    Banana boat is pulled by a jet ski in the bay of Miami, even when conditions are very choppy. My instructor didn’t speak English and my group doesn’t understand Spanish very well. It was clear that his goal was to flip the banana boat and our goal was to counter-balance his

    Hello Daniel! Thank you for your review but we would like to point out a couple of points. In case of the choppy weather we always offer the opportunity to reschedule the trip, no questions asked. You have the whistle on the life jacket which you can use when you flip over. There is no need to panic and be vocal when you flip over. In fact it can scare some of the other customers and cause more unnecessary panic. The captain has mirrors (and yes you will flip over which is mentioned before you book, in the office and before you sign a waiver. We also mention many times other safety procedures. Injuries can happen if those procedures are not followed. The captain can return back to shore at minimum wake if you feel uncomfortable at any time. Jet Boat Miami Team

    The event has been inactive for a month but they are still booking it through trip advisor. When we called them to ask about locker that is when we got to know that the event is no longer happening. They didn't have the courtesy to say sorry and when asked them to update

    Hello there, gargeean. Our watersports have been under maintenance for some period of time, but are fully operational now. The website was always updated to show that the activity is not available at the moment and we provided a discount for all the customers for the inconvenience. To see live availability, please go to our website Jetbiatmiami.com JBM TEAM

    Hi Sylvia R, Thank you for your review and feedback! We did switch our banana boat recently, but it has always held 6 passengers (before it was 3 on each side, now its 6 one behind the other). The reason we changed it is because if you fall, you won't fall on top of each other but one behind the other :) The ride is the same and the experience is the same as always though! We are happy to hear you enjoyed and hope to see you again in the future! Kind regards,
