Danny was an amazing captain! I was impressed with his seamanship & knowledge. It was a perfect way to spend part of an afternoon. We saw dolphins and a sea turtle! The views from the water should not be missed! Thanks again, Captain Danny!

Nice and very polite tour guide Daniel took us 60 min around Emirates Palace, Corniche and Lulu Island. The Yellow Boats - for me a unique travel experience!!!

Excellent tour. Started off with a intense adventure ride out to sea. Then stops at the sites with lots of knowledge about the monuments. Daniel was a wealth of knowledge, respectful, funny and a great driver of the vessel. We had a blast!
