Sand N Spur Scalloping

If you don’t feel like fishing but have the itch to be on the water, give Sand N Spur Scalloping a try. This family-friendly company specializes in private and customized scalloping trips around the Forgotten Coast.

Join Captain Daniel in Port Saint Joe to explore its world-renowned seagrass beds and shallow waters. Enjoy the thrill of catching your own scallops and experienced all the beauty the Forgotten Coast has to offer.

Capt. Daniel enjoys teaching swimmers of all ages how to free dive and snorkel for scallops. He begins his season in mid-August and it goes through September.

You will be able to see the Gulf Coast like never before aboard a 22’ Bentley pontoon boat. With plenty of space for up to 6 passengers, this boat is ideal for a family outing. It comes powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine and is rigged with everything you need for a successful day on the water.

Hop onboard and discover starfish, horseshoe crabs, sand dollars, rays, dolphins, turtles, seahorses, and many other underwater creatures. All masks, fins, and snorkels are available in various sizes. Complimentary ice-cold water will be provided for you and your party. Just grab your sunscreen and a towel and enjoy the adventure!
