Our guide Arun was fantastic ! He was very clear in his safety instructions. He told us which part of the boat to sit for different experience. The slow cruise from the canel to the sea was filled with introduction to the various buildings. Once we reached the sea, the boat increased the speed and it was fun ! We stopped at Atlantis City and Burj Al Arab to take photos. Arun was very helpful and took photos for us, with great angles. It was an enjoyable boat trip kudos to Arun and the skipper. Highly recommended !

Excellent tour. Great way to see the Marina and then the whole skyline from the sea. Informative commentary from Crystal and great photo opportunities.

Friendly guide on boat. Gentle ride through the developed marine area. Once out on the sea the boat speeded up. Loved the high speed boat ride in the hot Dubai climate. Our guide happily took photos of us in front of the Atlantis Hotel and Burj Al Arab. From the boat you cannot see the leaves/fronds of the Palm due to the almost circular outer leaf. Will repeat the trip when we return to Dubai.

I arrived late on my time of boat ride since i got lost, but the staff is so nice to let me ride on the next boat trip, the staff is really nice and helpful, it's extremely hot that day so they always giving us water to keep us hydrated during the ride. It's a must activity when you're in Dubai if you want to see some of the famous landmark whit in 90minutes.

This was a great introductory informative trip showing us Dubai. Joy was a superb fun host. Alongwith the driver (Verun?) who gave us a white knuckle ride at times made it a fantastic experience.

We took the 75-minute cruise at 18:30 so we could see the sunset. Luckily, we were the only people on the tour, so our group of four had the boat to ourselves. The boat was very safe and the life vests were really cool, unusual and state of the art. Our guide Joy was friendly and fabulous and gave us a tour tailored to our language preference and cultural background. The tour was very informative. We learned about the architecture, the different features of the buildings (both existing and future), and the neighborhoods we rode by. The ride was both scenic and a lot of fun. When the boat hit the open waters, we sped up and it was a blast. Riding into the sunset was really beautiful. From the water, you could really see Hotel Atlantis in its full magnificence. Helpful info: Complimentary mineral water is available on board. Bags and hats can be stored under the seats on the boat

Date of visited : December 28,2017 Sorry for reviewing Common GREAT SPEED BOAT Within the stipulated time, we arrived and were taken to our boat and provided safety advice, a mini seatbelt and a welcome bottle of water.

Highly recommended, Driver was very friendly and pointed out a lot of information about the surrounding buildings as we were passing through the Dubai Marina and again when we were out near the Palm. Driver offered us water and to take photos of us. Excellent.

Great morning out. We met at the harbour and had time for a coffee and then met the people in charge of the trip. Lots of information was given about the trip and any questions were answered. One thing to remember is if you have back problems be aware that its a boat that bounces over the waves, but great fun.

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.
