Did you ever think, when you were sitting down at a restaurant somewhere, eating delicious salty clams, or even shopping at a seafood market for them, that you would be spending time in an area where you could go dig them up on your own? Talk about a rewarding, freshest of the fresh, dinner providing, toes in the sand, cooling off in the water, enjoying the OBX sunshine, experience you just shouldn’t miss out on!
On this trip, we leave the big boat at the dock and head out to shallow waters in a 21′ Privateer. We run this charter during warmer months because we get out of the boat and into the water to dig for your own clams! It’s a great way to cool off during these hot OBX summers! We will show you how to pull a clam rake and hear that most rewarding “TINK” sound when the stainless steel tines of the clam rack graze a clamshell buried under the sea. All clams harvested are yours to keep. Captain Russell and Mate Mike will be happy to share ideas on their favorite ways to cook them! Some guests may choose to wear water shoes, while others prefer their barefeet in the sand, entirely up to you.
Don’t forget your sunblock on this trip!
