The tide is out. You have a spade in one hand and a bucket in the other. That's pretty much all you need to go clamming on Prince Edward Island. But knowing the best places to go digging and where to look once you get there is much more of a challenge so we've solved that problem for you. Ron Perry has been digging clams since he was little boy. He's full of stories and will talk your ear off as he helps you bring back a "feed" of clams. Clam digging takes place at low tide and is said to be best done on the full moon because that’s when the tide is at its lowest so you can go out further. Finding the clams can be a bit tricky but they usually give themselves away. Ron will show you how to spot the tell-tale holes and circles clam siphons leave behind when they’re feeding.

The previous owners of the B&B that we were staying at organized this outing for us. Our goal was to dig for clams but we got soft shell clams, quahog clams, and oysters! We met Ron at a gas station in Summerside. Then we drove to the site which was 30 minutes away. With shovels and a bucket we set... More

We're really pleased to hear you enjoyed our Digging for Dinner experience. Ron is such a great guy and loves to share his passion for PEI. Clam digging is such an Island tradition and we're glad you got to experience it. More

We met Ron, our digger extraordinaire and off we went to dig for these little yummy, shelly, goodies. The opportunity to have someone passionate about the area, education, and life was rare. He showed our family (4 & 5 yr kids in tow) how to dig for clams and what fun! I can still giggle when they spit in your... More

For a truly authentic Island experience, you can't beat this. Although the process of booking (through www.experiencepei.ca) was very professional and well-organized, the actual event felt more like someone had hooked me up with a good friend of theirs. Ron is friendly, knowledgeable, and thoughtful, and clearly enjoys meeting people and showing them a great time. The actual digging was... More
