About Slash Creek Oyster Company:
Clamming and oystering on weekends with their water-loving spaniel, husband and wife team Spurgeon Stowe and Katherine McGlade wanted to bring the unique freshness and flavor of Hatteras Island oysters to the general public from the Pamlico Sound off of Hatteras Island.
Oyster Farm Tours:
Learn about mariculture oysters with a tour of Slash Creek Oyster Company Farm. Tours last an hour and begin at the dock at Slash Creek Oyster House. There you will learn about the equipment used for their growing operation and the process of how they grow oysters. From there you will hop on the oyster boat, The Half Shell, and take a short 10 minute ride out to the farm. On the farm, you will see the different stages of oyster growth and learn about oyster farming from Spurgeon Stowe, a fifth generation Hatterasman, who has lived his life on the water oystering, fishing, crabbing, and clamming with many stories to tell.
To book, please call Spurgeon at 252.995.2045.
