The Northwest Coast is an incredibly rich environment. Between wild edibles and the bounty from the sea, I don’t think you can starve on this amazing coastline. You can get hungry but if you’re not picky, there will always be something to eat!
As we start paddling around Vancouver Island, we will showcase some of the wild foods we find on the way. As a teaser, here are some of the wild plants we gathered on previous kayaking journeys on the BC coastline. There will be many more to come!!
This page is just a teaser and not a replacement for a good guide to edible plants if you’re interested in wild edible foods. We carry two guides with us when we’re out foraging. If you don’t know what it is, don’t eat it because there are plants out there that are poisonous.
