Focusing on personal attention rather than hurdling riders through, we focus on you and your friends or family. Not 20 strangers. Let's see how big you can possible smile. 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).

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

We had an awesome time during this ride! All the personnel in Mobilesports LLC (including Captain Chris, of course) was extremely friendly and made the whole experience a success. I have to admit that I was dubitative about going to this ride, but believe me, it's worth it, don't hesitate! My two teenage boys and my wife had a wonderful... More

This is definitely a must do if you plan to visit Destin. The Captain (Chris) and his first mate (his daughter) were super friendly and awesome. The pictures they took were amazing and was well worth every penny. It was an unforgetablle experience and we will be back again. Thank you Mobilesports

Had an awesome time. Loved the fact that they have a power boat pulling you instead of a jet ski that a lot of places use. Yes they are a bit more expensive but it is worth it. Also they only take your party out so you will never be with strangers which is great. It's a great boat ride... More

Chris and his daughter were absolutely lovely. Friendly, accommodating, professional, and lots of fun! The best part is the fact that only your party is on the boat, so you aren't fighting with a bunch of strangers for a turn. I purchased the photo package, and can't wait to see how they turn out. I'm so thankful for this experience!... More

The person I scheduled the reservation with obviously schedule us for the wrong day. I had events planned every day we were in Destin. I would not have picked the day he says we scheduled for. He charged my credit card for the full $250 and offer to "reschedule" our appointment for the day that I had planned it all... More

This is absurd. This reservation was mad by the customer through our online website. They were emailed a confirmation after booking that clearly states the day of the trip. We contacted them and they said they have another activity scheduled. It wasn't an error our staff made with a reservation as it was booked directly online. They put in all... More
