Get down and dirty and try foraging for your food along the mud flats of the estuaries. There are many varieties of shellfish, and each requires a different technique in searching them out (aside from visiting the fish markets). You can learn about the different types of shellfish that can be found in the waters of Cape Cod, the different ways of finding them in the traditional way and the rules and regulations behind sustaining our harvests year after year. Many of Cape Kayaking’s tours paddle over these shellfishing grounds, but it is only at low tide (Nauset Marsh South Trail) that we have the chance to find and possibly taste these small treasures.
Schedule a Nauset Marsh South Trail tour and be sure to inquire with your guide about shellfishing This is a great trip for kids and adults alike.
