Excellent time on the waves with Armin!
Sep 2021 • Couples
An excellent time with the Hero crew on our boat trip around Dubai. Armin our guide was excellent, great sense of humour, he brought us to all the major spots along the coast and had great information to share about each one. Took some lovely photos too of us and shared them afterwards which we really appreciated, great memories, thanks so much Armin! The boats are super fun to drive and a nice change from jet skis, while still allowing you to be in charge, would definitely go again!

Aug 2021 • Solo
I participated in both the Sunset and Sunrise tours and it was an enjoyable experience !

The boats are self drive and easy to learn accompanied with a simple tutorial from one of the instructors in the beginning.

My instructor was Ali and he was great - he took as to Burj Al Arab and Palm Atlantis. Ali was patient and took some lovely pictures and videos.

Some parts of the boat ride we’ve experienced some waves however nothing too extreme - the boats are extremely safe and also has a compartment for you to store your belongings. Waterproof bags, water bottles and lockers provided by Hero Odysea are also a big bonus!

TIP - If you arrive super early there is a small cafe serving refreshments which is about a 2 min walk away from the Hero Odysea base.

Hero staff will also assist you with wi fi connection and taxi bookings
