Have you heard of the term clamming? Sometimes when our clients are visiting for their first time, we are frequently asked what is the best season and weather for clam hunting.

“Clam hunting or digging is a North American term for a common way to harvest clams (edible in faunal bivalve mollusks) from below the surface of the tidal sand flats or mud flats where they live. It is done both recreationally and commercially. Commercial digging in the U.S. and Canada is colloquially referred to as clamming, and is done by a clammer”.[1]

Many travelers visit Rocky Point for it’s beautiful beaches. The area is well known for its extreme tidal movements. The tidal cycle during some New and Full Moons can produce a vertical change in the sea level of up to 24 to 26 feet. This is said to be the second largest vertical tidal change in the world. Such extreme movement in the water level produces enormous tidal flats. This extreme tide change, specially in a bay like at Laguna Shores, provides great opportunities to harvest an abundance of bivalves of the Venus Family, or in simple language “Clams”.

The best season for this activity in Rocky Point is from October until January, cooler weather makes the clams come closer to the edge of the shore.

People use different popular method for bay clamming is the use of specialized tongs from a boat.
