Harvest profile

This is an excellent beach for harvesting oysters that are attached to rocks and in clusters. This beach is rocky and steep and digging is difficult. The cobble substrate supports butter clams and native littlenecks at lower tidal elevations. A wide-tined potato fork works well for digging butter clams in rocky substrates. 


Hahobas is boat access only. There is no upland access to this beach. 

The nearest boat ramp is Cushman Park. There is a fee to use the Cushman boat launch.  


None. There is a bathroom at Cushman Park. Public restrooms can also be found at Hoodsport and Potlatch State Park.
