Children 12 and over can participate in the tour at the full adult rate of $95/person. Our tour is not suitable for anyone under 12 years old. Mainly due to height, both for fitting into adult river waders and for wading in tidal waters. We also don't have child seats for the bus. However, we are happy to take families on the following conditions:
1) Due to seating you will need to follow the tour bus and drive your own vehicle down the dirt service road to the farm (15 minute drive). No special vehicle required.
2) One guardian will need to stay on land and take full responsibility for the children throughout the water based part of the tour. However we suggest that if there are 2 adults that they both put on waders and swap over half way as the water section (taking up approximately 45 minutes of the tour) is not far off shore (approximately 20 metres).
3) Adults will pay a full fee of $95/person. Children under 12 are free of charge. In the case your child enjoys seafood we have the option to purchase additional oysters and mussels at shop price so that they can join in the tasting part of the tour.
The easiest way to book would be online for the adults and advise us on the registration form of how many children will be attending. You can also email us to place an order for additional sea food for the children (E.g 1 bowl mussels and 6 oysters) and we can inform you of the price. You can pay for the kids food on the day. We have a portable Eftpos machine or you can pay cash.
We have a look and learn treasure map for the children to enjoy while they wait.
