Kirk Lombard takes the mystery out of finding delicacies of the ocean; it's not as difficult as you would think -- just some hard work and inventive equipment. Very enjoyable as Kirk is outgoing, personable, entertaining and knowledgeable. I will...continued

Kirk really knows his stuff and his passion (obsession?) for all things aquatic really shows. I appreciated his willingness to answer any question tour members had and basically tailor the tour to the interests of his audience.

Kirk's passion is infectious! I liked his tips on local mom & pop's "tackle shops." He also has great stories about selling his catch to restaurants.

Knowledgeable, friendly, informative and fun. I've lived in SF for over a decade, spend tons of time on the water and I still walked away with a boat load of cool information about the bay and coastal areas.

My son and I went for Kirk's afternoon tour. He is very knowledgeable and explains/teaches how to fish for numerous types of sea creatures. My son (10 years old) had such a great time he didn't want to leave.

Nowhere In this event did it mention that it wasn't appropriate for children. In fact, I actually spoke with Kirk before buying this to see if I had to pay for my 7 year old and 3 year old of which he had me pay for the 7yr old. Upon arriving,...continued

So fun. We flung mesh boxes dangling from fishing poles into the waves to cratch crabs. All the crabs were described. We watched him catch a Monkey Faced eel. We learned about easily picked edibles like limpets, snails and mussles. And Kirk...continued

The most informative and inspiring how-to experience I've had in a very long time. Think seafood on the West Coast is limited to petrale sole, dungeness crabs and halibut? Take this class. You have no idea what natural bounty is literally out...continued
