National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Good location for tide table information. Be sure and select the correct tide tables, sometimes it’s hard to know which one is best. For example if you pick the Seaside Table data comes from the Necanicum river at 12th street, which is an hour later then the ocean tide. Our data came from NOAA Columbia River Washington North Jetty Tide table. The Beach at Seaside is about 8 minutes earlier then stated. Long Beach is about 10 minutes later. Beach Washington.

Long Beach Washington Clam Festival

In 1940, Wellington Marsh, Sr., and the people of Long Beach organized the first of many Clam Festivals. Consequently, thousands of visitors came out to the beach, dug their clams, enjoyed the delicious clam chowder, and sampled the “World’s Largest Clam Fritter”. Probably made in the “World’s Largest Frying Pan.’” Find Information for 2020 here.
