Viewing Dubai from the water is one of the best ways to experience its skyline, with its towers silhouetted against the sky. This RIB (rigid inflatable boat) cruise zooms along the coast to offer more sights and photo ops combined with high-speed fun. Enjoy unobstructed views of the Palm Atlantis and Burj Al Arab, and capture the skyline on camera. A choice of durations and time slots add flexibility.

What to Expect

Travel independently to Dubai Marina and meet your skipper. You'll don a supplied life jacket and board a modern RIB, after a safety briefing.

Hold tight as your boat picks up speed, zipping across the waves to Palm Jumeirah, an artificial island designed in the shape of a palm tree that's famous for its upscale villas and hotels.

Take in the views (and photos) of Dubai’s skyline stretched along the coast and zoom to the island’s showstopper of a hotel: Atlantis, The Palm. Best appreciated from the water, this vast hotel towers from the Palm's edges.

After taking photos, cruise toward the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel off Jumeirah Beach. Circle the hotel for the best shots, and then get soaked by sea spray as you cut through the waves past palaces and Dubai Lagoon back to Dubai Marina, where your cruise experience concludes.

High Speed Fun

Great way to see Dubai. Our skipper Varun was great at giving us information. It was our first day in Dubai and helped us to work out where everything was.

Just back from our Dubai holiday. The yellow boat trip was definitely one of our best days there. Pri was an excellent guide, he was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Four happy holiday makers!!!!

a race to Atlantis

We boarded the yellow rubber rib boat with about 8 other passengers and slowly meandered through the quiet waters of the Marina for about 20 minutes then the outboard roared and we sped across the choppy waters with the boards of the boat smashing down...More
