Kirk and his assistant Mike and Kasey rock! I especially love how he emphasis on Eco system and sustainability and no over fishing. This tour is very educational.

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...

Named Best Walking Tour 2011 by SF Weekly


This three-hour intertidal foraging expedition will blow your mind!

These tours are scheduled at the lowest of low tides so you will be sure to see a vast intertidal smorgasbord of shellfish, (clams, limpets, rock crabs, goose barnacles, mussels) fish (monkeyface eels, grass rock fish, cabezon) and sea weeds (bull kelp, rock weed, nori, sea lettuce) and various other creatures! This class is a mix of “how-to” info, regulations, sustainability, ecology, and more.  Though you won’t be able to forage for yourself on this tour, Kirk can give away anything that he catches and gathers — potentially quite a lot of stuff!
