We will be looking to take all of Kirk's other tours, as well as revisting this one with some new people.

A casual, informative tour with Kirk - a great personality with a wealth of passion, humor and knowledge about the Bay, foraging and environmental issues. A great way to get an introduction to an aspect of the bay largely ignored by most of the...continued

A fun tangential romp. Kirk's encyclopedic knowledge of the bay and it's fishery is matched by his rollicking free form, at times wandering delivery. He has great stories, an interesting perspective, and a factoid for everything coastal. Who knew...continued

He knows just about every law and sea creature in the bay! Our tour was scheduled for 2.5 hours, but lasted 3.5! He told us we were free to go if we had other plans, but only a few people actually left. His stories and upbeat attitude were so...continued

I was incredibly impressed by the depth of knowledge that Kirk possesses. His offbeat humor and passion for fishing really kept us engaged during the tour. I can't more highly recommend this tour, even if you aren't interested in foraging...continued

Kirk is a fabulous tour guide and teacher who obviously enjoys what he does. He tailored the content and activities to suit what the group wanted and their ages. I learned enough to feel confident that I could actually do a bit of foraging...continued

Kirk is a passionate man. His knowledge of the sea will astound you if not amaze you. Every time he pulls up the little gems from the sea the group always gasped and stared at the wondrous creatures emerging from the depths. On our tour he...continued

KIrk is knowledgeable, and entertaining in his delivery. His demonstrations were clear, and there were hands on moments, like when we got to practice throwing nets for our future makerel harvests!

Kirk Takes you around the Marina pier, describing poke-poling, net casting and other fun fishing techniques in an awesomely laid back, entertaining and informative tour. He is hilarious and clearly knows a ridiculous amount about the topic. If you...continued

Marvelous tour and, for some of us, right in our backyard. Time flew by, everyone improved on their net toss and learned so much about fish, seaweed, and local fishing industry. We eagerly await the herring spawn. Kirk made all of us feel welcome.

Off the HOOK! Event title/description is accurate. Kirk is truly a master of this domain, coupled with a natural talent to verbalize a vast amount of information in fashion that makes it virtually impossible not to come away inspired to become a...continued

This was 2.5 hours of fun. I like fishing but feel even if you are not a fisherman you would like this. He goes into laws, sustainability, how to live of the local food.
