We know you love to scallop. We do, too! But this year our scallop population in St. Joseph Bay has declined. We aren’t seeing as many scallops as we would like.

In an effort to replenish the population we, along with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, are undertaking a massive restoration project in the Bay. Due to this effort, scallop season in St. Joseph Bay will postponed until August 22, 2016. For more information on Scalloping and FWC guidelines visit www.visitgulf.com/scalloping.

About Gulf County Florida

Located in Northwest Florida, Gulf County boasts 43 miles of natural shoreline. Here, where water surrounds us, we don’t have high-rises or busy highways and never will. We have white-sand beaches facing westward into spectacular sunsets – on the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay. We have beckoning bayous, unexpected wildlife encounters and the mysterious Dead Lakes. We’ve got seaside bike trails, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and snorkeling. We have genuine places, like the historic Indian Pass Raw Bar and flavors like Tupelo Honey. Learn more about this “no worry, no hurry” destination at www.visitgulf.com and on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
