This is an excellent way to spend 90 minutes. It was a brilliant way to view the Marina, then the high speed journey out along the coast line. We stopped opposite the Atlantis, The Palm and also The Burj al Arab for Photos. We had...More

The driver showed experience and knowledge of boat – managing the waves and cutting very well. He offered water regularly at each stop and had a pleasant / friendly nature. Varin knew the area well and filled us with all sorts of useless information 😊...More

Took the morning tour to see the Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab, and was a great way to see the sights and get some pictures of the skylines. Our skipper Suresh was very helpful in getting family photos for us!

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

We never got asked about a weight limit. But I very much doubt it,as it was a very sturdy boat. It didn’t half nip on,when that put the foot down and done hand brake turns,we loved it. Stuart Montrose
