Try Out Banana Boat
The Banana Boat is a banana-shaped rubber boat. The boat is pulled by a speed boat to run it. The sensation of riding a banana boat is similar to that of riding a horse. A guide will overturn the banana boat at the end of the game to give you a wet sensation. A 15-minute game of Banana Boat costs IDR 70,000 per person.
Flying at a greater height while being pulled around by a speed boat is a fantastic experience with a view that no one would swap for! One of the most enjoyable water sports in Bali is parasailing, which gives you a bird’s eye perspective of the ocean.
You’ll take off around 80 meters behind a speedboat, somewhere distant from the coast. The beauty of this enjoyable sport is that it does not necessitate any talent, including swimming, and can be enjoyed by anyone.
Take a stand. Paddleboarding, often known as ‘SUP,’ is a fun and unique method to ride the waves. Due to their bigger size, specially constructed boards allow you to stand firmly upright, while a long paddle allows you to cruise along at your own pace.
Although you can ride over larger swells just like a traditional surfboard, this pastime is best done in calmer conditions. Most surf schools in Bali can teach you how to paddle board, and most claim it’s easier than it seems, so you’ll be hooked in no time! In principle, it should be simple. It’s a challenging core workout in practice. It’s also a fun opportunity to observe Bali’s stunning coastlines from a different perspective.
Want to feel like Tony Stark levitating in his Ironman suit? Try water jetpacks, one of Nusa Dua’s watersport signature. On a jet of water, you can levitate up to 10 meters high with these carefully built kits.
Following a training on the controls and operation of the craft, you strap into the jetpack or straddle the ‘bike’ version and begin flying about the coast for roughly 15-20 minutes. These high-density propulsion devices can elevate you to a standing position or move you in any direction.
