Què farem?

CURRENTLY WE ARE IN LONELY PLANET TOP 6 FORAGING DESTINATIONS IN THE US! All along the pristine coast of Central California, many species of delicious edible seaweeds exist. Kelp is some of the most tasty and nutritious of wild superfoods! I will meet participants and take them to seldom visited local spots and teach them basic phycology (marine algae science) and sustainable harvesting techniques. Not only will participants partake in a unique experience surrounded by breathtaking scenery, but they will leave with the knowledge of how to sustainably harvest nutritious seaweed for themselves for years to come. We make an amazing seaweed Ramen in the traditional Japanese form at the end.
Other things to note
I WILL SEND YOU EXACT LOCATION AFTER BOOKING > We will be harvesting edible seaweed. Unlike land foraging, there are no toxic seaweeds to worry about. We will show you how to tide pool with minimal impact upon the marine environment.

Harvesting and eating seaweed is my passion that I will share with you as the guide of these amazing family friendly intertidal adventures. I especially love passing down harvesting knowledge to my own children and the next generation of foragers. I started off as an edible kelp harvester and also sell my fresh and dried product at farmer's markets. I also make a killer seaweed forager's ramen. I've been the foreman of aquaculture facilities such as the Morro Bay Oyster Company and a licensed commercial salmon fisherman and like to think I've become more sustainable as I age. My family heritage is Irish/British and harvesting fresh seaweed is in my heritage. Come enjoy the intertidal with me and my family!

On aniràs?

We will meet at Estero Bluffs State Park a few miles north of Cayucos, CA. From there we will travel to one of several large tidepool areas between Estero Bluffs and Ragged Point, near southern Big Sur. No matter what tide is present there will always be edible seaweed available for participants to enjoy. We also are usually lucky enough to see many marine mammals and creatures that inhabit the intertidal ecosystem

Highlight of my trip! Spencer was incredibly informative without going over your head with the minutiae and I learned more about seaweed than I thought possible. This was a truly unique experience in a beautiful setting, just walking around tidepools absorbing knowledge, snacking on seaweed bits. I met some cool people too, I imagine this type of thing brings around like-minded, curious, nature-appreciating people. Spencer is really personable, he makes it easy to ask any and all questions. Even though I with 6 other people, it felt like a conversation with friends. While you're walking along rocky tidepools, Spencer always makes sure you're not uncomfortable with going out too far where it's slippery or where your feet or ankles will be in the water - he'll go further out to gather seaweed samples and bring them back to explain. My boyfriend really appreciated this; he's less sure-footed and was hesitant at first to go on the tour because of this. We both agreed this was one of the best travel experiences we've had and I wouldn't pass it up if you have there's availability. I would even go so far as to say book your trip around it. It was that good.

Spencer is very friendly and full of seaweed knowledge. This was a fun and very educational experience. If you are an adventurer, you will love this experience. Especially if you also love sustainability like me! Getting to eat your food at the end really sums up the experience, and makes you feel so empowered afterward!

Highly recommend this foraging experience with Spencer! He is so knowledgeable, and it was such a unique experience to learn all about and forage the seaweed that we’ve been eating our whole lives! The seaweed ramen at the end was so delicious with a flavorful, umami-rich broth. Definitely a highlight to our trip!

Super fun, and a must if you're into foraging. Plus it adds another cool thing to look for and collect at the beach other than rocks or seashells.

We had an amazing time! We had been looking for an introduction to foraging and this experience was perfect. Spencer was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed his engaging stories, thoughtful insights, and helpful recommendations. The fresh seaweed ramen he made for us was delicious and we are excited to experiment with the seaweed we brought home!

I love foraging on land and have been curious about learning more about foraging for seaweed. This was the perfect blend of learning, experiencing and socializing. Spencer was very knowledgeable and the location was great. The walk to the beach was only a few minutes and once there, there were many options , depending on your level of interest in getting wet and finding seaweed. The seaweed ramen was surprisingly delicious- even the young kids that were in the group loved it! I highly recommend this adventure!!
