It's a beautiful ride and a very nice way of seeing Dubai from the sea with a guide. The service is excellent. We are constantly kept upto date with our booking. Imo it's a must do item when in Dubai.

I have been on the yellow boats twice now, once with my young family and once with my parents. Everyone thought it was brilliant. Really friendly informative crew, lovely to be out on the water, life jackets for everyone, we didn't get wet. It was fast enough to be exciting but not scary or uncomfortable. Thoroughly recommend this trip for... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
