What You Can Expect

Abu Dhabi RIB Sightseeing Boat Cruise

Get spectacular views over Abu Dhabi

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 craft motors away from dock and into the marina bay. Soak in the views of the domes and towers of the monumental Emirates Palace hotel, and then pick up speed as your boat heads out 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 along 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 and recent transformation into a glitzy metropolis. Then, watch for pods of dolphins swimming by the boat as you cruise around artificial Lulu Island. Look out on 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.

Great tour. Unfortunately the location of the marina makes it very hard to get a taxi. There are no signs to the yellow boat office and we waited one hour for a taxi to take us back to our hotel. This needs to be fixed.

Really enjoyed this tour. Seeing Abu Dhabi from the sea was very interesting but Danny also gave an excellent running commentary as to sights and scenes. Very safe and well controlled trip

We had a great time, Danny our captain for the trip was professional, polite and informative. The crossing in the open water was a bit bumpy but we all enjoyed it, it doesn't take long to get dry!
