Zip and zoom along Dubai’s most spectacular stretch of coast on a 60-, 75- or 99-minute cruise by RIB (rigid-inflatable boat). Step aboard your high-speed craft at Dubai Marina, and hold the rails as your skipper opens the throttle and speeds you over the waves. Whizz around the man-made archipelago of Palm Jumeirah, and enjoy unobstructed views of the Palm Atlantis, Burj Al-Arab, royal palaces, and Dubai Lagoon from the sea. This RIB cruise is limited to a maximum of 10 people, so you enjoy a more personalized experience.
  • 60-, 75- or 90-minute RIB tour around Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah
  • Hang on tight as a skipper navigates the motor-powered inflatable boat
  • Cruise around the Persian Gulf’s coastal waters
  • Jet around Palm Jumeirah and stop on the water for photos near Atlantis The Palm hotel
  • Pass Burj Al Arab hotel as well as several royal palaces and a scenic lagoon
  • Choose from a selection of start times to suit your schedule
Make your own way to Dubai Marina and meet your experienced skipper. Get a safety briefing, put on a supplied life jacket, and step onto your modern RIB.
Then, hold the clutch rail as your boat pulls away from dock and picks up speed, traveling at up to 21 miles per hour (25 knots). Cruise out of the marina and leave the skyscrapers behind as your boat zips through the waves to the spectacular Palm Jumeirah. 
Designed in the shape of a palm tree with a central ‘trunk’ and ‘fronds’, the island chain is lined with upscale villas and hotels perched beside the shimmering Persian Gulf. Bounce through the waters to the Palm’s showstopper sight: the gargantuan Atlantis The Palm. This vast hotel towers up from the Palm’s outer fringes and is best appreciated from the water. 
After taking photos here, cruise toward the impressive Burj Al-Arab, the sail-shaped hotel on an artificial island just off Jumeirah beach.
Speed around the hotel, and enjoy the last thrilling stretch of the cruise as you zoom past royal palaces and Dubai Lagoon to Dubai Marina, where your trip ends.

Really enjoyed this trip. Was well organised and the speed boat was really fun. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Great to see the sights like the Eye they are building to rival the London Eye and of course the Atlantis, The Palm. Would highly recommend this trip.

I cannot help but feel that this offering is both somehow overrated and overpriced. It is the only activity that we would not want to repeat on any return visit to Dubai. The slow movement through the Dubai Marina is... well, very slow, and takes up more than half of the allotted time. When we reached Palm Jumeirah, we could hardly see Burj Al Arab in the distance, as I think the crew turned the boat back earlier than they had intended. I am sorry, but I think a bike ride or even a dinner cruise might be a better way of seeing the marina, and as for the open sea part, I am sorry to say that the experience was underwhelming, and I don't fully understand why so many people give this activity 5 stars. Having said that, everyone involved was very nice, and it was all a friendly atmosphere.

Sorry for reviewing Common

Within the stipulated time, we arrived and were taken to our boat and provided safety advice, a mini seatbelt and a welcome bottle of water.
The staff helped the photo to be taken very well and was free on board.
The staff is very helpful and polite. Very positive experience
The wind is very strong and the sea conditions are very flat but safety
The boat ride is great.
Spent 75 minutes to Atlantis, Great view and great fun!
This tour is highly recommended and booked with Viator

Highly recommended, Driver was very friendly and pointed out a lot of information about the surrounding buildings as we were passing through the Dubai Marina and again when we were out near the Palm. Driver offered us water and to take photos of us. Excellent.

Great morning out. We met at the harbour and had time for a coffee and then met the people in charge of the trip. Lots of information was given about the trip and any questions were answered. One thing to remember is if you have back problems be aware that its a boat that bounces over the waves, but great fun.
