Private Scallop Adventure

Private Scallop Adventure

Florida’s bay scallops occur in isolated populations scattered along its west coast, and the majority are found in near shore sea grass beds from Tarpon Springs in Pinellas County to Port St. Joe in Gulf County. Our captains have the local knowledge necessary to help you have a successful trip. Scallops are typically found in 4-6 feet of water, and are camouflaged nicely to blend into the sea grass beds. Finding them is a little like an underwater Easter egg hunt, and once you develop an "eye" many of our trips will gather their limit in a couple of hours. However, Bay scallops are capable of swimming by opening and closing their shells rapidly to generate thrust, which can make catching them more challenging…but also means they move! Early season guests will find more success as the later in the season, the scallop "pickings" can be more challenging.
