It was great to learn how to catch crabs, monkeyface eels and small fish such as herring, sardines and anchovies. I'm already getting myself ready to fish on my own - and catch monkeyface eels!

Kirk is truly on the avant garde of the urban foraging movement. We learned a ton about things that we can catch and eat reasonably easily in this area and we got to witness him catch two monkeyface eels in front of our eyes. If you're into...continued

Fantastic tour! My husband hates seafood, but after attending this class, he is keen for some crabbing and getting Kirk's fantastically fresh seafood once a week!

Great value, would recommend it only to people with strong interest in fishing. Needs to be more kinetic, more hands-on, and more visual. Kirk was overall an excellent guide and entertainer.

It was raining cats and dogs, so I called Kirk to see if we could reschedule. He refused to do so. I understand that he is trying to make a living, but felt that he should have a more flexible policy regarding rainy days, since there aren't that...continued

Kirk is extremely informative and it was great to discover what you can dig/fish up just in the Marina alone.
