Got recommended this from a friend in our office and it doesn't disappoint! Tharaka our skipper was super helpful and told us all about the marina. He also recommended other places to visit on our trip. Ps if they ask you if you like to go fast, the answer should always be YES!

You will not be disappointed with this 90 minute tour. Our guide Jozef was first class. He has a vast knowledge of Dubai and he is friendly, fun and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble. We spent time near the Atlantis and Burj Al Arab so we could all take our photographs. Nothing is rushed at all. When we visit... More

The Yellow Boat is an activity that I bring all my guests to on their visit to Dubai. It is always a highlight of their vacation. It's the best way to really get a view of Dubai from the gulf. I highly recommend every visitor should book a yellow boat tour. Thanks again Ruwan for the great adventure

We took the 10.45am ride on the 11th of Jan 2017. The ride was simply amazing. It was even better because of our Skipper Nic and our guide Mahi. Throughout the ride they interacted and stopped to explain the significance of each of the sites. We were enlightened and thoroughly enjoyed it. Keep up the good work guys! You both... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
