What You Can Expect

Helicopter Flight in Dubai

See Dubai's impressive skyline from a helicopter!

Choose from a 15-minute or 25-minute Dubai helicopter tour when you book. Then, after a pickup from your central Dubai hotel, travel to the Atlantis The Palm hotel on the Palm Jumeirah to arrive at least 45 minutes before your flight start time.
Check in at the helipad and settle into the comfortable lounge. Sip on a complimentary soda, tea or coffee as you listen to a safety briefing, and when the time comes, meet your experienced pilot.
Hop inside the state-of-the-art helicopter and sit next to the pilot or in the row of four seats behind. Then, enjoy the views as your helicopter whirrs skyward and flies high above Dubai and the Persian Gulf.
Soar over the coastline and drink in the sight of the Palm Jumeirah, the incredible Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al-Arab hotel.
Hover above the golden beaches and azure waters of the gulf, and have your camera poised as your pilot points out particular high-rises and attractions.
Then, keep your camera ready as you head out over the sea to The World, the stunning man-made archipelago shaped to resemble a world map.
Gaze down at the 300 or so sandy islets below and identify the different countries and continents, such as Lebanon and Greenland, as your pilot tells you about their private and hotelier owners.
After your 15-minute flight, touch back down at the Atlantis helipad and end your helicopter tour with a hotel drop-off.
Alternatively, if you’ve upgraded to a 25-minute flight, enjoy an extra 10 minutes in the air. Fly over other areas of Dubai for bird’s-eye views of more of the city’s attractions. Then, return to the helipad and end your tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

Being high up in the air for 25 minutes was an exhilarating experience. We were able to get a top view of the World. We are going to remember this for a long time.

Wonderful tour. You really get to appreciate the landscape of Dubai and the fabulous buildings. Very professionally organised throughout from hotel pick-up to hotel return.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

What a way to see the city on the day of arrival. Hotel pickup was punctual.Once at the terminal, were were processed and given a visual instructional video on how to handle ourselves in flight. Most of the flight was on the coastline going towards downtown Dubai and over the Palm area. Great photo and video opportunity. Wish it was longer for the price, but it was still well worth it!
