Scalloping Plan and Activities:
We leave and arrive at the dock at the scheduled times. There are two trips a day unless we are booked for a Yacht Class All Day Scalloping Charter (See Charter Services Tab.) We travel for 30 minutes to the Crystal River Scallop grounds. Average daily depth will be 3-4 Feet but 5-6 Feet is common. The captain and/or crew will guide and teach you the process of scalloping. It is recommended that you review YOUTUBE videos prior to arriving if you are a first timer. We are experts at this so no worries, we will find them for you. We will scallop the entire time. You will also have time to lounge in the sun and take in the environment. Cleaning scallops is part of the experience and those who choose to learn and help out are welcome but not required to do so. We have everything covered so bring your smile, camera and snorkeling gear and have a great time.
