We recently had the pleasure of doing the weekend farm tour and tasting at Carlsbad Aquafarm, and I can't say enough about this place – it's a true gem for seafood enthusiasts! 🦪
From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff who were eager to share their passion for oysters. The farm tour was not only educational but also an immersive experience that left me in awe of their sustainable practices and commitment to preserving the environment.
The highlight, of course, was the hands-on exploration of the touch tanks. I got up close and personal with a variety of shellfish, including the biggest, most beautiful mussels, oysters
and others I've ever seen.
The oyster shucking demonstration was a real treat, and shucking my own oysters with a breathtaking view of the lagoon was an experience I won't forget. The provided tools, lemons, hot sauce, and water - everything we needed.
And let's not forget the star of the show – the oysters themselves! The generous tasting of six oysters was an absolute delight. They were undoubtedly the biggest, freshest and most flavorful oysters I've ever had the pleasure of savoring. Each one was a burst of oceanic goodness, and it's safe to say I won't be looking for oysters anywhere else.
Carlsbad Aquafarm is a must-visit destination for anyone who appreciates sustainable seafood and a unique, hands-on experience. The dedicated team, stunning lagoon views, and, of course, the incredible oysters make it a five-star experience all the way. I can't recommend this place enough – you won't be disappointed!
