Owner description: Mobile Sports offers the memory of a lifetime with your friends and family at an affordable cost while visiting Destin and the surrounding areas. We have been rated high on TripAdvisor for 7 years with good reason. Focusing on personal attention rather than herding riders through, we focus on you and your friends or family. Not 20 strangers. Let's see how big you can possible smile. Board our speed boat located in the Destin Harbor and take a quick tour of the harbor and East Pass as we make our way to open waters by Crab Island. Then climb onto the inflatable banana shaped tube and prepare for the most fun you can possible have. A wet and wild ride or a phenomenal tour of the beautiful Destin waters. Your choice. The crew will provide service like you have never experienced and truly care about being a positive memory for you and your friends or family. Great for all ages. High quality photos available that are great for Facebook friends. Around 50-75 HQ photos available for all riders to download. We are located on the Destin Harbor. 314 Highway 98 (Harbor Blvd). First kiosk on the dock. See you soon!

“Great Banana Boat Ride! Definitely Recommend”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Our family had two young children (ages 11 &13) who really enjoyed the Banana boat ride. Both Chris and Derek really went out of there way to make it an enjoyable experience.
We also purchased the photo package and got over 80 great shots to share with other family members and friends back home in Michigan.
Definitely would recommend this!

Yeah Michigan! (Thats from my wife).

Thanks for the great review. We truly appreciate hearing that you had a great time. We assume you did when we look back at the pictures, but this helps a lot also. Websites like this is where we find families looking for a good time on the water when it can be a varied age group. We try very hard to please everyone. And if not, we throw them overboard. That keeps out happy people alive. And alive people write good reviews. OK. The secrets out. Anyway. Thanks and please make a quick return to Destin.

Chris

“The Banana Boat ride thrills you and your kids in every way!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

The Banana Boat was a great ride for the adults and our two 10-year old boys. I thought it might be a little "too easy" for the adults - but, WOW!! This was FANTASTIC! Fun, exciting, fast and you never knew which way Chris was going to turn - so hang on! But it's great fun to fly off into the water too!
Very family friendly, and great price. The photos are awesome -- definitely worth getting.
Have a great ride!

It is so nice to see good reviews already this season. It makes me feel like what we do is working. You mentioned the photos Derick took and I am happy you have that memory of your trip here to Destin.

It aint easy pleasing 10 year old boys. They were fun though. It's always fun getting to know the families on the tour out. So it is our pleasure.

Thanks for the great review. Come back and see us soon! Summertime is coming!!!!!

“Definitely worth the money and more!”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

It was so worth it. He goes as fast or as slow as you want. He even took the time to find dolphins for us! What makes it even better he took pictures of us with a professional camera the entire time at no additional charge and they came out GREAT.

I am so glad you guys found us to hang out with for a bit. Knowing you liked the photos is important to us. So thank you for the feedback. Derick does a geat job capturing those crazy seconds in time. We had fun, and I am glad you did as well.

PS. We do charge for photos. Not a lot, but we do. Sometimes though we just have to share what we catch because it can be a great tool to keep the memory alive. That is why we have the camera. We love it. Thank you so much for the review.
