I did the 90 minute trip, and can say this has to be the best way (without skydiving) to see the Palm.
It all starts slowly, then when leaving the harbour area the throttle is applied and the fun begins. You can feel the speed, and the bumps as well. This has to be the best way of touring the area, seeing the main hotels by going all the way around the palm, and then coming back on the inside.
Would recommend to all if can handle a not so comfortable ride. The only downside was we could hardly hear the commentary, the guy mumbled his way through.

This was a fantastic tour with very helpfull and courteous staff, they made the tour a lot of fun while being very informative about the famous landmarks at the same time.

The guide took the time to take photo's for all on board at each of the landmarks.

I would highly recommend "Splash" to anyone.

Best regards

Great value trip and you really get a different perspective of Dubai. The boys are helpful, knowledgable and know how to handle a boat at speed safely. A good fun way to spend an hour and a half.

We had booked this trip prior to our visit to Dubai through get your guide. We just thought that it would be a chilled laid back boat trip around Dubai. This was just AMAZING. The thrill that we got from this totally blew us away. Highly recommended.

We booked this tour for myself, my two sons and my sister who lives in Dubai but had never taken a speedboat here. When we arrived, we were not offered water and, as a matter of fact, the boat driver asked the guide about the water and he just shook his head (although we watched them load the water into the cooler as we disembarked). The tour basically leaves the marina and stops in front of Atlantis and then the Burg Al Arab. The guide came up to the middle of the boat and talked about limited facts that could have been easily learned on line and directed his commentary to the front of the boat so we could not hear in the back two rows (only five rows). He actually pointed out a restaurant that is closed! I did ask twice what was said and got a response once. It is just basically a boat ride around the Palm and back and in no way a sightseeing tour which was not what we expected based on the description, otherwise we would have taken the ferry!

The speedboat tour of Palm Jumeirah was really enjoyable. The tour was fun, safe and great way to see the sights.

The captain of our speedboat was friendly and informative. He showed us what the boat could do as we sped away from the marina, bouncing across the waves. He stopped the boat at regular intervals to allow us to take pictures and to tell us about the various buildings along the coastline.

The tour includes photo stops at the Dubai-Eye, Jumeirah Bay, Atlantis, and Burj Al Arab. We also got a stop to take pictures of the sunset which was great from the water.

The tour was exhilarating and traveled quickly at times (as you would expect for a speedboat). It always felt safe however and I was comfortable that the captain had the boat under control and knew the limits especially when the waterway became busier. Passengers are issued with a lightweight life jacket and wearing one is mandatory.

There were two tours which took place at the same time, presumably to offer greater capacity. I believe that we had the better experience, by chance, as our driver seemed to cover more distance, and used the wake of the other vessel to give us a few more 'thrills and spills' along the way.

The young caption was good at taking pictures on behalf of the passengers and helped capture the best of the backgrounds. He did so without any hesitation and unlike such tours in other parts of the world did not expect any tip in return for being so helpful.

I would strongly recommend this tour, it is fun and as per above a quite a different way to see so many properties around the Palm. You also get to see part of Dubai Marina on the way out and back in.

The starting point is very easy to locate and our Taxi driver had no problem dropping us close by. The Splash tours organisers do not require paper-tickets and you can instead show the QR code on your phone.

There is a small stowage place on board for bags and backpacks, you would be sensible to avoid taking very much on the boat and would equally advised to keep a tight hold of you camera.

We did the 4:15pm which in February was a perfect time to capture the sunset and see the Marina by both day and night. Once the sun went down, the speed of the boat did make it somewhat cool, with both wind and spray from the sea, so don't underestimate your clothing i.e. swimwear plus a t-shirt as a minimum.

This trip was only £35 and lasted 90 minutes. The skipper and his mate were very friendly and very informative about the places you could see.

Various photo stops along the way, a bit of speed in the RHIB and some free water seems a simple idea, but it's good fun.

I would thoroughly recommend.
