Scalloping in Crystal River is the perfect family getaway because it’s easy, everyone can do it, and the area offers so much.
One thing I love about scalloping in Crystal River is that it’s very easy. You don’t need dive gear, certifications or fancy equipment. You also don’t need to be able to hold your breath forever or dive deep depths. All you need is snorkeling gear and a mesh bag to place the scallops in. Literally, it’s like a scavenger hunt or Easter egg hunt. You simply scan the sea grass beds looking for scallops.

In my experience, these are the 10 most scenic coastal drives in Florida. If you like water and nature, these 10 drives are for you.
COASTAL DRIVES DEFINED
I define “coastal drives” as long stretches of road where you can see lots of open ocean, estuaries or bays. Coastal drives tend to include an unspoiled, natural components, and they often also include lots of tropical foliage. Finally, they don’t have to be long roads, although most are. Some roads can be traveled in minutes and others in hours or days.
