Urban Sea foraging


Our Sea Foraging classes are on hold for the moment but check back soon for some more dates!


Take a walk on the pier in the shadow of Alcatraz with Kirk Lombard, our resident sea foraging expert. On this tour, Kirk leads an entertaining and educational low-tide fishing class along San Francisco's urban shoreline.

Kirk will let you in on the tricks of the urban fishing trade: catching rock crabs, throwing a Hawaiian casting net, poke poling for flavorful eels, and finding the best mussel beds and edible seaweed.

This 2-hour tour combines science, history, and gastronomy. Please note that this is a class and tour, not a guided fishing/foraging trip. No one in the class is allowed to forage or fish while the class is in session, but you'll learn enough to find some dinner on your next walk by the beach.


Check back soon for more dates!

The meet location is at the stone lighthouse on the St. Francis Jetty in San Francisco. The nearest physical address is 1 Yacht Rd., CA 94123; however, the meet location is not at that address, it's at the lighthouse. Tell tour goers to enter the St. Francis parking area (Yacht Road, off Marina Blvd), and to keep bearing right. Ignore the signs that say "No parking beyond this point" and drive right up to the lighthouse to park.
