Surrounded by lakes, rivers and the natural springs of King’s Bay, the Plantation on Crystal River is a haven for relaxation, offering 27 holes of golf, an Aveda spa, full-service marina and riverfront pool. As far as activities, it offers many—and with scalloping season approaching, the property has debuted a seasonal Scalloping package to get families into the water for some good fishing fun.

Scalloping packages include 2-night accommodations in a waterview, garden or golf villa; full American breakfast with beverage daily, and one Plantation on Crystal River souvenir bag with scallop recipes, mesh scalloping bag, sunscreen, insect repellant and bottle of water. After their scalloping adventure, the chefs of on-property dining venue West 82 Bar & Grill will prepare your client’s catch—either scallops or fish—and serve it with two sides. In addition, guests bringing their own boat will enjoy free ramp launch, trailer storage and seawall tie.

Scalloping season runs July 1-Sept. 10. On-your-own Scalloping package rates start at $119 pp during the week or $149 pp on weekends, while professionally guided Scalloping package rates—plus mask, snorkel and fin rental—start at $249 pp during the week or $299 pp on weekends.
