Aw Shucks! Don’t miss the oysters.
It’s a great time to head to Hood Canal and South Puget Sound to harvest and enjoy the bivalve bounty. Many State Parks and DNR beaches are open for public harvesting; all you need is a license, boots, bucket and a sense of adventure! Prefer to have the harvesting done for you? Pick up fresh oysters at one of the local markets or be shellfish and immerse yourself by staying at an oyster resort or visiting a farm for a tour!
Beach fresh oysters, clams, mussels and geoduck are available at locations throughout the area. Many even will help you out with a quick shucking or prepping lesson. Always remember to keep your shellfish cold. Safe handling is key to a great experience!
