The area
Neighborhood: 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.

DO NOT GO WITH THIS BOAT HIRE!
Jul 2020 • Couples
Would not reccomend this boat hire at all. Was very excited for our boat trip, we booked 2 hours and when we were out at sea we struggled a lot to put the steps back onto the boat so wasn’t able to jump off and swim in the Sea. As we left the port we spent about 25 minutes waiting for big boats to come in before we could even start our journey to one of the beaches. After only spending about 5 minutes at the beach and struggling a lot putting the anchor out, we went the wrong way and got a bit lost out at sea so tried phoning the company who were very understanding on the phone and said to take our time and that it wasn’t a problem and specifically said to go extra slow when approaching the port. We got back ok and safely and went to the desk to collect our £100 deposit. The man was very abrupt and rude and told us that his manager has “gps” on the bats which was hard to believe and told us we had to pay an extra hour even though we were only 20 minutes late. Over all had an awful experience and wasn’t worth the money in the end.

experience could have been better

The boat's engine was damaged, so it couldn't go fast enough to wakeboard. Already out in the sea, we were forced to switch to wake surfing due the poor conditions of the boat. This could (and should) have been avoid with better communication and transparency at the time of the booking. Driver was nice and experienced, and despite the mentioned upset we had a good afternoon

Excellent views of Atlantis and Burj Al Arab
May 2017 • Family
Good experience. Don’t go for “The World” island visit. Nothing is there. Cover Atlantis, Bur Al Arab and swimming in sea is a must. 2 hours should suffice for the tour.

Awesome wake-surfing team in Dubai
Apr 2017 • Friends
I've been wake surfing for 2 years now, started in Dubai with Sea Riders, and I still massively look forward to coming here to do it as often as possible. They had boats at the Marina and at the Creek's marina by the Park Hyatt and the golf club. I used to surf at the Marina, but now prefer the Creek as the water is usually calmer although it's not the open sea and the great views from surfing by the Burj el Arab!

The team at Sea Riders are all great and really know their stuff. Amr, Karim, and Anura are super professional, friendly, and fun to be on the water with. Can't recommend them highly enough. They take out a lot of wake boarders too, but I'm sticking to surfing. If you haven't tried this yet, you should. It's a great sport but very zen too.

A must do in Dubai!
Mar 2014
This is a definitely a must do in Dubai. Had an amazing time with them both wakeboarding and fishing. Extremely professional staff that make the experience a memorable one. The instructor is so good and patient, got me up wakeboarding from the first try and since then I became addicted. Also went fishing with them and they were so on top of it, they took us to the right spots and provided everything we needed. Very family friendly as well. They also offer great water cruises around the landmarks of Dubai and they even do wake surfing. It's a great one stop shop for all water activities. Perfect for both tourists and residents of Dubai.
