Clams move with their foot. Their foot has to be muscular to help them move a good bit of a distance. Sometimes they can move an extreme distance if the current is strong. The currents can also help clams move.
Examples:
mussels and clams

    The clam sorta burrows its 'foot' (body) out of the shell and into the sandy bottom and pushes itself in a forward motion. It uses the current in waters to carry it along.
