Find your way to the Jumeirah Fishing Harbor, where you'll meet your skipper and small group of 10 people or fewer. Strap on your provided life jacket and step on board your speed boat, then find a seat and hang on. Your modern speed boat can reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour (48 kph).
Head straight for the man-made Palm Jumeirah, an archipelago built to resemble a palm tree. Zoom through the islands, home to high-end hotels and luxury villas. The archipelago's outlying island is home to the Atlantis the Palm, a famously luxe hotel worth of a photo stop.
Travel east around the palm formation to the Burj Al Arab, where you'll get views of the sail-shaped building and another chance to take some photos. Continue down the coast, which features a lagoon and some royal palaces, before heading back to the marina.
Your 1.5-hour speedboat cruise ends when you return to land.
