Seaweed Foraging Tours

Book Your Stay

At Marley Family Seaweeds, Spencer and the bunch do offer private foraging tours along the Central Coast. We were lucky enough to be profiled in the recent SLO New Times article “Harvesting the Sea” and Lonely Planet’s “Top 6 Places to Go Foraging in the US”. This is an intimate and educational experience that is always family friendly. Often, my children will join your children in showing them the wonders of central California tide pools. We love the thoughtful, curious and forward thinking people that we take sea harvesting.

Fun, educational, and low impact private foraging tours collect many species of delicious edible seaweed. Perfect for couples or the whole family, you’ll discover kelp is some of the tastiest and most nutritious of wild superfoods. Discover secret spots and learn sustainable harvesting techniques.. Seaweed Ramen is a treat served at the end of the tour. 

We like to keep our footprints low key to prevent over-harvesting and keep this amazing resource sustainable here in San Luis Obispo county. You can book seaweed tours HERE. We fill up quite fast during the summer, so book now.
