Homosassa Crystal River Scalloping Charters
(Capt. Matt Locklear)
Homosassa and Crystal River is world famous throughout the entire U.S for our scalloping. We have a very unique ecosystem due to our three Spring-fed Rivers that pump an abundance of fresh water daily out to meet the gulf. Those rivers are the Homosassa River, Crystal River, and Chassahowitzka River. As a result of that, we have the most exquisite mangrove islands and pristine saltwater Flats unlike any other place in the world.
Scalloping is done by getting out of the boat with a mask snorkel and fins on in 3 to 6 feet of water and swimming along our beautiful shallow grass flats and simply picking up the scallops and putting them in a catch bag. When the catch bag is full take it to the captain and he will empty it in the cooler and give you the bag so you can continue with the fun. (This is the activity best knowns as the underwater Easter egg hunt.)
Scalloping is an absolute blast for all age groups and is truly one of the best ways to make memories that will last a lifetime. (Younger children who can't swim are permitted providing they get the adult supervision the require of course.)
