Homosassa is located on the gulf coast of central Florida and sits on the bank of the Homosassa River. The Homosassa River is a spring fed river that meanders west to the Homosassa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida Bay Scallops are found in seagrass beds along the state’s west and northwest coasts. Scallops are a popular catch in hot summer months, and thanks to recent restoration efforts, portions of the west coast which were once closed for harvesting are open again. With access to a boat and some basic snorkeling gear, you can “jump right in” for your catch and look forward to a tasty, fresh dinner in the evening.
