About This Experience

Roll up your pants and starting digging for clams on the shores of Clam Harbour! 

Your clam digging adventure begins at Memory Lane Heritage Village, where you will be introduced to the heritage of clam digging on the Eastern Shore. Next, you will meet your guide, Darcy Baker, a fourth generation clam digger. Darcy will guide you to the mud flats of Clam Harbour where he will show you how to use a clam fork to dig white, soft-shelled clams. Learn about the clams and their habitat, techniques for harvesting and how this industry has changed over the years.

Once you have finished “clamming”, return to the Heritage Village to enjoy a “feed” of steamed clams in the comfort of the Cookhouse, along with a traditional meal of baked beans, soup, brown bread and gingerbread for dessert. Your adventure includes a self-guided tour of Memory Lane Heritage Village and a chance to see the harvesting tools used during the 1940s, when clam factories were an important part of the local economy.
