As the sun rises over picturesque Oyster Bay, keep an eye out for dolphins and seals frolicking in the shallows. The bay is home to oyster farms that can easily be seen at low tide. When in season, local oysters can be purchased or take a boat tour to taste oysters plucked straight from the sea, with Pacific Estate Oyster tours.
