Discover and Dine: Shellfish

April 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 8:30 pm

This unique event offers nourishment for the mind and belly! In partnership with the Raincoast Society, Long Beach Lodge Resort is hosting a ‘Discover & Dine’ experience that includes a hands-on, coastline-focused workshop on mollusks, followed by three-course-feast, prepared by Chef Shaun Snelling, in honour of the lesson.



One day, three unique sessions.

Discover, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The day will begin with a hands on lesson and field trip with Marine Biologist Educators from Raincoast Education Society. We will share our insights on bivalves and how their biology relates to safe and sustainable harvesting. Learn which species are found locally, how they are harvested, and what shellfish do for our oceans!

Discover more, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Ever wondered how to prepare a shellfish feast? After a break for lunch we will reconvene at Long Beach Lodge Resort for a demonstration on shellfish preparation and cooking techniques. After the demonstration, take some time to relax in the Great Room while the kitchen prepares your feast!

Dine, 6:00 pm
To conclude the day we will enjoy a 3-course shellfish feast specifically designed by Executive Chef Shaun Snelling to highlight the delicious flavours of this diverse category of seafood.

Ticket price

"Dreamy West Coast Wedding"
We had a intimate wedding in October and it was everything we wanted and more. Working with the Event Manager, Maxeen and her team was a dream. The vendor list they provide is very helpful and helped us to find flowers and hair/makeup with ease. They took care of all the coordinating and we had full trust not seeing the ceremony location or reception until moments before. We loved everything. The lodge is stunning right on Cox Bay, we stayed in the cottages which was great for a quick hot tub in between ceremony and dinner! Family friendly. There was also many small details throughout the stay provided by the lodge staff that made the weekend extra special! Also, the meal was incredible - enjoyed by everyone! So grateful!
"2 critical travellers"
Long Beach Lodge Resort have excellent staff who always focus on the client. Helpful in all regards. Food is superb, and generous. Breakfasts are particularly tasty and generous. The beach area is walkable with lots of activity.
"Great meal and great service in the Great Room"
My wife, my family and I enjoyed a very special anniversary dinner, in the Great at Room, at long Beach Lodge on November 15, last year. Everyone in our party was impressed and each thought the other was going to write a great review. Oops! The meal was served by Katherine, who was exceptionally gracious and knowledgeable. We have eaten here many times before and have always enjoyed the food and the service, but this anniversary was memorable by any comparison, thanks to Katherine’s knowledge and recommendations, for both food and beverage. She has a gift in personality and knowing just how to make something extra special. We will be back at LBL again this month so looking forward to more excellent dining.
