Ocean Harvest Expeditions

Catch and Prepare your West Coast Seafood Feast

  Expedition Vessel Type: Zodiac

Expedition Vessel Type: Zodiac

Our Ocean Harvest Expeditions offer guests a unique and unparalleled culinary experience of west coast cuisine.

Spend a week learning the basics and importance of sustainable seafood harvesting and local foraging while dining on your fresh catch prepared by a professional 5-star chef!

These multi-day ocean harvest excursions are based in the beautiful coastal fishing village of Bamfield, BC. From Bamfield, we will take daily boating excursions into the neighbouring aquatic world of Barkley Sound to harvest our local and wild food. This region is teeming with fresh local seafood which we will be targeting, including wild salmon, halibut, lingcod, pacific spot prawns, dungeness crab, mussels, clams, oysters and more. Our chefs and guides are avid fisherman and will show you the ropes on how to catch and prepare the various types of fish and shellfish that will be enjoyed later for your daily seafood feasts. From pulling the traps to plating the prawns - you will be apart of the entire experience.


During our down time between fishing, foraging, setting and pulling traps, guests will also be able to spend time wildlife viewing. Barkley Sound is frequented by an abundance of local and migratory coastal wildlife throughout the summer and fall seasons, such as humpback whales, grey whales, orcas, seals, sea lions, otters, eagles and black bears. Barkley Sound is also home to the national park segment of the Broken Group Islands, a breathtaking archipelago of over 100 ecologically protected islands which we can explore.

In the evenings, guests will have a chance to retire in the cozy comfort of the Bamfield lodge. Our guest chef will provide thorough explanations on how he prepares the daily catch and pairs each variation of food with local wine and craft beer. Our Ocean Harvest expeditions are a celebration of the coastal bounty. Prepare for the culinary experience of a lifetime!
