This was a ton of fun! Chris was great working with our 2 kids (ages 8 and 10) who were quite a bit nervous about doing this. He adjusted speed and stopped when the boys were done and then the real fun began for my husband and myself! Chris was very personable and this was a fun time had by... More

1st time trip to Destin, Captain Chris and his staff made our experience well worth the trip. Picture package is well worth it. You will be amazed at the faces they catch. Looking forward to next year to do it again.

This was our favorite activity/experience in Destin! Captain Chris and his staff are amazing! They were very friendly and aimed at making this a great experience from the moment they introduced themselves. Immediately we were all laughing and joking like we were all old friends. The labeled life jackets are a nice touch. As we headed to the boat Chris... More

Chris and his crew are so fun and he wants to make sure everyone has a great time. Our 8 year old wanted to ride but didn't want to be thrown off the banana. Chris was gentle enough that she had a blast but drove fast enough that my 13 year old was able to ride the big waves. We... More

After coming to Destin every year since I was a kid, we wanted to do something different. This looked like fun for a great price, so we decided to give it a shot. First, we were treated like family instead of just customers. Secondly, my 67 year old mother rode in the boat and truly enjoyed herself. They were hilarious... More

This was my families second visit to Banana Boat Rides. My 17 and 18 year old daughters rode last year and had a blast. This year my daughters talked my 46 year old self into riding it with them. We all had a great time, Including my wife who just stayed in the boat. Captain Chris and crew are great.... More

Thanks Captain Chris for another awesome experience on the Banana Boat. This ride was as fun as the first time we went on it 2 years ago. The banana boat ride is the one experience that my kids remember when telling others about our trip to Destin. When we are back in the area, I am sure we will be... More

The Banana Boat ride was a blast! Chris and crew did a outstanding job start to finish. They made sure that you knew what to expect and delivered on it. My group ranged from 14 to 51 years old. Each person really enjoyed the ride. We were with another group that ranged from 7 to 62 years old. They vary... More
