Dust off that snorkel and sign up quickly! Tampa Bay Watch is recruiting 200 volunteer snorkelers to search for scallops in select areas within Boca Ciega and Lower Tampa Bay. The goal of the event is to monitor and document the health and status of the bay scallop population. Sign up fast for this free event, and help us tally up the bay scallop population in Tampa Bay!

We are only recruiting volunteers with shallow-draft boats since have already filled our spots for canoes/kayaks and volunteer snorkelers without boats.

All volunteers will need to bring your own mask and snorkel and be able to snorkel/swim 50 meters.

Registration fills up very quickly, so don’t hesitate to sign up today!
