    Come and have fun snorkeling around, looking at fish, and finding the super delicious bay scallop on our grass flats. They are super easy to find and it's like an Easter egg hunt underwater. We find the scallops in about 3-5 feet of water and all you simply have to do is swim down and pick them up. Come have a fun and relaxing day on the water with the family and kids. All snorkel gear and fins are provided.
