Board our speed boat located in the Destin Harbor and take a quick tour of the harbor and East Pass as we make our way to open waters by Crab Island. Then climb onto the inflatable banana shaped tube and prepare for the most fun you can possible have. A wet and wild ride or a phenomenal tour of the beautiful Destin waters. Your choice. The crew will provide service like you have never experienced and truly care about being a positive memory for you and your friends or family. Great for all ages. High quality photos available that are great for Facebook friends. Around 50-75 HQ photos available for all riders to download. We are located on the Destin Harbor. 314 Highway 98 (Harbor Blvd).

Great activity for families! The owner/captain (Chris) was terrific. Easy reservation process. Relaxing boat ride in and out including dolphin watching. Exhilarating banana boat ride. Kids can control faster or slower during ride. Highly recommend photo package. Great memories!

Mobile Sports Banana Boat rides are amazing. I went twice with a group of four and we all laughed the entire time. We have gone once in the Gulf and once in the bay and saw dolphins both times! The driver and photographer are both hilarious and really make the experience note worthy. Will continue to do this every year... More

One of the best services around! From beginning to end, the entire experience was fabulous. Misty was terrific on the phone, passionately describing the process & answering all of our questions. Corrina was lovely when checking us in & snapping hundreds of photos on-board (mature & talented beyond her years.) Chris was the perfect captain: welcoming, funny, safety-conscious, social, flexible,... More

Joanne. This was one of those reviews that I got to share with my daughter and wife and see thems mile. They, just as I, love to know we touched someone. The fact that we had 11 people and still made you all feel special is great! In fact, it is our MO. Everyone is unique and we are aware... More

The staff and crew worked to make this an awesome experience. They were friendly, professional, and provided us with personal service. I have enjoyed water sports in Hawaii and the Caribbean,but this was the best overall experience....I highly recommend this group.

A banana boat ride is the one thing our daughter wanted to do during our recent trip to Destin. We had a blast! The trip was well-organized and easy to book. The staff was wonderful. It seemed like a real family oriented organization, down to the dog that serves as the first mate! I didn't think I would want the... More
