Homosassa and Crystal River Scalloping Trips
There’s no better way to beat the heat during the summer months than to go on a Homosassa scallop charter! This unique adventure includes so many fun things to do. Snorkeling for scallops, taking a scenic river tour, seeing wild animals, and then ending the day swimming in the cool freshwater Homosassa springs.
The day starts around 8 am with a scenic river cruise on our way out to the scalloping grounds. Once we hit the first scallop hot spot, we’ll throw on our snorkeling gear and jump in. The flats we’ll be on typically have very clear water and great visibility. Once in the water, you’ll be searching the bottom for those tasty scallops. When you see some, dive down, grab ’em and throw ’em in your bag. It’s that easy!
After we’ve gathered our scallops, we’ll make a reverse trip back up the river towards Homosassa’s freshwater springs. On the way there we’ll stop and see the monkeys that reside on an island in the middle of the river and we’ll probably see dolphins, ospreys, and maybe even some manatees.
When we get to the springs, you’ll be amazed at the electric blue color of the water and even more amazed at how cool and refreshing it is to swim in. There’s no better day to end a scallop charter than being refreshed by the cool, fresh water of Homosassa Springs.
When we get back to the dock, the scallops will be cleaned and ready for you to take home and make a great meal.
