Are you looking to buy oysters online? These Alaskan oysters are harvested in the pristine, cold waters of Kachemak Bay. Enjoy these Kachemak Bay oysters as oyster soup, oyster chowder or eat them as a raw oyster.


Kachemak Bay Oysters thrive in the salt water of Alaska's coastline because the water is so cold. Alaskan oysters don't reproduce in waters this cold, which makes for a high-quality half shell oyster with sweet, plump meat that our customers enjoy.


These suspended oysters can feed continually on plankton in the water and avoid exposure to hot summer suns, cold winter winds, mud and sand. As a result of this coddled life, Kachemak Bay Oysters are uniformly shaped with deep cups and plump meats -- perfect for serving on the half shell.


Kachemak Bay Oysters are among the safest oysters in the marketplace, especially compared with other regions that operate under harvest limitations because of public health concerns. The reason may be the cold and pristine Alaskan waters. Kachemak Bay Oysters are harvested from waters that rarely exceed 50°F.
