We toured on the opening day of Dungeness Crab Season--Kirk caught/released a 7" (large) one from the starting point on the public pier...in the first 10...continued

The tour was terrific. As others have reported, Kirk is extremely knowledgeable and personable. He is also very interesting, and he can answer any possible question you might have on what seafood is safe to eat, and, if you think you might want to...continued

Kirk's is extremely generous with his knowledge and successfully taught all of us how to procure meals from the sea and much about the politics of fishing on the West Coast. And it was all FUN! His passion rubs off on you.

Kirk is quite a character and wealth of knowledge. Though I expected to dig in the sand for clams and get wet, the experience was still great. We learned how to set traps to catch crab, how to pick mussels off the wall, how to throw a net to...continued

Kirk is very informative and transmits his knowledge very effectively. It was geared to people who either fish or want to fish, but will make anyone who eats or orders fish think about their choice of fish to eat.An added bonus is getting a...continued

This tour was excellent!

It was more of a lecture and demonstration than a 'tour' but it was very educational, interesting, and fun. Kirk's passion for the Bay Area and his respect for all of the tasty creatures around us was contagious. ...continued

Knowledgeable, personable Kirk gives out practical and hands-on information for the amateur fisherperson. Be sure to dress warmly, at least at this time of year. Prepare to walk for the 2+ hours.

Fantastic time out at the marina! Kirk's passion for foraging and aquatic life is compelling. Took a friend for her birthday present, we both learned a lot and the 2 plus hours on the tour seemed like 30 minutes because it all interesting.

very informative. this is to learn how to forage seafood in CA rather than taking you on a foraging trip. Kirk is a wealth of knowledge!

If you haven't met Kirk you're missing a great thing. Learn from him, laugh with him, hell... Laugh at him. He doesn't care.

Great experience, all of it useful, interesting, and entertaining. My high school age son also thought it was great.
