Travel independently to the seaplane dock on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, and check in for your flight. Then, meet your pilot and settle into the modern, shared Cessna seaplane.
After a safety briefing, enjoy an exciting water take-off, and fly over the Yas Island Formula 1 Grand Prix Circuit and red Ferrari-badge roof of the Ferrari World theme park.
Gaze down at the mangrove forests, the coastal ecosystem that helps keep the local waters clear; and then enjoy an aerial tour of Abu Dhabi city.
Swoop over the Emirates Palace hotel and skyscraper-lined Corniche Road, where the beaches and gardens stretch for four miles (6.4 kilometers). Admire the Sheikh Zayed Bridge far below, and then soar over the Arabian Gulf to see Khalifa Port and Nurai Island before ending your 30-minute flight with a water landing back at Yas.
Leave your plane here and set off by private, air-conditioned vehicle with a personal guide for your city tour. Check out some of Abu Dhabi’s vibrant souks, drive by grand palaces, and get up close to some of the city’s futuristic high-rises and architectural landmarks.
As a highlight, pay a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. One of the world’s biggest mosques, this modern Islamic masterpiece of white-marble domes, minarets, and colonnades is an architectural tour de force.
Tour the ornate courtyards and chandelier-hung prayer hall, and as you explore, learn how the mosque was constructed and named after the UAE’s founding father, Sheikh Zayed.
Lastly, head for the magnificent Emirates Palace to enjoy one of its signature specialities — a Palace cappuccino sprinkled with real, 24-carat gold flakes. Sit down to savor this decadent coffee, and then finish your tour with a drop-off at your chosen central location in Abu Dhabi.
