What You Can Expect

Dubai Speedboat Palm Jumeirah Cruise

Admire the spectacular Burj Al-Arab from your speedboat

Start your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel. Then, travel by comfortable minivan to Dubai Marina Yacht Club where your speedboat, the sleek Sea Breeze awaits.

Hop aboard and enjoy the views over the skyscrapers as your boat leaves the Marina for the Persian Gulf. Feel the coastal breezes as the aptly named Sea Breeze picks up speed — it can reach over 40 miles (64km) per hour, so it’s an exhilarating feeling!

As you cruise, enjoy unlimited complimentary water and sodas. Then, watch as the Palm Jumeirah comes into view. The incredible man-made archipelago is designed to resemble a palm tree and is home to exclusive villas and hotels that look out over the water’s edge.

Zoom around the Palm and have your camera ready as you approach its outermost point, where the Atlantis The Palm rises high into the sky. Take snaps of this spectacular hotel, known by many as the Palm’s showpiece building.

Then, your boat turns eastward to see The World, a collection of man-made sand islets shaped to resemble a map of the globe. Admire the archipelago, which is still unfinished, and identify the countries and continents the islands represent before your boat turns around and heads back.

On your return, your captain will slow your boat as you approach the Burj Al-Arab. This sail-shaped hotel is an icon of Dubai and another essential snap for your photo album.

After time to admire this magnificent building, cruise back around the Palm and moor at the marina. Your experience ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

An absolutely fantastic trip around The Palm, The Bug Al-Arab, Marina and the skyline of Dubai! We were kept well hydrated and provided with some really great picture opportunities and information about key parts of Dubai. A very personal and excellently run trip!

The speedboat tour was good. I wish we went to The World but we only went to Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab. The tour guid said it was because of the cioastguard.
Overall the tour was good despite the weather conditions. Not much sun that day.

Excellent trip with really informative guide. As there are only 6 people on the boat it feels very comfortable and exclusive. Was a good way to see some of the sights while sitting in the sunshine. Would definitely recommend. Collection and drop off as promised - was slightly late but they phoned concierge of hotel to inform us so not a problem.
