Meet your skipper at Abu Dhabi Marina, and after a safety briefing, don your provided life vest. Then, climb aboard your state-of-the-art, bright yellow RIB.
Grasp the clutch rail as the skipper revs the engine and your boat motors into the marina bay. Soak in the views of the dome of the monumental Emirates Palace hotel, and then pick up speed as your craft heads onto the waters of the sparkling Arabian Gulf.
Speed along the coast, passing the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, a replica of a traditional oasis village, and the palms and golden sands of the Corniche, Abu Dhabi’s 5-mile (8 kilometer) waterfront.
Pause to snap photos of the high-rises that tower above the beaches and listen as your skipper tells tales of Abu Dhabi’s innovative architecture. Then, watch for dolphins swimming by the boat as you cruise around Lulu Island. Admire the pristine, palm-fringed beaches and the panoramas of Abu Dhabi’s skyline stretched along the horizon.
Afterward, moor back at the marina, where your cruise ends.
Please note: Only the 90-minute tour passes the Grand Mosque.
