Get a little taste of Casco Bay delivered directly from my boat to your doorstep!
Most weeks: Order by noon on Tuesday > oysters are shipped on Wednesdays via UPS Next Day Air > oysters (should) arrive to you on Thursday! (holidays may differ, see date picker for specific shipping dates around holidays).
Q: Where do you ship to?
A: At the moment, shipping orders are going anywhere inside the continental US.
Q: How much does shipping cost?
A: Shipping is included in the total price you see right here when you select the quantity you want. Nothing else will be added in the checkout process.
Q: How are the oysters packaged?
A: Your oysters will arrive to you in a fully curbside recyclable ClimaCell insulated shipping box (not styrofoam cause that stuff is evil). The oysters will be packed with frozen gel packs to ensure they stay properly cold during their journey.
Q: I want to serve oysters on a Saturday, but you only ship on Wednesdays. Will the oysters still be good by then and how should I store them?
A: After arrival, your oysters should keep perfectly well in your refrigerator for 7-10 days. Because I know most folks will be storing them for some amount of time, I am always doing my best to harvest as close to shipping time as possible, ensuring that the oysters that arrive to you are as fresh out of Casco Bay as they can possibly be. Just pop them into a bowl to catch any drips and keep them in your fridge until you’re ready to shuck them!
Q: What happens if my order gets delayed – how do I know if the oysters are still safe to eat?
A: Unfortunately, once I drop the box off at the UPS pickup office, the timeliness of your order’s arrival is out of my hands and at the whim of weather and any infrastructure challenges that might arise. The GOOD news, though, is that I try my hardest to plan for the inevitability that some orders will get delayed. This means I pack your oysters with enough frozen gel packs to safely travel for 2 days. You will also find a nifty little sticker on the underside of the cooler lid that, once activated, will indicate to you if your oysters have been exposed to unsafe temperatures. If you still have a little ice left in the gel packs, and if that sticker isn’t turning red to alert you of an unsafe temperature exposure, you can feel confident that your oysters are safe to eat.
