There are two different Myrtle Beach banana boat rides: the double banana that does not tip and the single banana which is much more popular and requires some balance, but it's a lot of fun.
The main tube is yellow banana shaped is towed behind the jet ski or the boat with 6-10 passengers.
You will go couple of miles to the ocean and then the driver attempts to flip the banana boat by doing sharp turns, so hang on or you will get wet:) , all riders should wear life jackets for safety reasons. The price for this water attraction is around $17 per person for about 15 minutes of riding.
