On July 1st 2017 the scalloping season here in Homosassa, Florida get's underway. Local scouting is showing another promising season is on the horizon, and as with nearly all of the companies running charter boats out here, we are booking fast!
We've been steadily prepping for the 2017 season since early in June, and though we have taken many reservations, we do have spots left scattered throughout the remainder of the season (we also have multiple boats available). If you have never scalloped before, Southern Slam Outfitters has been at it for years, and we pride ourselves on the expertise we offer on our family friendly trips. Summer gets hot and spending a relaxing day in the crystal clear waters of Homosassa is definitely one of the best ways to enjoy it.
If you are curious about what a scalloping trip will entail, we are going to explain that a bit here. The Captain here at Southern Slam Outfitters, Carey Gibson, will take you right to the scalloping grounds on his comfortable charter boat. From here, the guest will get their masks and snorkels on, and hop into this epic shallow water estuary. Once in the water, guest are able to start looking for scallops! It's sort of like a treasure hunt, but with a tasty morel being the prize. Everyone relaxes and has a good time, and the next thing you will know is that your whole group will be at their legal limit of scallops!
Southern Slam Outfitter can also offer some other cool excursions if you are planning on being around Homosassa for a few days. We offer great local inshore fishing charters, and we even have a private island available for rent! So, if you have a minute, feel free to explore all of our options. However, if you came here to get a scalloping trip squared away, I'd go ahead and start that ball rolling, as mentioned - these fill fast! Reserve Here.
