I've seen several Banana Boat Floats zipping around Destin and wanted to go for a ride as soon as I saw them.
To my surprise, the shuttle out to the parasailing boat was just
that – a Banana Boat Float pulled by a jet ski.
Having just had major oral surgery a week before I was a little
nervous that we would get pounded by the waves. I've pretty much
recovered from the surgery but my mouth was still a little tender and
I didn't want to go home with a throbbing jaw.
Interestingly, the banana jumps right over the waves but the landing isn't bad. There was no pounding or slamming, we were just riding
I really enjoyed it and plan to visit The Original Banana Boat to take a longer ride soon.
And isn't riding a Banana Float through the Gulf of Mexico what
life is really all about?
