Hello and happy 2020! It looks like this year‘s oysters are going to be salty, amazing! Come book today..
My name is Andre Hebert and my wife Jeanette. We have lived in New Orleans all of our life. We are so blessed to not only live in a city know for its food, music and architecture, but to also work in such a great city. I am a commercial Fisherman. My main catch is Louisiana Blue Crab. I have always wanted to educate individuals on how to enjoy and prepare Louisiana Seafood.

Amazing experience, totally recommend! Everyone is so lovely and you get to experience so many neat things. We learned how to shuck oysters, ate FANTASTIC food cooked in front of us by our wonderful hosts, and got to enjoy a boat tour. We even saw alligators! We would return in a heartbeat if we are ever back in the area.

We had a wonderful time with Andre and Jeanette. We were looking for a unique experience that was off the beaten path, and this really fit the bill. The oysters were delicious, we left stuffed, and hanging out with Andre and crew was a highlight. They also have a great place, easy to get to from the city and located right on the bayou - after stuffing ourselves we hung out on the dock and enjoyed watching the local wildlife. Would highly recommend this experience or any of the others that Andre and Jeanette provide (the crabbing experiences look like a blast).

I cannot rave about Andre and his crew enough. This was truly a “hanging with the locals” type of experience which is our FAVORITE! They treated us like family, fed us until we were stuffed, taught us how to shuck oysters, and let us hang out on their dock with the pelicans. We will be back soon!

Andre and the Captain were incredible hosts! They were gracious and enthusiastic and such genuine and friendly people. We shucked oysters during our experience in which the ladies taught our group followed by delicious preparation by the captain who prepared oysters grilled, fried, and raw. The Captains’ grilled oysters were truly the best grilled oysters I’ve ever had. It was really an incredible experience and we loved meeting the family. We can’t wait to schedule another event. Thank you so much for the fun times and hospitality!
