“Hi, my name is Capt. Shane Fussell. I’m a sixth generation Floridian offering private scalloping trips out of the Crystal River/Homosassa, FL area.
I have been lucky enough to grow up on the water and scallop season was always one of my favorites. There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than hanging out with your friends and family on a boat, swimming in the beautiful Gulf waters, and bringing home fresh seafood! With a season running from late June to September, these bay scallops are not only a culinary delicacy but are also very fun to collect.
Come with me in my 18 foot Action Craft flats boat across the crystal clear flats of Crystal River, FL. We will anchor in the shallow grass flats, I’ll put up a dive flag and help to get you started in the 80-90 degree Gulf waters.
You are free to snorkel all around the boat only pausing to dive down and pick up some of the awaiting scallops. I supply all necessary licensing for a day of scalloping, mesh dive bags to collect scallops while snorkeling, a cooler full of ice to store the scallops while on the boat, and another cooler with ice for your drinks. I ask that you bring your own drinks, lunch, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and towels. You are welcome to bring a small cooler on the boat to hold your drinks and lunch. Due to sizing and preference, you may either bring your own gear or rent all of it at the local dive shop for $10 a day.”
