What You Can Expect

Dubai RIB Boat Cruise: Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina

See the sights of Dubai from the water!

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.

Second time we have done the 90 minute trip. Very relaxing as well as fun and informative with added humour. Always worth doing if in Dubai as the marina area itself is good to see.

Great cruise, you get to see a lot that only the ultra famous would have access to. It is an uncovered boat, and it was VERY HOT, even with the haze and some cloud coverage. There is no amount of sunscreen to battle the Dubai heat and hats will surely blow off. The 90 minute ride was just barely tolerable for that reason. Maybe they will consider covering a couple of the boats. Still worth it.

We went in July and it was banging hot. Make sure you on the earliest possible boat to avoid the heat as much as possible.
This was heaps of fun and I highly recommend it. We did it on our first day and just loved the view of amazing buildings such as Atlantis and Burj al Arab from the water. The stories about the royal family walking their tigers on the beach were very cool too.

This 75 minute tour was worth it as well. The boat follows strict safety guidelines and it felt safe. It was extremely hot August-mid morning time, but the crewSuhil, our guide offered cold water frequently and added some short thrill minutes maneuvering the boats on our way along the coast to admire the famous hotels and palaces from the water side. We were glad we took it. It was a lot of fun!
