Cool action in front of a fantastic backdrop! After a slow stroll through the marina, it really comes off after leaving it. Photo stops are made at the hot spots. The crew is friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Really fun and really fast. I recommend buying some goggles so you can see because the wind make it hard to see of you aren’t wearing glasses or goggles.

Very nice tour with very nice guides! Well organised! Sitting in the first row is great fun!

Really good (relatively short but sweet) drive around The Palm, with some adrenaline kick

Great experience and fun activity. You can see the whole of Dubai Marina
