About Pleasure House Oysters:

We are a boutique oyster producer that specializes in fine, hand crafted half shell oysters for sale to local eateries. We also offer boat based tours and tastings on the Lynnhaven River.

We offer boat based tours of our oyster farm on the Lynnhaven River in Virginia Beach. These excursions offer our guests the opportunity to get out of the boat and actually walk around the sand bars of our farm site. Marine ecology, marsh habitat and living creatures in these environs surround our voyage in addition to oysters of course! Near the end of the two-hour “Tasting Tour” we shuck and sample oysters fresh from the waters or previously harvested depending on the time of year. On the “Waterman Tour” guests actually get to pull other types of gear like crab pots, eel pots and sort oysters right out of the cages or reefs. The “Chef’s Table Tour” is a unique dining experience where already prepared local foods are served at a table on the farm or in our boat on site at the farm itself. There is a minimum of four guest tickets to be sold for the “Tasting” and “Waterman” tours and a minimum of two tickets for the “Chef’s Table” tour.
