About The Event
Crystal River is one of the premier areas for recreational scalloping. Search the sea grass beds of the shallow Gulf for these tasty morsels. It’s an underwater game of hide and seek. Use your masks, fins, and snorkels to “hunt” the scallops, pick them up and place them in your bag. Remember they swim up or backwards when they sense danger (you).
We will spend over 4 hours floating around the sea grass beds for scallops. You can look for their “blue eyes”. You’ll dive down and grab them before they get away. Have a blast and bring home dinner too.
Crystal River Watersports will provide the saltwater license for the whole group. We will have 2-3 boats of about 6 people on each trip. All boats are private. Each boat can bring back a maximum of 10 gallons of scallops in shell or ½ gallon of scallop meat.
Space is limited so don't wait! Don't forget the camera either!
Register now or call us for details! Sorry, only paid spots can be held due to limited space.
