Splash Tours, Dubai

We took a tour with Splash Tours around the Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, Atlantis and Burj Al Arab for the duration of 90 minutes on a speedboat. The weather was great and we were all set for a thrilling ride. Living in UAE for 30+ years, we have been missing the best view.

Dubai Marina – We rode all around the marina and it was fascinating to get the best view and yes it’s from the sea! We remember this being a barren land 20 years ago and we use to explore it on a 4×4. Today, it’s a thriving area.

We return safely to the docking station! The Splash team was great and very informative of all the sites. They also gave out water on board.

The ride in the open sea was thrilling. It goes up to 30 knots and is smoother in the marina. It’s something every tourist and resident should experience. I’d highly recommend it!
