Dubai Yacht Cruise
Duration: 2 Hours
Start your day with a peaceful yacht cruise along Dubai’s awe-inspiring coastline, taking in some of the majestic city sights on the way. From spectacular man-made islands and luxurious resorts to towering skyscrapers and striking modern architecture, Dubai is an inspiring desert metropolis which exceeds all expectations. This relaxing tour will reveal some of the city highlights from the sparkling waters of the Arabian Sea.
Sailing along the Persian Gulf coast during your holiday in Dubai is a wonderful way to relax and unwind, especially if you decide to cruise in comfort on a luxury yacht. Feel the sun on your face and the cool breeze in your hair as we leisurely glide along the coast, past some of the world’s most ambitious developments − The Palm and World Islands. Built in the shape of the Middle East’s endemic date palm tree, the three Palm Islands are the largest man-made islands in the world.
They were constructed with sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf and are a major tourist attraction, hosting a number of residential villas, luxury hotels, waterfront apartments, water theme parks, shopping malls, restaurants and cinemas. Shaped like the continents of the world, the World Islands stretch 9km wide and 7kms long and comprise 300 artificial islands divided into four categories - private homes, estate homes, luxury resorts and community islands. Created by Al Nakheel, one of the world’s leading developers, these incredible islands have to be seen to be believed. The world really is your oyster in Dubai.
Dubai’s urban development has taken many different forms over its 300 year-old history, but the emirate’s economic success over recent years has enabled the city to expand rapidly from a small traditional fishing village into an exciting cosmopolitan city. As we sail back towards the coast, marvel at some of the tallest buildings in the world, including the famous Burj Al Arab, one of the world’s most luxurious hotels. This majestic building stands on its very own man-made island, less than 300 meters from Jumeirah Beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. Designed to resemble a billowing sail, the hotel’s spectacular architectural design dominates Dubai’s coast and is a striking addition to the city skyline.
As we near the end of our voyage, you can see more ambitious modern architecture; some of which has been influenced by Islamic culture and traditions whilst representing Dubai’s great wealth, ambition and success in the 21st century. You will also see beautiful historical buildings which serve as a reminder of times gone by. This successful blend of the old and new makes Dubai one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Middle East. A scenic yacht cruise is one of the best ways to appreciate the city’s majestic coastline in all its glory.
