Enjoy Private Boat Cruise and Tour Sightseeing in Dubai Marina

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Select a 2-, 3-, 4- or 6-hour cruise on booking, and arrange a departure time with the local supplier.

    Then, travel independently to the departure pier at Dubai Marina, where your 32-foot (9.75-meter) luxury fishing boat and experienced skipper await. Feel free to bring along your own food, drinks, and music to enjoy during your trip.

    Meet your skipper, step aboard, and admire the gleaming, modern motorboat. With space for up to 10 passengers, the onboard facilities include a sun deck, cabin, and restroom. Your boat is also pre-equipped with sodas, mineral water, ice, light refreshments, a music system, and fishing equipment for your use.

    Listen to a safety briefing, don a life vest, and then hold the clutch rail as your boat picks up speed, cruising past the marina’s skyscrapers onto the Arabian Gulf.

    Cut through the waves to the Palm Jumeirah, and enjoy the views as you sail around this vast, artificial palm-shaped island. Gaze at the gigantic Atlantis The Palm hotel that towers from the island’s outer fringes, and zoom over the water to the spectacular Burj Al Arab, the sail-shaped hotel on its own island off Jumeirah.

    Speed by this 7-star showpiece, and then continue on a round-trip route past other landmarks like royal palaces, beaches, and Dubai's opulent seafront resorts and malls.

    As you sail past the sights, bask in the sunshine and sea breezes, and enjoy the unlimited snacks, sodas, and water provided on board, as well as any food and drinks of your own. Feel free, too, to listen to your chosen music, and if you wish, make use of the fishing equipment, trying your hand at some sea angling.

    When it’s time, return to Dubai Marina, and say goodbye to your skipper. Your cruise experience finishes when you disembark.
