    Default Spring is here "finally" !!

    Got cabin fever and itching to get out on the water but don't want to spend chilly nights on your boat ??? Come volunteer at the farm and we will give you a warm bed to sleep in,food to eat and you will still have time to get out and enjoy the water and fishing !!! We have things for everyone to do: cleaning and sorting oysters,firewood,small building projects,net mending,organinzing and many other projects.Send us a message either here or at perry_island@yahoo.com if you are interested.Those of you who came out and helped last year are welcome to come again,we enjoyed your company and really appreciated the help.

    Headed out to Deep Water bay evening of 17th through 20th. Second season with my boat so I'm not familiar with who you are or where you're located, or what you do. But, I like the idea of volunteering and helping a non-profit or something similar so can you provide more information here publically so others will know and PM me if you need some supplies brought out. I'll be leaving Anchorage, evening of 17th and should be on the hook in Deep Water before dark on the 17th. But can bring stuff by on the 18th.

    So, I found your facebook page, but not really any information about who you guys are. Is the "volunteering" a "work for food and lodging" situation? If so, I like it, as I'm in a 20ft Sportsman and I'm always looking for a dry place to camp, etc. The weekend of the 17th - 20th I'll be rafting up and staying on a friends boat, but if you still need some supplies hauled out let me know. I've been to West Twin bay and East Twin Bay, but never South Bay, so a good excuse to go explore while the pots are soaking.

    They run the oyster farm in South Bay on Perry Island. Fantastic oysters!

    We are a small oyster farm located in South Bay Perry Island.We continue to grow each year and can always use some help here at the farm.We will offer a warm place to sleep,basic meals,shower if needed (oyster work is dirty) in exchange for help on the farm,we have internet access and satelite tv also.We need help with cleaning and sorting oysters,small scale building projects,firewood gathering,painting and staining,help in salvaging the wood from a boat shed that blew over and many other projects.Something for every skill level.We do have a few moorings for boats also.We don't expect people to work really long days but to put in a fair amount of work in exchange for your stay,you will have plenty of time for fishing or hiking around and exploring the bear free island.We do need to kniow when volunteers want to come out because we can only accomodate 3-4 adults in our guest room right now but will hopefully have more room in the next few weeks (depending on when we get help).

    We are looking forward to seeing all the early season boaters.Please remember to bring small bills if buying oysters because we won't be able to break alot of large bills.Hope you have great weather for the shrimp opener.
