What You Can Expect

Best  Dubai RIB Boat Cruise: Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina

See the sights of Dubai from the water!

Meet your skipper at Dubai Marina, put on your life jacket, and then hop aboard your state-of-the-art RIB. Sit back, clutch the rail, and zip over the water — reaching speeds of up to 21 miles per hour (25 knots) — as your skipper navigates the boat around the marina’s sleek yachts.

Leave the sights of Dubai Marina behind as you head east to one of the city’s best-known archipelagos: stunning Palm Jumeirah. Built to resemble a palm tree, the island chain is home to luxury villas and high-end hotels situated on the Persian Gulf’s calm coastal waters.

Arguably the top sight at Palm Jumeirah is Atlantis The Palm, the eye-popping hotel perched on the archipelago’s furthermost point. Stop in the water in front of the hotel, and use the short break to take photos of the impressive building framed against the bright lights of Dubai.

Continue east around the palm and cruise toward Burj Al Arab, another equally esteemed Dubai hotel. Widely considered to be a 7-star hotel, Burj Al Arab is a true city icon with its distinctive sail-shaped architecture and ultramodern design. After looping in front of the hotel, cruise west along a straight stretch of coast, passing royal palaces and a lagoon, before returning to Dubai Marina.

This tour was amazing!

Absolutely fantastic. Kevin was our skipper for the tour and he made sure that we all enjoyed our trip. We started with a tour of the marina, seeing all the apartment blocks and resturants, before heading out around the palm. Kevin knew all the facts about the hotels and Dubai. We finished with a blast along the coast looking at the Palaces. This is a 'must do' trip when visiting Dubai.
