    The Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab Boat Tour gives you breath-taking views of Dubai’s amazing skyline from the water. To join the tour, make your way to Dubai Marina Walk to board your craft.

    This trip takes place in a high-power speed boat but for this sightseeing tour your speed will not exceed 26 knots! As you cruise northward from the Marina with the wind in your hair, spectacular views of Dubai’s coastline will appear along the horizon and your skipper will point out the main highlights.

    You will see the amazing Palm Jumeirah, an artificially created island in the shape of a palm tree. The island is designed for developments of unprecedented luxury including villas, resorts, hotels and fabulous shopping malls. One of the earliest buildings to be completed was the fantastic Atlantis Resort, situated at the ‘top of the palm tree’ and overlooking the Arabian Gulf. The boat will stop for 5 minutes in front of the Atlantis for a photo opportunity and commentary.

    Further up the coast you will see the Madinat Jumeirah, a splendid Arabian-themed resort, and the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel. Designed to resemble the sails of an Arabian dhow, Burj Al Arab soars to a height of 321 meters and dominates Dubai's coastline. There will be another 5 minute photo stop at Burj Arab so that you can admire this incredible piece of architecture.

    Your boat returns to Dubai Marina at the end of the 75-minute cruise, and you should make your own arrangements for getting to your next destination.
