This private banana boat tour is a blast for kids and parents, too. Gather your group of four to six people and ride out on the Destin Harbor and Gulf of Mexico on a classic banana boat—a novelty boat that’s safe and fun to ride. This private tour also includes an information session, making it a good pick for first-time riders.
What to Expect
Banana boat tours start at the shop's location along the Destin Harbor.  Once you arrive at the kiosk riders will be fit with life jackets and get all the pre-ride information done.  We ask you to arrive no less than 15 minutes prior to your reservation.  We will be on time and we want to be on the boat pulling away at your scheduled departure.

The tour will proceed from Destin Harbor and go to the Gulf of Mexico and possibly over to Crab Island depending on weather.  We have several options for various types of riders too!

Expect to be on the water for around 45-50 minutes, arriving back at the dock at 5 minutes till the next hour.  Once the tour is over your captain will walk with you back to the kiosk and you can collect any personal belongings left behind.

Absolutely the BEST banana in Destin!

From the minute we checked in to the minute we left, we were more friends than customers. They were considerate of the level of comfort of each rider. When the older ones got off they ramped it up for the teens. They really did go...More

Hey!! Six people max on 1 banana boat and we even had 2 people at one point. They are private rides...meaning only your family will be on the boat.
