Prince Edward Island - clam digging and cooking

As a visitor to PEI, you can do more than just witness the Island way of life. You can live it, too. Real experiences. Simple pleasures. Being active and relaxed at the same time. Any island is its own unique world. Stories, music, recipes, and skills are preserved and passed down for generations. But here you're welcome to take part, and take home some of their traditions. Islanders are eager to help. In an ever-growing series of activities, you can work side-by-side with chefs, artisans, fishermen, farmers, musicians, and a host of people who defy categorizing, but who love what they do and want to share it with you.
One of these is clam digging. As the tide goes out, just reach for a spade and a bucket and find someone who can show where to dig and how to cook them. Yes, you might get your hands dirty. You might also get your shoes wet. And your knees stained. All temporary. But the memory of your Island experiences will last a lifetime.
So what else is out there? There are many advantages to a small island, especially this one. The land here is rich, producing a bounty of fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy products. The waters teem with fish, as well as lobster, oysters, and other shellfish. Ask almost anyone in the world where the best mussels come from, and they'll tell you: Prince Edward Island. And because the distance between any two points on the Island is small, food doesn't have to travel far from source to plate. Our farmers and fishermen provide the ingredients and our award-winning chefs turn those fresh ingredients into culinary masterpieces.
