Scalloping Season July 1 - Sept 24

Now - September 24, 2015
WHEN: JULY 1 - SEPT 24 WHO: The Plantation on Crystal River - a hidden gem along Florida's Nature Coast, just 80 miles north of Tampa. WHAT: Searching for scallops is a favorite Florida pastime, and the Plantation on Crystal River invites scallop seekers to come hunt for this delicious treasure. This summer, the newly-renovated property is offering two unique package options - one with a guide and one without - both packed with a bag full of value with prices starting at just $249 per person*! The scalloping package includes: • Two-night stay in a renovated water view or golf villa • Guided scalloping tour including mask, sno ...Read More>> kel and fins with one of the area's top captains • Souvenir bag with mesh scalloping bag, scallop recipes, sunscreen and water • Chef will prepare the fresh day's harvest (scallops or fish) and serve with two sides • Breakfast daily • Ramp launch, trailer storage and seawall tie for those bringing their own boat A popular activity for families, scalloping is like snorkeling, but with the simple addition of a mesh bag for storing the harvest. Most scallops can be found in the shallow grass flats of the Gulf of Mexico that range anywhere from three to six feet deep. Only two to three inches in length and located inside a fan-shaped shell, the scallops can be easy to spot with their 30-40 bright blue eyes, but provide a good chase, since all those eyes help them detect predators. WHEN: Scalloping season runs July 1 through September 24, 2013. WHERE: The eco-friendly Plantation on Crystal River is surrounded by the natural springs of King's Bay and pristine lakes and rivers, as well as wildlife refuges and state parks. On site, the Plantation features a full-service marina, 18-hole golf course, 9-hole executive course, Aveda spa, delectable dining and inviting accommodations. Guests have the unique opportunity to swim with the manatees, rent a pontoon or Jon boat, relax by the riverfront pool, enjoy a game of croquet on the manicured lawn, or hire a guided fishing charter. With more than 1,600 feet of seawall, overnight guests can tie up their boats at any of over 80 spaces.
