Your Scallop Season Boat Rental Awaits – No Experience Required!

Florida’s warm water and salty oceans combined with good visibility provide the best conditions for a great scalloping season. Those looking to go scalloping along the Florida coastline and need a helping hand can find the perfect scallop season boat rental with a captain in locations like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Tampa and more.

“At Boatsetter, we want everyone to be able to get out on the water and enjoy scalloping season this year,” said Pablo Vidal, chief marketing officer of “We are here to connect our boat owners and fleet of captains, who have the needed knowledge, to anyone interested in scalloping. All you have to do is search our site, connect with the boat you want and set sail for an unforgettable adventure with friends.”

Boaters may wish to enjoy a weekend on the water while scalloping with friends aboard a boat listed on Boatsetter like the Seatime, a 39-foot Sealine, sleeping up to six people. This boat will provide a great weekend experience and is located just south of one of the best scalloping spots in all of Florida.

Sea scallops in previous years have been depleted making it tougher to locate, but according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Florida Gulf Coast is seeing a high trend in recovery, back to the levels once seen in the 1990s.

Boatsetter recommends reserving a boat with a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain, and before getting underway, to have all boaters file a float plan with a family member or friend, have all of the proper and required safety equipment, wear their life jackets and never operate a vessel under the influence of alcohol or another substance.
