Banana Boat Ride – A Fun Watersport To Enjoy With Family And Friends

Goa vacationers coming with their family and friends who look for a fun watersports activity should try the Banana Boat Ride. It is an inflatable boat that is shaped just like a banana and connected to a speedboat, which pulls it along the water at high speeds. Everyone riding the banana boat must hold on as tight as possible as the speedboat attempts to flip the inflatable boat thereby dropping its passengers into the water (you’d be really lucky to hold on).

The banana boat ride is a fun and exciting activity that both children and grownups can enjoy. Our banana boat in Goa can accommodate around 4 to 6 people. You don’t have to worry about your children on this ride as they are given life jackets for safety. The minimum age to ride the banana boat is above 10 years.

Atlantis Watersports boasts of having the most competitive banana boat ride rates for you, your family and friends. Be adventurous and have the most unforgettable vacation in Goa with different exciting watersports activities to choose from. Going on a banana boat ride in Goa is truly a great way to take a break from your everyday routine as it is exhilarating, fun and very safe.

Banana ride was very much exciting ride, pulling by speed boat in front by rope we 5 people including my children on banana at back trying to balance and not fall but not possible more than 20-30 seconds! Girne ka maza bhi kuch aur he hai es ride mien fir wapas banana pe climb kar jana. Instructor sahib bhi bahut helpful and hasmukh the.

I made the brave decision to get my best friends kids and mine to Goa for a holiday single handedly and was very worried when they wanted to go for the banana ride. Charlie convinced me it was safe and enjoyable, which it was. Life jackets were available in all sizes and we had a jolly time on the ride.

As a part of our corporate tour one of the activities for inculcating team spirit was the banana ride, the inflatable banana shaped tube was pulled by a jet ski and we had to balance ourselves. It was great and we all had a super fun time helping each other up! Great water sport with a good learning! Very professional staff.

My colleagues and I went on the banana ride, it was the best time we as a team have had together in while. Charlie must be congratulated for having it organized meticulously and the crew being very efficient. Life jackets are worn by all and the challenge being to keep oneself up on the banana and not fall with the waves. Great game and great time.

Ek toh yeh samundar dekh ke aankhe nahi bharte aur upar se mere salle aur saliyo ke kehne par hum banana ride par savar hue! Maza toh bahut aya parantu apne aap ko es par banaye rakhna bahut he mushkil hai kyu ke lehre ate hai aur humme gira dete hai ya kabhi age wale speed boat turant turn kar dete hai. Mazedaar hai liken yeh!

My cousins and I went bananas on this ride, being pulled by a speed boat while we try to stay on the inflatable banana. Due to lack of practice and balance we would keep falling when riding over the high waves and getting back on the banana was a big big task never the less we LOVED it and enjoyed ourselves. Cheers Atlantis!

This holiday my friends and I tried everything. Ride a banana was really fun, we were having fun like children. Gentle sea, waves and of course the banana ride helped us in obtaining bright emotions. I think this is a important type of recreation for a good mood:)
