Our taxi arrived 30 minutes late at our hotel and could not find the meeting point. We arrived a few minutes late. They were kind enough to wait for us. Extra staff on board, very caring for us. Magnificent boat, all comfort, extra BBQ, unlimited drink. Super nice swim with the hot shower that awaits us when we go up. We were 4 children and 4 adults and all loved it. Great excursion

A superb excursion in the Marina with a view of the Burj Al Arab, the Ferris wheel, passing through the interior of the Palm resort. Large, well-equipped boat and Peter and his crew are attentive to customers, discreet but present. They met all of our expectations. A beautiful 4 hour walk, to recommend….

Extraordinary experience, the crew really takes care, they took the time to explain the operation of the excursion to us. At each stop, we had the right to explanations and a break for photos. Excellent meal, swimming is also to do. Really great memories. Thanks to Captain Peterson and his crew Hussain, Pradeep, Roya, Jill and Kalish who were great.
