Banana Boat Ride


Get some mates and come along for an exhilarating experience like no other!!! Make sure you are holding on tight as you drift and skip behind our Jet Ski, all while exploring the waters of Lake Wanaka.

Hop on board a banana boat for an ultra-fun and adventurous experience. You'll bump and bounce across Lake Wanaka's Roys Bay at high speeds. While you laugh with your family and friends, you'll also take in the beautiful view of Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains.

This unique experience will add a special and memorable experience to your holiday and you'll definitely have something to tell your friends about!

The huge banana-shaped inflatable has a capacity of up to twelve people. Come prepared to get wet, our staff will ensure you are fitted with a lifejacket and provide you with a short safety briefing before you start your voyage.

If you are looking for a spontaneous activity that is fun for everyone, this is for you!
