Thirty years of professional sailing experience meets 30 years of crabbing, foraging and cooking experience. Two lifelong passions for the water, crabbing, fishing, entertaining and vintage wooden boats have come together to create this unique Airbnb Experience. I've been crabbing the waters of Indian Arm, in North Vancouver for the last three decades. As a professional food blogger and chef, I will teach you how to fish for, and prepare our sweet Westcoast Dungeness Crab, on location at our stunning oceanfront, off-grid home, Allswell Cottage (also an Airbnb Stay).

Where you'll be

We will crab together in the sheltered ocean waters of Say Nuth Khaw Yum Provincial Park [aka Indian Arm Park], located in North Vancouver, BC. This massive fjord extends north from Burrard Inlet. The spectacular landscape features rugged, forested mountains, several creeks and towering waterfalls. We will cook our catch at the outdoor Summer Kitchen of Allswell Cottage, our Airbnb off-grid oceanfront home located in Coldwell Beach, Indian Arm.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 6 and up can attend. Guests should be comfortable on the water, though if stormy or unsafe on the water for any reason, we will need to reschedule your workshop so that you can enjoy the best experience possible.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Weather appropriate clothing and outer weather gear

More tips

Come prepared with outdoor coats/clothing. There is no smoking/vaping on board, nor at any location during your time with us. No pets. Children six (6) and over must be parent supervised. We'll go out rain or shine, be ready. We will cancel if marine conditions are such that it's not safe that day.
