Who knew the process for finding, digging, measuring, and harvesting oysters? Not one person on our cruise excursion, that's for sure. Now we all do. This family is so sweet and opens their home to all who visit. John has a boat hiked up in the yard to show us how the process works. He offers to let us try (uh-oh, too heavy!). Then the yummy part: we get to eat as many super fresh oysters as we can, accompanied by delicious condiments and drinks. What a special treat.

It's been over a month since we returned from our east coast seafood tour and we can't stop talking about our Happy Clammers PEI Experience. We had a fantastic time, this was definitely the highlight of our trip. John and Jackie welcomed us to their home and served us succulent clams and oysters fresh from the sea. We highly recommend this experience, especially for those seafood lovers out there!

My children are not exactly the outdoorsy kind. Their ideal kind of vacation would be to lie in bed and watch TV in a hotel room. However, whenever I bring up our trip experience in the East Coast, they would always say "Happy Clammer" as their number one favourite. As for me, nothing can top eating raw oysters right at the source!

John and Jackie are wonderful people who are both knowledgeable and passionate in what they do. I would definitely go back in the future.

We had a wonderful afternoon learning how to dig up clams and eating them afterwards! John also taught us about oysters and was shucking them with the meal. John and Jackie were so kind and welcoming, especially with our kids. Our kids (ages 11,9,6) said that the Happy Clammers Experience was their favourite part of our PEI vacation. We would definitely recommend this experience to anyone! Thanks again, John & Jackie!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Happy Clammers experience with John. We learned so much about clams, quahogs and oysters. John is very knowledgeable and patient with children. We also enjoyed a feast of all of these goodies after digging and it was delicious! If you are travelling to PEI, this experience is a must! We missed meeting Jackie but John was an excellent host without his first mate! This will be a highlight of our East Coast adventure for many years to come!
