Do you enjoy not-so-typical foods? Have you tried dulse yet? What is dulse, anyway?
Join Wanda Van Tassel of Fundy Adventures as she takes you on a dulsing adventure. This sea vegetable farmer is dedicated to sustainability as she harvests a variety of seaweed from around Gulliver's Cove, a part of the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve on the Bay of Fundy.
The Bay features the highest and lowest tides in the world -- rising and falling some 50ft as 100 billion tons of oceanwater rush in and out twice daily. Walk on the ocean floor at low tide and discover the plant life as you learn about, pick, and best of all eat the dulse. Taste seaweed fresh from the sea, learn about its health benefits right before she teaches you how to cook with it. Try Wanda's famous DLT (dulse, lettuce, tomato) sandwich, a dulse tea biscuit and a cup of dulse tea. Harvest and enjoy one of Nova Scotia's favourite sea snacks.
This experience is also great if you are looking for something the kids will enjoy - afterall, who doesn't like playing on the beach.
Your experience includes dulse harvesting instruction, hands-on harvesting, and refreshments.
