Portarlington Mussel Tours
Sip, Taste, Experience the famour Portarlington Mussels and Bellarine Produce
Hop onboard our fully refurbished 40-year-old vessel for a luxurious and unique coastal experience.
Explore, taste and sip, while cruising on the glistening waters of Port Philip Bay, surrounded by sights of the You Yangs, the Melbourne city skyline and more.
Sip on a local Bellarine wine and learn about the various stages of mussel farming from our mussel farmer Lance Wiffen. Touch the mussel ropes as they’re pulled from the water and get a front row seat to the whole farming process.
Cooking demonstrations and tastings will introduce you to delicious mussel recipes that you can savour alongside premium local produce. With a small number of participants and a spacious vessel, there’ll always be a quiet spot to relax on the decks or the saloon if you simply want to chill out.
Our focus is your ultimate enjoyment. You’ll walk away with a new appreciation of the humble mussel, a deep understanding of sustainable aquaculture, and lasting memories of a great day on the bay. If you happen to spy a few dolphins or make some new friends, then that’s an added bonus!
