Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to Dubai Marina and meet your experienced skipper. Get a safety briefing, put on a supplied life jacket, and step onto your modern RIB.

Then, hold the clutch rail as your boat pulls away from dock and picks up speed, traveling at up to 21 miles per hour (25 knots). Cruise out of the marina and leave the skyscrapers behind as your boat zips through the waves to the spectacular Palm Jumeirah. 

Designed in the shape of a palm tree with a central ‘trunk’ and ‘fronds’, the island chain is lined with upscale villas and hotels perched beside the shimmering Persian Gulf. Bounce through the waters to the Palm’s showstopper sight: the gargantuan Atlantis The Palm. This vast hotel towers up from the Palm’s outer fringes and is best appreciated from the water. 

After taking photos here, cruise toward the impressive Burj Al-Arab, the sail-shaped hotel on an artificial island just off Jumeirah beach.

Speed around the hotel, and enjoy the last thrilling stretch of the cruise as you zoom past royal palaces and Dubai Lagoon to Dubai Marina, where your trip ends.

Enjoyable !

Our guide Arun was fantastic ! He was very clear in his safety instructions. He told us which part of the boat to sit for different experience. The slow cruise from the canel to the sea was filled with introduction to the various buildings. Once we reached the sea, the boat increased the speed and it was fun ! We stopped at Atlantis City and Burj Al Arab to take photos. Arun was very helpful and took photos for us, with great angles. It was an enjoyable boat trip kudos to Arun and the skipper. Highly recommended !
Great way to see Dubai

This is an excellent way to see Dubai from a different angle. Our guide Ronaldo was very nice and made sure everyone enjoyed the trip. He took lots of photos for us and the fast boat once out a sea was really fun
Classic Yellow Boat Trip

Friendly guide on boat. Gentle ride through the developed marine area. Once out on the sea the boat speeded up. Loved the high speed boat ride in the hot Dubai climate. Our guide happily took photos of us in front of the Atlantis Hotel and Burj Al Arab. From the boat you cannot see the leaves/fronds of the Palm due to the almost circular outer leaf. Will repeat the trip when we return to Dubai.

I arrived late on my time of boat ride since i got lost, but the staff is so nice to let me ride on the next boat trip, the staff is really nice and helpful, it's extremely hot that day so they always giving us water to keep us hydrated during the ride. It's a must activity when you're in Dubai if you want to see some of the famous landmark whit in 90minutes.

Fantastic Trip
, Jul 2019
We booked this Trip before we arrived in Dubai + I'm so glad we did. What a fantastic experience it was. Our Guide ( can't remember his name now , Bol maybe ?? )was brilliant + he took time to tell us all about the Sights around Dubai. It was a blessing when we reached Open Water as it was a Balmy 45 Degrees + although it was like being blasted by a Giant hairdryer is just added to the experience. Whilst on about the Heat , the 2 Guides on the Boat were fantastic with giving out Bottles of Water ( think I had 4 on the Trip ). They take you to all the sights you want to see ( Palm , Burj Al Aarab , Atlantis ) + will also take Photos for you. All in all , this was a fantastic Trip , with a Brilliant Guide in a beautiful place. A MUST DO!!!!
