The Ultimate Guide to Oysters in Point Reyes

Found on the outskirts of the Point Reyes National Seashore, Olema House is the perfect destination for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. While this spot is excellent for anyone looking to relax, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of adventures to embark on. Spend time at nearby state parks or on area bike trails. There’s also plenty for foodies to do in Point Reyes, including learning about oysters from farm to table.

Where to Have the Best Oyster Experiences

While our hotel in Northern California is home to two incredible dining options, one of the best parts of vacation is exploring the local food scene. Those looking to try delicious and fresh oysters have plenty of options.

  • Reserve your seat at Oysters in the Garden at Olema House for a magical evening. This two-hour experience for up to four includes a curated tasting menu of oysters and a bottle of mead wine from Heidrun Meadery. Take in views of the stunning gardens as you dine at the artfully set and styled table.
  • Get a behind-the-scenes look at Hog Island Oysters. This local oyster farm near Point Reyes offers two different tours. The Whole Hog Experience includes a farm tour, shucking class, oyster tasting, and a light tasting menu. The Classic Farm Tour will teach you about oysters and how they’re farmed. 
  • For a truly memorable outing, go on the Oyster Lovers Tour from Food and Farm Tours. Your tour starts in the boathouse at the end of Nick’s Cove Pier, where you’ll learn about the area’s history of oyster farming.
