Looking for a fun water sports activity that everyone in your family and friends can enjoy? Try out banana boats! Banana boat rides are a fantastic way to have a unique and entertaining seaside excursion when you are on RockyPoint, don't miss the opportunity to take this ride over the coastline.
A banana boat is an inflatable boat made of PVC plastic or Hypalon Neoprene invented by Glenn Matthews in the late 1980s, usually made to be towed. The many sizes and styles of this boat typically seat 3 to 10 passengers in a huge central tube, with their feet resting on two side tubes that steady the boat. This construction allows you to enjoy the pleasure of moving quickly and close to the water in a way that is much easier and safer than water skiing or surfing. Throughout the ride, the motorist of the boat tries to turn the banana boat upside down when making sharp turns as a result, kids love it! Of course, all passengers must wear a life jacket for safety reasons.
This adventure is suitable for people of all ages, from little toddlers accompanied by an adult to young adults and even grandparents. It is an activity for everyone, and the best part is that it is inexpensive! So it's worth it to any person who enjoys spending a wonderful day in the sun cruising the Sea of Cortez. Don't hesitate to ask for them during your stay in any of our properties at Sandy beach! Our concierges will be happy to help you in our Casago check-in offices.
