Fun in the sun 4 hour cruise

Has anyone done this tour with Tour Dubai or Dannat tours.

It is a 4 hour cruise past world islands and swimming near Jumeirah beach hotel.

Did you get sea sick or is this boat big and stable?

As it only cruises on Fridays we have to book in advance but I first want to get more info.

Hi Roxy,

Have you searched the forum for reviews of this?

Personally, after the on going sewage dumping issues, I wouldn't swim anywhere near the Dubai coast.

The Gulf is normally very calm, being almost landlocked - its only outlet to the ocean being the Straits of Hormuz - and wind only an issue during winter months - I doubt very much in September you'll get anything other than a slight swell at most, so no worries on sea sickness.

Hi there

Thanks for info.

No, I can't seem to find any other info on trip advisor concerning this cruise. I thought this will be a great idea to see Dubai from another angle.

I didn't know about the sewage dumping. Which areas?

Will swimming in the sea be a problem? We are going to use the Madinat Jumeirah special and spent 1 day on their beach area.

We can't wait and I have been on the net so many hours that it feels to me I have been there already.
