What You Can Expect

Dubai Seaplane Flight

See Dubai's Burj Al Arab Hotel from the air!

Choose from two take-off locations — Jebel Ali or Dubai Creek — and select from the three departure times at each location when you book. Then, make your own way to the takeoff point for your 40-minute seaplane flight.

Meet your professional pilot and admire your aircraft: a modern Cessna seaplane that takes off from and lands on water. 

Get a safety briefing and take a seat inside the shared plane. Put on your seatbelt and feel your heart lift as your plane gathers speed on the water and rises above the Dubai coastline.

Have your camera ready as you soar around the Burj Khalifa and sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel. Snap photos of the palm-tree-shaped archipelago of the Palm Jumeirah; and look down on The World, the stunning 300 or so sandy islands built in the outline of a world map.

Swoop over Port Rashid and hover above Dubai Creek and the Deira and Bur Dubai neighborhoods as your pilot points out the landmarks.

Then, glide over the skyscrapers and luxury yachts of Dubai Marina, and circle the golden beaches, golf courses and ships and cranes of the Jebel Ali port area.

Finally, thrill as your Cessna turns and glides back along the coast toward Jumeirah and Dubai.

After roughly 40 minutes in the air, land safely on the water and say goodbye to your pilot. Your seaplane experience then ends at the original start point.

Great experience! My first time on a seaplane, and loved it! It’s amazing to see Dubai from the air! My favourite views were the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al-Arab and the palm tree island from the sky. Definitely recommend it!

We loved the flight over Dubai by Seawings - it was good organised and the views on Dubai were just amazing. We felt quite safe and comfortable. We can recommend it to everyone, who wants to experience Dubai from another point of view.

At first glance this seems expensive but it was worth every dirham. The only hiccup was that the confirmation number was not working as they have moved buildings which resulted in a panic purchase of a local sim card to get a data connection and send an email whilst shopping.
Otherwise everything went smoothly from the free pre flight drinks to the wonderful views and trip. Plenty of time was given to seeing Dubai and the Palm from many angles so that all on board had a great view. Very smooth flight and interesting sea landing at Jebel Ali. Don't let the haze put you off as it is better from the air.
