At times, Kirk exhibits the enthusiasm and excitement of a 4-year old kid on their first visit to the shore...it was easy to get caught up in the fun, especially with the wealth of knowledge (biological, ecological, and legal) he brings to this...continued

This was a great way to do something different for my birthday. If not for this tour, I would never have been at the beach at 7AM and it was beautiful. We learned so much about a place I have been dozens of times before. I will never simply walk...continued

Fabulous afternoon with a thoroughly engaging, enthusiastic seafood forager. We learned a great deal, were amazed by Kirk's wealth of knowledge, and came home with the most delish mussels (think wine, shallots, and garlic) and a rock fish (with...continued

Very entertaining and opens some new doors for beach "clamming" activities we haven't enjoyed before. Kirk and his sidekick Mike were
engaging and funny during the messy digging and scrounging. Afterwards the nearby restaurants provided the...continued

I had the *best* time in my front yard (well, maybe not literally but less than a 10-minute drive away). I live on the coast, and I thought it would be great to learn more about the local flora and fauna. Kirk's tour was filled with tons of fun...continued

I would have like to spend more time learning about more things rather than spending so much time on one or 2 things.

This is a really cool "event". Kirk is a great guide, and Mike is a great sidekick. You learn a lot, but a couple of things to keep in mind: waterproof boots are good, and taller is better. And if you want to forage a bit for yourself, make sure...continued

If you have any interest at all in the sea or where your food comes from, this is a great tour to take. Kirk is full of knowledge and is ready to share it! Make sure to wear boots or shoes with excellent soles as you're climbing around tide pools....continued
