Fri-Sun, 7/19-21, 6:00pm Kayaking and Scalloping on the Steinhatchee River:
Payment must be received by Sat. May 18th or you will be removed from the RSVP list
Good news. Even though July has been booked solid at this point, we were fortunate to learn that two boats became available. What’s even better is that Mike and Susan, who last year showed us such gracious hospitality, are offering lodging in their home on the river and in a new house they recently purchased located just down the street. The cost per person for housing is $45.00. Each house has a king, queen, and full size bed. The beds are shared and one person will have to sleep on the floor.
Ideal Marine, owned by Jeff and Charlene, who retired after many years of running a boat rental in Steinhatchee got bored and started a new business have. They have a 24’ pontoon boat. Our other boat will be operated by the owners which will be our guide boat. This is a recent change to help guard against possible damage to the pontoon boat. Because of this our boat cost has increased $5.00 to $40.00 for the boat rental.
Snorkeling for scallops is fun and easy. You hardly need to dip your head below water to pick them up from the grass in 4’ to 5’ of water. After cleaning them when we get back, the five gallon limit is usually enough for a good meal. One of the local restaurants will cook them for us. They don’t get any fresher than that. Bring your own kayak or rent one for the trip down the Steinhatchee River. Cost for renting one is around $20. to $30. We’ll head back sometime Sunday afternoon.
