Big Island Abalone Reviews & Ratings
Would have loved to take a tour. But only on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. My parents bought a can of Abalone (2.6 oz) and shell was 45 dollars plus tax.
Very nice tour. The guide was very informative and I learned a lot. Really liked that you got to try a sample at the end. Very glad we stopped and took this tour.
This was such a fun experience! We got to see how abalone are grown and raised before they get eaten. It was also cool to see some of the sustainable aspects to their farms as abalone is becoming more vulnerable to being endangered. You can buy abalone to eat with different sizes at different price points. The tour is also worth seeing and there are plenty of abalone shells to keep.
Japanese couple own this farm. You can get abalone very reasonable. Large selection in size. The smallest one is the highest recommendation if you’d like to eat them row. Because the small one is crunchy and crispy. The shop is close to the airport , so you’d better go there directly from the airport on the way to the hotel. And it’s better to take soy source and Wasabi from Japan. No need to take knife cause it’s possible to peel abalone off from the shell by your finger.
Great place for a tour and to purchase abalone
