When we arrive at our scalloping location I will go over some basic tips for finding scallops. At that point I will pass out mask, fins, snorkel and your scalloping bag and then your off to hunt for some scallops.

The boat that you will be ridingout on is a 24foot Carolina skiff DLX. The boat is 24 feet long and 8 feet wide with lots of room to walk around and plenty of shade. The boat has a very large deck up front to sun bathe on and soak up the nice Florida sun. The boat also has a very stable ladder for easy access for getting in and out the of the water.
