Overview

The original providers of Happy Clammers, Gilbert and Goldie Gillis have decided to retire but Gilbert's brother John and his wife Jackie have stepped in to take their place continuing to provide their unique clam digging experience in front of their house on the beautiful Pinette River. You'll dig your own soft-shelled and hard shelled clams (quahogs). After digging, you'll go back up to their house overlooking the river where Jackie will steam and grill the clams for you to enjoy. You're welcome to bring additional food with you...bread, cheese, wine, beer to make a full meal. The experience takes place half an hour east of Charlottetown and is offered daily Monday-Friday subject to John & Jackie's availability. All equipment needed is provided. We have some rubber boots you can use but we suggest everyone come with footwear that won't be damaged if it gets wet.
