I am sure that the oysters at Wescott Bay Oyster Farm are very good but on the two occasions when we stopped by to buy some either they were thoroughly picked over or there was no inventory at all......recommend that they do a better job of keeping inventory or at least letting people know that coming there is hit or...

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I had a wonderful experience here shucking and eating fresh oysters. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything that one needs is provided: oyster knives, gloves, condiments, and instructions if you need them. Being from the NC coast, we know how to shuck oysters, and we know good oysters when we eat them. These... More

I had never been to an oyster farm, but was willing to just go and see what it was like. I had an amazing time learning how to pick the best oysters and then how to shuck them the "easiest" way. The lady there was very helpful and informative about the history and growth of this relatively new farm. To... More

Pack a bottle of wine and a picnic to eat outside after buying oysters that could not be any fresher. This is really fun experience and they supply the picnic tables, the lovely view, the toppings, and the shucking lesson. On Friday afternoons, they also grill oysters. YUM! One of our favorite experiences on San Juan Island.

Stopped by to pick up some shellfish to cook at our vacation rental. Very helpful, friendly staff, everything was clean and well taken care of, and the seafood was priced very well.

What a wonderful surprise, finding the ability to shuck and eat fresh oysters at the end of a long hike! The people were wonderful and friendly, helping us get through the initial break-in period associated with schucking :) Then we devoured them with reckless abandon! And, a gorgeous view, sitting at a picnic table looking over the bay. Definitely worth... More

I had read about the oyster farm on TripAdvisor and decided to check it out. A picturesque setting overlooking the bay on a beautiful afternoon. We ordered a half dozen barbecued oysters , half with chipotle, half with "herb butter" . Tasted like pesto to me. They were FANTASTIC. So FANTASTIC we ordered another half dozen. My husband kept thanking... More

We LOVE fresh oysters on the half shell. So we were excited to come to a oyster farm and pick our own. The oysters we yummy and they have picnic tables, oyster schucking knives, gloves and sauces for you to use after you buy your oysters. Would recommend going to Westcott bay shellfish if on the island.
