Each summer, thousands of locals and visitors flock to the west coast of Florida for some of the world’s best scalloping. Harvesting bay scallops is a great family fun activity that everyone can enjoy. Scallop season runs until late September and is a great way to take it outside and enjoy our beaches and pristine waters.
Scalloping usually is done in shallow waters about 4 to 6 feet while snorkeling on top. Keep a sharp eye out for those saltwater treats of the sea, swim down quickly grab them and to add to your scallop bag.
