May 17 21:03 2024

Summer on Florida’s Adventure Coast, Brooksville-Weeki Wachee means spending time on and in the water, whether kayaking, boating, or diving into Florida’s amazing springs and coastal waters. For those who seek the perfect summer getaway in spending time out on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, boating, snorkeling, and enjoying some tasty seafood – Scalloping is the ideal choice!

Florida’s annual bay scallop harvest season runs from July 1 through September 24 on Florida’s Adventure Coast. A fun activity for kids and adults alike; scallop diving is like an underwater treasure hunt, where visitors snorkel and dive in search of the tasty mollusks. All that is needed is a mask, snorkel, fins, and a mesh bag to collect the catch.

Scalloping on Florida’s Adventure Coast

For a hassle-free day, hire a local charter guide who will furnish a fishing license and gear. Visitors can simply show up at the appointed time and place to meet the boat captain. Bring water, sunscreen, some lunch, and snacks on board. Also, be sure to bring a cooler with ice to take the catch.

After a day of scalloping, visitors can cook the catch at their rental or take it to a local restaurant that offers “catch ’n’ cook” and they’ll prepare it. Nothing beats the freshness and flavor of scallops caught firsthand!


Turn the scalloping trip into a weekend getaway! Facing the Gulf of Mexico, Hernando Beach is a coastal community with vibrant murals and small-town charm. A launchpad for scalloping and boating on the Gulf, visitors can stay at one of the nearby cozy hotels or vacation rentals, dine at local restaurants, or visit nearby attractions like Weeki Wachee Springs State Park. Other hidden gems nearby include NJoy, Marker 48, and The Mermaid Tale Trail, featuring life-sized mermaid statues.
