5.0 (49 reviews)

Hi, we’re Kelpful, and we want you to eat more seaweed!
We’re a small worker owned cooperative run by women with a dream of farming seaweed. Currently, we are sustainably wild harvesting by hand, drying it in the sun, and offering it to people like you. We hope you relish the experience of eating this seaweed as much as we do. It tastes like the deep, clean ocean it came from - that we all came from! Your blood is the same salinity as the sea, the source of life on Earth . That’s why our bodies scream “YES!” when we eat seaweed!

We believe mother ocean has created an abundant, nutritious food source that we'd love to share with you. Our seaweed is sustainably wild harvested by hand at low tide and carefully dried in the sun. It is then meticulously packaged using the highest sanitation standards, and offered to our community with love. Seaweed is an abundant and highly nutritious food source that needs no fertilizers, pesticides, or fresh water to grow.

Trip: Seaweed Workshop

Guide: Jules M.

Our group had an incredible time at the seaweed workshop! Jules is exceptionally knowledgeable and very passionate about seaweed farming and foraging. We learned a lot while having fun making seaweed seasoning (that my husband won’t stop eating) and a seaweed bath salt mix that I can’t wait to try. All in all it was the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon by the bay! Highly recommend any Kelpful offerings!

Our seaweed foraging adventure with Jules was amazing. She picked the perfect day to go as the tides were low, the wind was minimal, and her secret spots were beautiful and peaceful. She was extremely knowledgeable about all the different varieties of plants and sea creatures we encountered during our Journey with her. We cooked up some seaweed the next day and made the best seaweed pesto ever with her recipe. I highly recommend doing a foraging class with her.

We had a great tour with Julie, she was super friendly, knowledgeable and personal. We brought our 1 year old and 5 year old and she was so sweet and accommodating to the kiddos. We had a great time harvesting, taste testing and even finding local wildlife like octopus, starfish, crabs and more! Definitely a fun family memory, we finished off the tour sipping warm seaweed broth!
