Scallop season starts next month! So do yourself a favor and go enjoy this Florida activity that’s fun for the whole family. All you need is a boat, know someone with a boat, (or rent one) a mask & snorkel, flippers and a mesh bag to put your scallops in. Some of the places you can scallop are only a short drive away from the Tampa Bay area. Florida Fish and Wildlife has a map showing all locations where you can go and the dates showing when scallop season starts and ends. My families favorite place to go scalloping is Homosassa. In Homosassa there’s plenty of great restaurants to choose from, you can hang out in the fresh water spring, and no other place has Monkey Island.
Here’s my Top 5 restaurants to check out in Homosassa:
