Banana Boat Ride: Let’s start with baby steps and what better way to start your adventure journey in Andamans than taking a banana boat ride. As the name suggests, the ride is shaped like a banana and can seat as many as six people. The boat is tied behind a speedboat, to gain initial speed while you take a little ride in the waters. And just when you feel that you seem to have wasted your money and time on a boring ride, the instructor upturns the banana boat, toppling you into the sea near the shore. Every rider wears a life jacket, so you can enjoy this super-fun water sport even if you are a non-swimmer. Super Excited to have this ride?? Click here to see awesome packages custom-made for you!
