Sustainably Farmed Seafood
Farm Tour & Tasting Experience
The Carlsbad Aquafarm
Carlsbad Aquafarm is Southern California’s only shellfish farm and has been growing Pacific oysters since 1990. We are committed to pursuing a balance between producing seafood of unsurpassed quality and conserving our ocean’s resources. The Carlsbad Aquafarmers Market seeks to bring local, sustainable and quality-assured seafood to your dinner table.
Perfect date idea! We did the tour and it included a shucking class with an extremely GENEROUS tasting. The experience was an hour and our tour guide was the BEST. It's safe to say my boyfriend and I are confident now in our shucking skills and we've already gotten another dozen through pick up since our experience two weeks ago. Can't wait until mussels are in season to try those out!
This is likely one of the "best kept secrets" in Carlsbad!
The tour was 5 stars plus and the information gained was superb! The oyster tasting at the end was a spectacular finish to a well spent afternoon - highly recommend!
No matter how you feel about raw oysters, this tour was so much fun and incredibly informative. Our guide, shared an impressive knowledge of the farming, the eco system and the interaction with the desalinization plant next door. I would highly recommend this as an outing suitable for singles or groups.
We had a great time at the Aquafarm. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and interesting. The oyster tasting was delicious. We will be back to buy some fresh oysters for home.

A hidden gem! The farm tour was in-depth and super cool to learn about the history and how the aqua farm impacts everything around it! We had the most amazing guide and was incredibly knowledgeable. The oyster shucking and tasting was fantastic! I have NEVER tasted oysters that good in my life. This was such a fun date with my boyfriend and I highly recommend!
Learn a little about oyster farming and then eat a lot of oysters. Friendly, casual vibe. Better than expected. Highly recommend!
