It’s Scalloping Season on Florida’s Crystal River

Submitted by on July 12, 2019 – 8:03 amNo Comment

scallopsScalloping season has begun for 2019 at Crystal River and Plantation on Crystal River, Florida. The resort offers guided and non-guided scalloping deals through September 24, 2019.

Guided scalloping package rates start at $695 for mid-week stays for two guests and include:

Two-night stay in a garden or water view deluxe room, patio room or golf villa; a guided scalloping tour including mask, snorkel and fins with one of the area’s captains; a souvenir bag with mesh scalloping bag, scallop recipes and water; chef-prepared cook-your-catch from the day’s harvest (scallops or fish) for lunch or dinner, and ramp launch, trailer storage and seawall tie for those bringing their own boats.

Rates for the unguided package begin at $350 for mid-week stays for two guests.

Scalloping is like snorkeling, but with the addition of a mesh bag for storing the harvest. Most scallops can be found in the shallow grass flats of the Gulf of Mexico that range anywhere from three to six feet deep. Only two to three inches in length and located inside a fan-shaped shell, the scallops can be easy to spot with their 30-40 bright blue eyes, but provide a good chase, since all those eyes help them detect predators. Once daily scallop limit has been reached, they can be prepared by the hotel for a cook-your-catch meal.
