Kenai Peninsula Borough, Hesketh Island, Alaska 99603, USA

About the event

Hesketh Island is a remote, rocky outcropping in Kachemak Bay near Homer, Alaska. It’s a stunning setting, surrounded by fantastical rock formations and rich marine life. From here, we’ll forage seaweed, mussels, and sea urchin by kayak, and pick wild berries and greens while hiking through the nearby forests. At Wild Food camp you’ll learn to break down whole fish and use the eggs, head, bellies and collars. You'll open oysters and make seaweed pasta.  We’ll craft compotes, jams and cordials (for cocktails and mocktails) with foraged berries and delicious savory dishes with wild mushrooms.

Join Food Writer and Chef Maria Finn and Outdoor guide and principal at True North Kayak Adventures Alison O’Hara, as they show you their favorite food-centric adventures in this spectacular setting.

Homebase will be the Smokey Bay Chalet, a gorgeous house with an open kitchen and wrap-around deck with views of the Augustine volcano. There’s also a sauna that sits over a stream at the edge of the beach.

Cost includes all activities, meals, beverages, and transportation to and from the island. Not included is travel to Homer, Alaska, and accommodations before or after camp.
