Scallop Season 2017 begins July 1st – ends September 24th. Book midweek, later in the season and you’ll experience bigger scallops and fewer crowds.
Enjoy a half day of Homosassa Scalloping on the pristine grass flats of Homosassa. Capt Don can get you there and back quickly by staying off the beaten path in his custom built 24ft Carolina Skiff powered by 150hp Evinrude E-Tech.
All licenses are furnished. You will need to bring a mask, snorkel and fins and a cooler with any food and beverages that you would like for the day. Capt. Don will show you how to clean scallops, but part of the experience is cleaning your own catch. For those that would like to have local entrepreneurs “clean your catch” Capt. Don can steer you in the right direction.
