What you can expect
Meet us at the Yacht Club at Sofitel Resort in Palm Jumeirah. Our friendly guides will welcome you with a short safety and operational briefing that is necessary to have an enjoyable adventure.
We will get you fitted with a life jacket and assign you to your own user-friendly personal watercraft, our signature Sea Camel mini speedboat. Make sure you prepare your favorite tunes on your phone as you can connect it to the Sea Camel’s built in audio system via Bluetooth! Once everybody is safely on board, we are ready to set out on Dubai’s iconic Sea Camel tour!
As you slowly follow your guide along luxury villas and resorts inside the protected waters of Palm Jumeirah, you will quickly learn to operate your boat. Pass under the east bridge to exit into the Arabian Gulf and get ready to test what the Sea Camels are capable of! Hold onto your hat, push the throttle to the max and zoom through the sea towards Burj Al Arab, our first destination!
Slow down and admire the icon of Dubai resembling the shape of a sail. This ultimate luxury resort is the world’s first and only 7-star hotel with room rates up to 15,000 USD per night. Moving onwards the beach we will pass by the palaces of the royal family. Consider yourself very lucky to get such a close look as this is a very private and restricted area. Make sure to be stealthy when taking photos as it is not allowed.
The tour will then take you past the private Logo Island owned by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. You will also see the Sheikh’s private mega yacht called ‘Dubai’, which is the world’s 2nd largest private yacht, moored behind the island.
On our way back to the base, we will follow the crescent of Palm Jumeirah, passing by luxury hotels such as Rixos, Anantara and Waldorf Astoria before entering into the Palm once again and arriving back to the Yacht Club.
