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.

This has to be the best boat ride ever! As soon as the boat left Marina Bay, it accelerated like a roller coaster!
We saw Atlantis The Palm, Burj-al-arab and the other Jumeirah hotels and palaces in the vicinity.
Our guide was very helpful and took pictures for all the guests on the boat.
This is definitely a must-do in Dubai!
Take the 90-min tour and enjoy the thrilling ride!

We absolutely loved the Dubai RIB Boat Cruise. It was one of our favourite things to do in Dubai. We did the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina Cruise for 90 minutes which we initially thought might be a bit too long but it was perfect. We got to see everything that we wanted to see and there were more than enough stops for photos. The guide was so professional and friendly. We went first thing in the morning which was great as it was quiet. There were a lot more people on the later tours. This activity is highly recommended.

Nice activity indeed. I enjoyed it a lot. It is my pleasure to spend some words of praise for Joseph the skipper. He was very nice and courteous. An activity not to miss out while in Dubai.

Will was our skipper. He was absolutely fantastic and made our 90 min trip go so fast with all his information. The views were spectacular and definitely the highlight of our trip to Dubai. We did the 4.45pm trip which was brilliant as saw the sunset and sailed through the marina with all the lights twinkling. The boat trip was not a gentle cruise and we bounded over the waves which was exhilarating.

Taxi driver took us the long route and ended up in another place which i find hard to believe the locals do not know the marina. Anyway, the trip was very good we was a family of four age range from 66 to 11 and we all enjoyed it. The guide spoke clear english and took photos for us. I thought it was expensive but however all the tours are expensive this one was good.
