What people are saying about Dubai Marina

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 32,477 reviews

The people who were checking us in outside the boat were rude, I don't understand why they allowed those people to check people in. Anyway enough about those people because the moment we were inside that's when I saw real and nice people, we were welcomed inside the boat with drinks, the people inside the boat were very very friendly and welcoming. Ooh there was music and entertainment, really enjoyed. The food was nice and tasty, really enjoyed the traditional boat.

The yacht was clean and tidy, the crew professional, attentive to passengers. Great views from all locations of the yacht, including a/c saloon, nice bbq meal. We were around 15-20 people, space enough for everybody, not feeling crowdy. This trip is rather for people, willing to enjoy the seaside sighseeing, instead of loud party seekers (yet there was a music, so not a dramatic silence onboard). We had a great time, highly recommend.

Picked up at hotel on time with a second pick up along the way went very smoothly. Yacht lovely with traditional music playing, plenty of room on board for the 10 guests. Guide very knowledgeable and very pleasant to talk too. You get to see some amazing hotels and get close to many famous landmarks near the palm. Food was ok in my opinion, would recommend the trip.

Definitely worth buying a 2 or 3 day ticket and doing the different routes on separate days, as this gives one enough time to hop off and on at leisure. Cold bottled water supplied for free, so no need to bring your own.

Very fun and fast nice views and you can take good photo’s
