Florida Scalloping Boat Launch Locations – With Maps
Florida Scalloping requires finding the right spot. There isn’t a “best” place. Instead, there are many great places to catch scallops in Florida. Finding the ideal location boils down to trial and error. With experience, you will find your spots or learn fruitful techniques. We like to start on a shallow reef with coral surrounded by seagrass vs. diving in seagrass. We find it easier to see the scallops. If you are on a full seagrass bed, you must have full sun; otherwise, they are difficult to spot. We also aim for shallow waters, but you will be at the mercy of the tide. Sometimes, you have to be willing to do some work. Ideally, you would be in water five feet deep or less. One other trick that never fails – follow the crowd. If boats are sitting on a spot, there are scallops there.
Here are some of the most popular locations to catch scallops, and of course, everyone has their favorite spots! Here’s a guide to all the Florida scalloping boat launch locations and the maps!
