From the magnificent sail-like structure of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah to the imposing Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, the magnificent structures that grace the emirate's coastline are a sight to behold. If you're short on time and would like to cover as much ground as possible while touring the city, a sightseeing excursion along the coastline is the way to go. While yacht, boat and dhow cruises in Dubai are dime a dozen, one of the most interesting ways to add a bit of adventure to your trip is embarking on a self-driven boat tour through the Arabian Gulf. As a myconcierge member, you can now book this unique sightseeing expedition with HERO OdySEA's tour packages.
Touring Dubai with HERO OdySEA is not only about the thrill of being your own captain. The experience is designed to take you on a journey through time, exploring life in the city's historic quarters before you move on to the iconic landmarks in the modern side of the city. Your adventure begins at the Fishing Harbour in Jumeirah 2, where you will gather with the rest of your group for a safety briefing and supervised test drive of the boat. Once you feel confident, your tour guide will usher you away from the harbour and into the open waters of the Arabian Gulf.
This 90-minute adventure sees you cruising along Kite Beach, where you're likely to find professional surfers riding the waves in the distance with colourful kites in all sorts of shapes and sizes. You will then move on to Dubai Marina before you make your way to Palm Jumeirah to view the many beachfront resorts and mansions along the shore. And if you're looking to capture these picture-perfect moments, you can make plenty of stops for photographs along the way.
All HERO OdySEA boats are safe, sturdy and easy to drive, and they make for wonderful adventures with friends and family. Tours depart in groups of five with a professional guide, which ensures expert supervision along the way. To make your experience more insightful, your guide will make stops to share anecdotes and facts about life on sandier pastures.
