Everything tastes a little better if you work for it yourself, and the Eastern Shore's sweet little neck clams are no exception. Join us for a paddle to a clam bed in Cherrystone Creek, and we'll prove it to you!
After a brief paddle clinic on shore, you and your guide will push off from Cherrystone Point and head off to explore Cherrystone Creek a bit. You never know what birds you might see, and the Savage Neck area where you'll be kayaking has quite an interesting history. Next, you'll paddle over to a local family owned clam bed to start thinking about dinner. Your guide will explain to you the fascinating aquaculture process on which so many Eastern Shore folks depend for their living (aquaculture and agriculture are our two biggest industries!) and then it's out of the boats and into the water with you! You'll find yourself giggling like a little kid as you feel around in the silky, sandy mud with your toes for as many clams as you can pull up. So much fun! Once you've got as many as you can eat, freeze or share, we'll head back to shore, count your catch, and send you on your way so you can get started cooking them up!
We offer this trip any day when we can get a good low tide with advanced reservations (those clams live on the bottom of the creek, you know). The cost is $55 per paddler which covers your guide, boat, gear, and your first dozen little necks! You can also purchase as many more as you like at the wholesale rate of $0.25 per clam.
