What You Can Expect

Dubai Speedboat Palm Jumeirah Cruise

Admire the spectacular Burj Al-Arab from your speedboat

Begin your small-group experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Settle into an air-conditioned minivan and travel to the Dubai Marina Yacht Club where the Sea Breeze, your gleaming modern speedboat waits.
Step on deck and drink in the views of the Jumeirah high-rises as your vessel sails out on to the sparkling Persian Gulf. Then, enjoy the cooling coastal winds as the fittingly named Sea Breeze gathers speed, reaching up to 40 miles (64 km) per hour.
Cut through the waves and keep refreshed with the unlimited complimentary water and sodas on board.
Grab your camera and snap photos of the Palm Jumeirah as your skipper steers toward the beautiful, man-made archipelago. Designed in the shape of a palm tree, each curving frond of the island is lined with expensive villas and residential complexes overlooking the water.
Jet around the different fronds and keep your camera poised as you reach the outer fringes of the Palm — home to the monumental Atlantis The Palm. Snap pictures of the stunning hotel that dominates the archipelago.
Afterward, head further to the east to visit The World, the 300 or so man-made sandy islets shaped like a world map. Admire the still-unfinished archipelago as your skipper points out the different countries and continents they represent.
Revel in the views of Dubai’s skyscrapers stretched along the coast and pause off the sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel that rises from the sea just off Jumeirah beach.
Finally, jet around the Palm once more and dock at the marina. Your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

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.
