Park your car and walk out on the dock to catch a glimpse of Rocky Creek. This creek leads to the second-largest continuous area of seagrasses in the eastern Gulf, making it one of the most pristine places in the Big Bend region of Florida. In the small village of Jena, bay scallops used to support a commercial fishery but now are only harvested recreationally, where healthy seagrass beds still support abundant scallops. Bring your own boat or hire a local charter for a fun-filled day of snorkeling and catching scallops. Read the kiosk panel for more information about this popular recreational fishery.
