4927 U.S. Highway 19, New Port Richey, FL 34652 - FREE PARKING! Open 9 am to 5 pm.
Bring your own drinks, you have a designated driver! Your professional licensed captain will drive you to beautiful islands where you can go shelling, play games on the beach and view the wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico. Includes 5 gallons fuel - enough to get to island and back. Additional touring extra fuel charge.
PLEASE NOTE THAT CHILDREN OF ANY SIZE ARE COUNTED AS PART OF THE PEOPLE MAXIMUM.
If you have 7 or more people, you can still go out with a captain, but instead of a fully inclusive charter rate, you would instead rent the boat of your choice for the regular rental rate and then add a captain for an additional $25 per hour. This fee is then paid directly to the captain in cash. Our pontoon boats are licensed for a maximum of 12 passengers.

Treat yourself to a beach BBQ on one of our beautiful islands - a great addition to your THREE QUARTER OR FULL DAY CHARTER. Not available on half day or sunset charter. It's intimate, fun, tasty and very affordable. The captain will sail you out to the island. Your personal area on the beach will already be set up by our island crew - beach chairs, shade cover, sun umbrellas, table - all ready and waiting for you to arrive.
Our chef will cook your BBQ meal right in front of you on the beach - we're pretty fussy because we also have to eat what's cooked, so you know your meal is going to be fantastic! You do absolutely nothing except show up, eat, drink and be merry!
Rates start at $250 with several menu choices.
SCALLOPING IN PASCO COUNTY IS ONLY AVAILABLE FROM JULY 20 - 29 IN 2018! BOOK NOW!!
This the first time since 1994 that scalloping has been permitted this close to Tampa. We are only a 40 minute drive from Downtown Tampa / Clearwater Beach. The Florida bay scallop grows and lives in the shallow (4 to 10 feet deep) seagrass beds that are common in our area.
Florida residents between the ages of 16 and 65 must have a current Florida saltwater fishing license to collect scallops. All non-residents over the age of 16 will need a saltwater fishing license. This can be purchased over the phone (888-fish-florida) or online (myfwc.com).
You can rent a pontoon boat from us to go scalloping and drive yourself, but we HIGHLY recomend choosing one of the captained packages above as our captains know where the best scalloping areas are! Also, some of the BEST scalloping is in areas where we do not permit self drive pontoons due to dangerous rocks and shoals. Our captains know the scalloping area very well and can avoid these dangers.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED TO GO SCALLOPING?
You will need a mask, snorkel, fins and a mesh bag in which to harvest your scallops. Gloves are optional as scallops do not bite. You can either bring your own scalloping gear or rent a set from Windsong for only $7.00. You will also need a bucket or container in order to measure your catch. Daily Bag Limit: 2 gallons whole bay scallops in shell, or 1 pint of bay scallop meat per person.
