Itinerary

Your thrilling Seaplane Flight Over Abu Dhabi experience begins when you arrive at either the Yas Marina or the Emirates Palace hotel. (Guests can choose whether they would prefer to fly from YAS to YAS or from Emirates Palace to Emirates Palace.) On this 30-minute aerial tour, you’ll enjoy memorable views of the major landmarks of Abu Dhabi. Please note that check-in is 30 minutes before your flight time.

You’ll see the blazing red Ferrari World, the largest indoor theme park in the world, and the F1 Grand Prix Circuit.

You’ll soar over Khalifa Port, the state-of-the-art gateway to Abu Dhabi, and the Sheikh Zayed Bridge. This 2,762 foot long bridge is named after the country's principal architect and former president, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The curved arches evoke the undulating sand dunes of the desert.

You’ll see the Corniche, five miles of manicured waterfront that includes children’s play areas, separate cycle and pedestrian pathways, cafés and restaurants, and the Corniche Beach – a lifeguarded beach park.

Nature lovers will enjoy the sight of sweeping mangrove forests along the shoreline. These forests are an integral part of the coastal ecosystem in the UAE and provide a rich natural habitat and safe breeding grounds for several species of fish and sea birds.

You’ll fly over Nurai Island, a large natural island off the coast of Abu Dhabi that is being developed. Some of the most exclusive real estate in the world can be found on the island.

Upon completion of the seaplane tour, you will be brought back to either the Yas Marina or the Emirates Palace Hotel, according to your choice. From here, you are free to make your way back to your accommodation.
