A banana boat (or water sled), is an unpowered, inflatable recreational boat meant for towing. It was invented by Glenn Matthews in the late 1980s. Different models usually accommodate three to ten riders sitting on a larger, main tube and resting their feet on two laterally flanking tubes which stabilize the boat. The main tube is often yellow and banana-shaped. Some models have two main tubes.
Banana boats are an extremely fun and safe family activity. Banana boating is usually good value for money getting a half an hour ride for no more than 10 - 15 dollars.
