Clamming is a great family pastime on the Long Beach Peninsula and the counts are up. State announces 5-day dig in Late January.

Day Dig Clamming:  On Wednesday and Thursday, Clammers will be able to start digging when it is still daylight.  If you can travel mid-week, we would like to extend a very special rate to those who can come on Wednesday and Thursday of $69.00 per night for a one bedrooms suite.  This is an incredible deal with regular rates being $179.00 per night.  Dig clams and then come back to the resort, take a hot tub and then curl up next to your fireplace and relax.

 

Our One Bedrooms suites are great for families.  The rooms have a full kitchen, full living room with a fold out queen couch, a fireplace, a private bedroom with a queen bed, deck with view or ground floor patio.

 Weekend Clamming:  One bedroom Suite for $99.00 per night.  Beat the economic crunch.  Families can pack an ice chest with food and eat in your condo with your fully equipped kitchen.  Offer good through 1/31/10.

Coastal razor clam for New Years Eve and the days after approved

Time to dig into the New Year by heading to the coast for what should be an excellent razor clam dig barring any rough surf or bad weather.

Long Beach… will be open for clam digging Thursday, Dec. 31, Friday, Jan. 1 and Saturday, Jan 2. All digs will be held on evening tides, with digging restricted to the hours between noon and midnight.

“New Year’s razor clam digs are very popular,” Dan Ayres, the coastal shellfish manager for state Fish and Wildlife said in a news release. “We’re pleased that the tides allowed us to offer another holiday dig this year. For safety’s sake, make sure to check the weather and surf conditions before heading out.”

Harvesters are allowed to take no more than 15 razor clams and must keep the first 15 they dig, regardless of size or condition. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.

Additional digging dates in 2010 will be announced in January, following review of harvest data, Ayres said.
