What You Can Expect

Dubai RIB Boat Cruise: Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina

See the sights of Dubai from the water!

Make your own way to Dubai Marina and meet your experienced skipper. Get a safety briefing, put on a supplied life jacket, and step onto your modern RIB.

Then, hold the clutch rail as your boat pulls away from dock and picks up speed, traveling at up to 21 miles per hour (25 knots).
Cruise out of the marina and leave the skyscrapers behind as your boat zips through the waves to the spectacular Palm Jumeirah. 

Designed in the shape of a palm tree with a central ‘trunk’ and ‘fronds’, the island chain is lined with upscale villas and hotels perched beside the shimmering Persian Gulf.
Bounce through the waters to the Palm’s showstopper sight: the gargantuan Atlantis The Palm. This vast hotel towers up from the Palm’s outer fringes and is best appreciated from the water. 

After taking photos here, cruise toward the impressive Burj Al-Arab, the sail-shaped hotel on an artificial island just off Jumeirah beach.

Speed around the hotel, and enjoy the last thrilling stretch of the cruise as you zoom past royal palaces and Dubai Lagoon to Dubai Marina, where your 1.5-hour trip ends.

The Yellow boat cruise was an awesome experience. If you haven't gone on this cruise, your dubai holiday isn't complete. Ruwan was such an excellent skipper.
