We had an excellent experience scalloping with Captain Garrett. Although finding the scallops required some perseverance, it was a lot of fun. The captain clean our catch right on the boat & took us to a fresh water spring area on the way back👌

We had great time scalloping. We would use this charter again. I like that they only do one trip a day because you don’t feel rushed. We didn’t get a huge amount of scallops but that had more to do with our hunting ability.

Captain Garrett and his pontoon were the perfect pair for our first scalloping trip. He explained the method to catch a scallop, had bags for the scallops we found, cleaned them, and was very knowledgeable on the sport and area. We will be back!!!

Thank you for the question. No it is not against the law as long as it is done in accordance to the federal guidelines. They state that you can touch a manatee with 1 open hand if the animal approaches you.
