Helpful Hints!


  • You’ll need a mesh bag (or two), scallop knife, and a bag/container for your catch
  • You’ll also need a scallop knife, something like this works
  • Scallops are bottom dwellers, consider being slightly negatively buoyant
  • Here’s a quick video to show you the basics of scallop shucking
  • Even in the summer, the harbor can be cold. In August 2016, the water was in the 50s (though that was seasonably cold for the area) – consider bringing at least a 7mm suit
  • Depths range from 40-60 feet, but light penetration is very good
