Boracay Island Banana Boat Group Ride
Experience zooming across Boracay Island's pristine waters while riding a banana boat with this group activity good for 5 or more people. This exciting tour will give you a rush of adrenaline, making it the ideal activity for adventurous groups of friends or families. You will be brought to the designated area for banana boat riding with use of life vests, and service of an English-speaking guide.
On the day of your tour, make your way to Astoria Hotel's beachfront along Station 1 to meet up with your guide for the activity. From there, you will hop aboard a speedboat, and your guide will take you straight to a platform in the area for banana boat riding. When you step foot on the platform, your guide will first brief you on the safety rules to ensure you don't get into any unwanted accidents.
Afterward, you will put on your life vests and board the boat. The banana boat is a banana-shaped yellow inflatable that is connected to a speedboat using a sturdy rope. The speedboat will then race across the sea while tugging your boat along, making your banana boat bob above the waves throughout the activity.
Make sure to hold on tight before asking the speedboat driver tugging your banana boat to start the activity. When you're ready, the assigned driver will quickly start accelerating. Brace yourself for the splashes of saltwater as your banana boat zips on the water. The ride's main draw is to tip over and send some of you flying off the banana boat, so don't be surprised if you lose your grip and find yourself in the sea! This is completely safe and part of the fun.
After 15 minutes, you will be brought back to the starting point.
