Wasn't sure exactly what forum would be best to post a Steinhatchee question (the Steinhatchee forum doesn't seem very active) so I'm trying Cedar Key hoping that someone might be able to provide insight into scalloping. I would love to take my kids scalloping this summer and found a lovely place to stay in Steinhatchee, the problem is it seems all of the scalloping charters I find are around $300 (out of our price range). My question is, can we just scallop on our own? Do we need a guide? Is it possible to get to the scallops without a boat or just by renting a kayak? or does anyone know a guide that is less expensive?
