During the season (May to June) look for the Gulf Rascal at the Government Dock in Madeira Park and pop by to shop fresh, wild, sustainable B.C. spot prawns. Better yet, head out with Rick and Roxanne to have a unique-to-B.C. experience for yourself on the Sunshine Coast. As Rick puts it: “Sheltered waters, beautiful scenery, there’s nothing better than fresh B.C. spot prawns!”
