The most amazing part of the trip is watching these shells swim away from you! As you search through the seagrass, these little shellfish (they are the logo for Shell gasoline) become agitated and attempt to swim away by flapping and pumping water through valves. My daughter found this absolutely hilarious!
Bay scallops are small, but extremely tasty! Within an hour we had collected a nice haul, which we cooked and ate that night. The entire trip took several hours, but was a fantastic way to spend the day! Della was fantastic!

If you have never been scalloping before, there is a great free information pamphlet put out by Citrus County and the University of Florida that can be downloaded by clicking HERE!.
Della also operates a large airboat and offers both airboat ride nature tours as well as gator hunting expeditions in season. If you really want to experience the natural beauty and excitement of Florida,
