If you are looking for something different on your next vacation in Florida, give Buccaneer Westcoast Charters a try. They offer exciting fishing trips in the Chazzahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge area.

If you don’t have the itch to fish and want to explore your options, there is a trip for you. Try scalloping!

Join Capt. Randy and his wife Debbie for a fun and productive day on the water. Enjoy searching for your dinner in the untouched and unspoiled waters. Bring your whole family and friends with you – a lot of fun is guaranteed!

The motto of the day will be “Scallop Till You Drop.” All the equipment you might need for a successful day out on the water is included. There is also snorkeling equipment available for everyone aboard – even for those who just want to take a dip in the morning waters.

Buccaneer Westcoast Charters will take you scalloping aboard their 24’ Sea ark (Flats boat) originally built in 2006, and restored in 2019. It is powered by a 150HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots and it can accommodate up to 6 passengers. 

Let your captain show you what scalloping in the Chazzahowitzka is all about and create memories that will last a lifetime!

I have been fishing hard since I was 8 years old. At 49 I decided to become a captain and to show people what I have learned in the 31 years of experience I have. I have perfected the live bait technique and my customers love it. I also lure fish and jig the flats. I have won multiple fishing tournaments with my style of fishing.
