It just doesn't get any better than scalloping on the Nature Coast. Snorkeling in search of scallops in the normally crystal clear temperate waters of the Gulf of Mexico off Hernando is an enjoyable way to spend time with family and friends. Viewed by many as being an adult style Easter egg hunt, scalloping offers beautiful sights of undisturbed marine life including fish, crabs, and various sponges and corals; all while collecting a tasty meal.
