At least once in your life while sunbathing on the beach or relaxing under your parasol, you would have noticed something beautiful jumping on the waves. Its shape, often banana-shaped, and its various colours have certainly made you curious. It is a banana boat or simply a towed buoy. If you have already done so and still haven't tried this fantastic adventure, we list here five reasons why such an experience is worth having in France:
1. Synonymous with fun and entertainment
Summer is coming, and you still haven't put a towed buoy trip on your list of things to do? Then you should know that your list is not yet complete. Towing a buoy is a fascinating experience, especially in a group. Get your family and friends together for this exciting adventure. These inflatable, non-motorised buoys can carry 2 to 10 people on board for a thrilling ride. Our partner centres invite you to take part in this fun experience. They provide you with everything you need for this adventure such as life jackets, etc. The only requirement is that you can at least swim. It is the case for all water activities, so much so that it is a prerequisite. We are sure that your family and friends will cherish this experience, so get into groups and go together for a fun and relaxing session where laughter is guaranteed!
2. The perfect plan for the summer season
It's a known fact that summer is the season for cooling off, relaxing and unwinding. All of this ties in perfectly with the towed buoy trip, a safe practice that brings you laughter, unwinding and relaxing. Remember we mentioned the number of people that this thing can carry? If more weight is added or if you don't hold on well enough, the whole team will be floating and almost flying on the water, and that's when it gets hilarious! That's the fun part of this popular practice for everyone - young or old. Come and have a great time on our most beautiful beaches in France, being pulled by a boat or a jet ski, while you each hold on to each other to keep from falling! The funniest part of the ride is when you or the whole team fall, and everyone bursts out laughing! Then you start again instantly to enjoy your stay and your holiday.
3. Builds social links
As we mentioned earlier, this practice is gaining ground in France. Day after day, it welcomes new enthusiasts because it is fascinating and hilarious! We all become children again at the sight of this buoy, let alone when we are sitting in it for a good speed ride! So even if you go alone or in a small group, our partners will sometimes create larger groups to make your experience possible and successful. This way, you will meet regulars who are passionate about this practice and will welcome you with open arms. You can then plan new tours to enjoy it even more! This activity is also perfect for companies to organise team outings or client outings before the summer holidays. There are many options for a towed buoy outing, so it's up to you to decide which one best suit your wishes and your schedule.
4. It’s a safe activity with no risks
If you're wondering about the safety of this activity, let us tell you that towed buoy diving is one of the safest water activities available. Why? There is no risk of drowning because as previously stated; you need to be able to swim to enjoy it. Our partners ensure that all participants can swim before starting the activity.
