Great tour around the palm & past the Burj Al Arab and Atlantis, I booked this to fill a couple of hours one afternoon it was a great choice, as we were being given our safety briefing and life vests our guide made us aware that the water was quite choppy out of the marina & bay, this just added to the fun, you got a great sense of the speed & the pilot guided us into several waves to create masses of spray, great views and a great tour, the boat stopped in front of several landmarks & the guide took our pictures. Good speedboat ride, good views, would definitely recommend.

The activity was great. My teens enjoyed it particularly. Some information on the main sightseeing points was given but it would have been great to have some more.

Very nice experience and what I liked most is that the guys working there were very punctual. We did not have to wait any extra min to do our activity.

Great fun for adults and teenage boys. Stopped for photo shoots and a little info at key points along the way. Would highly recommend

Excellent hosts, very friendly and definitely caring whilst on board ensuring everyone was happy. 100% would go again
