Yeah, some knee-high rubber boots would be good. I've done it in hiking boots, but I was pretty muddy and damp by the end of the day. Dress warmly too, even if it's sunny. That wind can pack quite a chill coming off of Cook Inlet.
All you need to do is look for the little dimples in the mud. That signifies that a clam is underneath - anywhere from a few inches to a few feet down. Dig like crazy, and then shove your hand in there and feel around. Sometimes you'll get ahold of the edge of their shell and they'll actually pull out of your grip...but that's what makes it fun. The closer you get to the water the more clams you'll find, but they're all over out there.
(Oh yeah, make sure you have your fishing license and ID. They do check down there sometimes.)
