My family really enjoyed the ride; however, it was advertised as a 10-15 minute ride and was actually only about 7 minutes. For $25 a person, I feel you should get a complete ride as advertised.

Extremely long time to wait

We were schedule for a Banana boat ride at 2:00PM. We were waiting until 3:35PM because they had to take care of the people that were Parasailing first. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Although the ride is short it’s such a blast! The driver was friendly and asked if we wanted to go fast or slow. We chose fast and had such a good time! Will definitely return next time we’re in Gulf Shores.

My two sons and I had a great time on the banana boat. There was a little bit of a wait but it was well worth it! The guy that was driving the jet ski was personable and really made it fun for us.

Took both boys, ages 7 & 9, and they had a blast. It was a little rough, to be expected, though.

This was our first experience on a banana boat. The ride was so much fun. I rated it a 4 because we did not know what to expect and I believe if we were given a bit more information, we would have been a bit more prepared for the amount of water that was splashed in our

Could have been better

Good day. My family and I came over to Orange Beach for a few days. We live in Mobile. We booked two of your activities for yesterday July 10. While the dolphin cruise was great, I was somewhat disappointed in the banana boat ride. It cost the same as the dolphin cruise surprisingly. First of all when we checked in, we were told to go fetch life jackets from a shed but there were none available. When I asked the attendant again she stated just to get some from other riders as they exited. The life jackets were in poor condition and smelled bad as though they are rarely cleaned. As a courtesy, when our ride was done we rinsed ours in the water. Secondly, the ride length was advertised as 15 minutes. At best we had a 10 minute ride. Likely it was even shorter. At $100 for 4, it was way overpriced. Lastly, there was only a small unsecured area to store towels and/or valuables. I limited mine to towels, key fob and a little cash for a tip which I did not leave due to the above mentioned issues. We tipped our dolphin cruise captain and crew well. I just wanted to pass along some constructive criticism. Jason Clark

Unorganized but fun

first let me say the kids had a great time on the ride. We had 4:30 reservations and got there 30 minutes before per the instructions. We completed the paperwork and got the life jackets. Since the banana boats are also used for the rides to parasailing it was confusing. Twice the kids were told they were next and then told nope sorry you gotta wait. They did not actually go until 5:15. Again they did have a good time so all in all 3 stars.

Won’t use again

Prior to scheduling, we asked how long the banana boat ride was. They said 8-9 min. We showed up 30 min prior to our booking and they took us immediately. So apparently they were ahead of schedule (they open at 9 and we were booked for 10). They took our 4 riders out for FIVE minutes. I spent $114 for FIVE minutes. Some of that time was the driver coasting them in.... They were not running behind schedule. No line behind us and they didn’t even give the kids their paid time. When I talked to the young man working there, he proceeded to ignore me. I know they are young workers, but they need to be trained properly when things don’t go as they market it. Second, the banana boat was not as pictured and was one where all guest sat in the middle. Not one we would have chose. Just an all around disappointment.

Must have patience

Paying and booking online was easy. We followed instructions only to arrive and wait in a line for those who didn’t book online. We were than directed to wait at a flag. We did and kept waiting while the workers ate meals under an umbrella. No one told us it would be 30 min or any info. I would have kept my sunglasses on and maybe hung onto a water. Anyway, finally the boat pulls up and a ton of people jump on it. They weren’t waiting with us. We get the back no problem. The guy says we can go three speeds. I literally didn’t get a spec of water on me. We do this every year. It’s suppose to be thrilling and fun and hilarious. None of that was the case for us. Poor communication and workers acted like they were doing us a favor.

Very fun attraction

The banana boat ride was a really fun boat ride. If you’re going over to gulf shores I recommend you go to the banana boat ride. A great family activity. The ride last about 10 minutes. And worth the money.
