About
Abu Dhabi looks at its best from the sea, with its futuristic towers and domes rising into the sky. This RIB (rigid-inflatable boat) cruise lets you combine the panoramas with a high-speed boat ride. Hold tight as you power across the waters, and slow down for photos of the Corniche skyscrapers, Emirates Palace, and more. Upgrade to a longer cruise that passes the Grand Mosque for an extended city overview.

Highlights
  • Views of the Emirates Palace, Corniche, and skyscrapers from the water
  • Bounce over the waves and pause at sights for photos and commentary
  • Choice of timings, plus longer-cruise upgrade to sail by the Grand Mosque 
What to expect
  • Book your preferred option and greet your skipper at Abu Dhabi Marina. Then, following a safety briefing, put on a life jacket and board your powerful RIB, with the skipper at the helm. Hold the safety rail as your craft pulls into the marina bay and admire the opulent, 114-domed 5-star Emirates Palace hotel. Feel the wind in your hair as your boat accelerates and race along the coast past the Heritage Village and palm-dotted Corniche. Take photos of the scenery as your RIB slows, and if you’ve selected the longer cruise, cruise further for views of the lavish Presidential Palace and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Hear about the city’s history and architecture from your skipper, and watch for dolphins as you sail around Lulu Island, an artificial islet of golden beaches. Lastly, savor the widescreen cityscapes before an exhilarating ride back to the marina where your experience ends.

Loved my tour with Kasun and Sohail at yellow boat tours. Very helpful when I arrived and departed. Loved seeing Abu Dhabi from the water. Always offered to take pictures and stopped often. Very knowledgeable. At the end of the tour they waited with me until I got into a taxi to ensure I got home safe:) Thanks guys! ❤️

From beginning to end a great fun experience.
Highly recommended especially the afternoon/evening ride to see the sunset.
We were looked after by Sohail and Kusun and they were both wonderfully entertaining.
If you get a chance this is a must.
