Banana ride in Malvan:
A banana boat, is an unpowered, inflatable recreational boat meant to be towed. A Banana Boat Ride could be a Banana-formed tube connected to the speed boat that pulls you on the water at high speed. As the speed of speedboat increases, the banana tube attached to it also moves faster. This makes it difficult for the people riding the tube to maintain their balance. The boat throws off the passengers as soon as the speed boat sprints across the sea. After being thrown into the surf, the passengers pull themselves back into the banana boat and start afresh. So the banana boat ride is full of joy, laughter, and excitement.
Sofa Ride in Malvan:
Sofa Ride is one of the most exciting water sports you can enjoy in Malvan. Sofa Ride is done on an inflatable floating sofa-type platform with perfect balance and securing belts.

People of all ages can enjoy this ride as it is easy to maintain your balance on a sofa when one is properly secured to the sofa with a seatbelt.
Bumper Ride in Malvan:
The Bumper Ride is similar to a Banana Ride, but in the Bumper ride they use a circular tube that is tied to the boat and pulled by the boat that is then forced by it at high speeds, giving riders a sense of flight. As the speed of the boat or jet-ski increases the speed of the circular tubes also increases as the tubes are tied to the boats. This causes the boat to jump on the ocean waves and it is overall an experience filled with excitement and thrill. One feels like they are flying on these waves, so brace yourself up for the thrilling experience.
Parasailing in Malvan:
Parasailing is a recreational activity of gliding through the air wearing an open parachute while being towed by a motorboat. It is basically a kiting activity where a person is towed behind a boat while being attached to a specially designed canopy wing that resembles a parachute. The harness attaches the occupant to the parasail, which is connected to the boat. The vehicle then drives off, carrying the parascender (or wing) and person into the air. The activity is primarily a fun ride, not to be confused with the sport of paragliding. Parasailing is one such water sports activity that is sure to pump up your adrenaline rush. While parasailing you will be able to experience how it feels to fly high in the sky above the clear seawater.
