Gear You Need For Scalloping
First, you’ll need to get a good mask and snorkel.
Try to get a mask with a black rim so that it blocks out light and you can focus on seeing the scallops.
You don’t need huge, professional fins but I would definitely suggest fins!
The most important factor with fins is that they fit you correctly.
And if you don’t snorkel much, they will tear up your feet.
So you can wear a pair of ankle socks to avoid blisters.
Don’t go scalloping without a mesh bag to hold the scallops when you catch them.
How To Find Scallops
Go to the local dive shops and ask questions about where they are being caught to give you a general area.
Then leave a little later in the morning and look for the boats on the horizon.
That’s where the scallops are!
How To Catch Scallops
You’ll dive down to pick up the scallops.
Occasionally they’ll try to swim away but they don’t swim fast!
When you need to get a breath, float up and scan the bottom for your next spot.
Typically scallops are not very deep so you should be able to pick up multiple scallops on one dive!
Scalloping is a TON of fun.
And SO deliciously rewarding!
But you must know where to find scallops, how to catch them, and what gear you’ll need if you want to be successful.
