Join professional forager Dan Moar and his handsome canine companion Moose, for a 6+ hour experience, during the lowest tides of the year, exploring our coastal hedgerows, sandy shores & rocky tide pools.
These extreme low tides only occur a handful of times each year, and are the most anticipated events in the coastal forager's calendar. These super low tides uncover areas of the rocks that are covered by the tide for most of the year, giving us access to the best coastal foraging grounds and opportunities to interact with marine life you would normally only see while diving, such as sponges, soft corals, nudibranchs and much more.
The day will begin with meeting your guide at in Tenby, at at selected time, determined by the tides that day. Once the introductions are out of the way, you will start by exploring the flavour packed hedgerows in search of the best coastal ingredients and wild spices. After a few hours you will head by car to a second location where you will access the sand shores and rocky tide pools in search of a wide variety of seafood.
You will have plenty of opportunity to hone your skills as an extreme tide forager as you learn how, where and when to sustainably harvest the most sought after seafood around.
You will cover the following topics:
Wild Edibles & Deadables - Identification Tips
Sustainable Foraging - Habitat Identification - The Law & Foraging
Culinary & Medicinal Uses - History & Folklore
Plant Leaves, Flowers, Seeds, Fruits, Seaweeds, Cockles, Mussels, Razor Clams, Maya Clams, Crabs, Prawns and much more...
The session timings are dictated by the low tide times.
Please see our special events page for available 2024's dates
