If you are an adventure-seeker then this place should be on your bucket list. We haven't tried all of their attractions as we only got our voucher package online, but we still enjoy their main adventure attractions. The place is great and it is almost near the rocky mountains of Al Ain. Their main restaurant just needs some improvement when... More

Planned a surf trip there with flights, hotels and hire cars booked as well as 3 days of private and shared sessions. Constantly kept in contact to make sure they had us all booked in only for them to cancel us 8 days prior to departure without offering to refund

TijoJohn, Manager at Wadi Adventure, responded to this review

Firstly, we apologize for the inconvenience caused by cancelling the booking along with the hassle of cancelling flights and hotels from your side. As our surf pool is constantly running and more often even before/after operational hours (due to excessive demand), the machinery/pumps will at times break down which then will not give out the perfect wave our clientele requires....

You can spend all day here, and do everything from serious wall and rope climbing to kayaking to surfing to just relaxing by the pool. Food service and a water-themed gift store. All at the base of a mountain! A tad heavy on the wallet, but worth it.

This was the second time we visited Wadi Adventure and had great fun even though we did have some spills. Our party consisted of adults and children and there was something for everyone. The Wake boarding was fun for both children and adults alike even though there was probably more times in the water than on the board. A 7... More

We visited at Christmas and tried the surfing... great fun. This time we tried the white water rafting.... my children are 14,12 and 8. Great experience but not for the faint hearted! Our guide in the boat was excellent and so skillful controlling the raft. We all loved it and look forward to doing it again!

Almost in the middle of the desert! White water rafting, kayaking, surfing & high ropes. Most of the staff are very friendly & knowledgeable, the western staff were a bit surly. Highly recommended if you love watersports.
