Air boating around Keaton beach

Any good riding around perry fl area? My buddy here in Ga has a beach house on Keaton beach and has invited my family on a short notice for Memorial Day weekend trip down there and I thought maybe pulling the airboat down and doing some riding since I havnt put it in the water in two years :(

We hear that area is GREAT for scalloping.
Scallop season starts July 1 and runs until September 14.
The area from Crystal River and on north around the "Big Bend'
is about the only area where they still allow scalloping to be done.

Maybe some of the guys who do that will chime in and
give more specifics.

keaton is great .. i have a house there and will be riding this wknd . hagans cove has 2 boat ramps ,, 1 one right on the water and another 1 to the right just before you enter park ,, thats where most of the airboats unload ... there are several trails across the pine islands that stick out from the mainland ... alot of creeks and at high tide you can ride all the way up to the tree line. big grassy island is a nice spot to swim and have a few ,, but can get really crowded late in the day.. you will have to run some deep water if you dont stay close to the grass ..
