90 min tour
oliviarshaw1, 11-09-2022
We were recently on one of the 90 min boat rides. Our tour guide was chamika and the captain was Ronald. The guys were fab, constantly asking us if we were okay with the speed (let me tell you, it’s very fast and bouncy but also fab!). Always asking if we need anymore water. Really nice guys.
The tour was also great, good to see Dubai from the water.
Chamika took plenty photos of us with the landmarks behind us.
Would highly recommend :)
Great little Tour!

The tour guy was friendly and informative. He told us all about Dubai and the surrounding area. As it was such a hot day he was always making sure we were ok and offering bottled water. Lots to see and the time went so quickly!

That was the craziest ride I experienced in Dubai.. Great view of skyline of Dubai, possibility to take photos of Burj al Arab, Atlantis hotel on Jumeirah Palm and very interesting facts told by the skipper. I trully recommend this atraction to everyone.
Fantastic trip

What a fantastic trip this was, led by Joy and the captain (sorry, I didn't catch your name). Joy provided a lovely commentary as we went slowly through the marina pointing out the sights before the throttle was opened up just as we got to Bluewater Island.

The speedy bit was excellent and wasn't as bumpy as I thought it would be especially given the disclaimer you have to sign! The boat stops for a few photo ops and because I didn't fancy walking to the front of the boat, Joy got the captain to turn the boat so that I could still get that special photo, which I really appreciated.

The service everyone gave from booking a place to leaving the boat was second to none plus I loved the fact you could get bottles of cold water too (or Dubai wine as Joy referred to it!), which given how hot it was that day, was very much appreciated!
An excellent tour

Amazing tour of Dubai! Kelvin the guide was very helpful and friendly and knew some interesting facts about Dubai. I recommend taking the 5pm tour then you can enjoy the floodlit skyline on your return. Sojesh the captain also made some exciting turns!
Could Do Better
Tamara_H, 30-12-2022
The crew on the boat was very friendly but the ride was incredibly rocky - at some points we flew several feet in the air - to the point of being unpleasant. The “tour”/explanations were quite limited. Worthwhile if you are very keen on the speedboat experience but otherwise not really worth it.
