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.

Super fun and the perfect time since you catch the full sunset. There were two guides on my boat and they were very friendly and funny and happy to take your pictures. The 90min tour is the perfect length and you see everything that matters! I was traveling solo and this is a great activity.

We had the most amazing time! The water was a little choppy and the boat ride was epic. The skipper really knew how to make sure we didn’t get wet even with the crazy water. The tour guide was funny and very informative. This is a great way to see the whole skyline and other places all at once.

Amazing Yellow Boat trip around Dubai

Pure fun
, Dec 2020
The 99Min Trip is very nice. Specially our Guide William was very entertaining and supportive giving as a good time with many informations a a cool sense of humour. It‘s a trip I will do again for sure. To use a rip boat allows more speed, wind, waves and fun instead of The big, lazy yachts
