Can I pre-order for pickup at Ladner Wharf?

Yes, we will have a limited amount reserved for pre-order reservations on select days. Pre-order pickup is between 9-11am. Do not select this option if you cannot make it during that time window. Any pre-orders that are not picked up will be forfeited without a refund. If your desired pickup day is not available, you are welcome to come early for walk-up sales, which will be on a first come, first served basis. Walk-up sales start at 10am daily until sold out.

Pre-orders are also available for Greater Vancouver home delivery. We deliver live spot prawns on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays during the spot prawn season. You can choose either 5lb or 10lb for home delivery.

Am I guaranteed my live spot prawn pre-order?

With your pre-orders, we are guaranteeing you the first priority on our catch of the day. In the event of weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, our spot prawn supply may be impacted and your order may be rescheduled.

When is my spot prawn delivery coming?

You get our fresh catch of the day so your live spot prawn delivery order is subject to prawn availability. Our delivery window is 11am-2pm and our driver will try to contact you 30-60 minutes prior to their arrival. You must be home to receive your delivery, or you must authorize the driver to leave your order outside at your own risk. Missed orders are forfeited without a refund.

What happens if I miss my pre-order?

Any missed/late pickups will be forfeited without a refund. Orders cannot be changed or cancelled. Choose your quantity and delivery/pickup date carefully. Pre-order reservations must be picked up on the day and time you selected. 

Can you separate my live spot prawns into bags?

No, we cannot separate your prawns into smaller bags. Thank you for your understanding.

What if I ordered other seafood products (that are not spot prawns)?

Other seafood products are also available for home delivery and pickup on select dates so make sure to choose a date where both live spot prawns and other seafood products are available for delivery/pickup. Frozen seafood pickup will NOT be at 5000 Elliott Street. Our self-serve pickup location during spot prawn season is very close by and pre-order/preparation is required.

Do you ship to Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, or other major cities in Canada?

We are not shipping live spot prawns outside of Greater Vancouver at this point. Please contact us to express interest.
