Williams Wharf Landing is open to the public from sunrise to sunset. No trespassing after sundown without permission or unless you are attending an event. During the day, we invite you to visit the Wharf with kayaks, canoes, small sailboats, rowing shells and other motorless watercraft to launch from the floating dock and enjoy the beautiful East River.

Because of restrictions imposed with one of the major grants used to restore the Wharf, we do not allow motor-powered boats to use the Wharf without permission and/or prior arrangements.

We also offer a covered Pavilion for outdoor but sheltered picnics, and a fishing pier (bring your license!). Due to insurance requirements, groups of 16 or more must call 804-725-9685 to reserve facilities for your event. 
October 5, 2019 - 10 AM-2 PM - TOGA will hold its Annual Oyster Float Workshop at Williams Wharf Landing (1039 Williams Wharf Rd., Mathews, VA 23109) from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, October 5, 2019.  This region of Virginia is great for oyster gardening, and Williams Wharf has a long and colorful history with oysters. The event is open to the public with no fee and no requirement to purchase anything.

Everything you need to become an oyster gardener will be available. TOGA will have floats, cages, accessory tools, float components and crab pot line for sale along with an education display and literature to hand out. Several Master Oyster Gardeners (MOGS) will answer your questions or discuss the latest ideas in raising oysters to eat and clean the Bay. Vendors will be on hand to sell oyster spat/seed, accessories, float alternatives and provide advice.

New this year, TOGA will also conduct a class on basic oyster gardening at the pavilion at 11:00 AM.  The new Tidal Tumbler float will be available for sale.  This float tumbles your oysters as the tide rises and falls, keeping them cleaner and helping to develop a deeper cup.
