My mom, who was visiting, and I had a wonderful experience with Cap't Tony's! I live near Yas Marina, but had never tried this before. Erika, our captain, was very knowledgeable about the area, marine life and history of Abu Dhabi. Although there wasn't a sunset, Erika made up for it with extra time on the water and engaging stories... More

This was our third 'Island Beach Get Away'. Our adventure on Thursday afternoon with Captain Mohammed was a delight. If you have visitors in town - this is the trip that never fails to impress. Or, if you fancy a chilled afternoon away from the city - this ticks the box. We prefer to take out own picnic, enjoy the... More

My friend booked this trip as a treat for a few of us coming over to visit here. We were a group of 5 adults and 4 children aged 4, 6 and two aged at 10). We were told we would go to a deserted island, which would be set up with umbrellas for us and we should bring our... More

Dear Meesh1975, Thank you for taking the time to review your trip. I apologise for the long walk to the main beach - usually we're able to cruise over the shallow all the way to the beach when we go at high tide however it looks like the information we got from the charts that day weren't as accurate as...

Fantastic way to spend some time on a boat in Abu Dhabi if you don't have one! We had a great ride through the mangroves and had a swim on a really nice sandy area. We were very lucky to see a herd or Ghazals and a flock of Flamingos.

Great day out, very helpful staff, very accommodating. Highly recommended if you want to get out the city for a day. Combine the Island Beach Get Away with Stand Up Paddle Boarding (easier than one would imagine) and you've got yourself a great day out!

My parents went and they have put this as best experience in Abu Dhabi. I believe it is really something different with respect to excellent but repetitive spa+brunch+beach. Thanks Captain!!

Easy to book and the guide, Arabella, was so helpful and informative. During the tour was saw gazelles, dolphins, flamingoes, herons (and many other sea birds), mangroves up close and snorkelled off a deserted beach. The whole experience was magical and definitely worth doing.

We have used Captain Tony's a few times now when we have guests to stay. Great service and easy to deal with. The Island getaway cruise is great. We cannot fault it at all. Highly recommended. Many thanks and see you again soon. :)

Having visitors from overseas, one of the things on the to-do list was a boat trip to escape a bit of the heat and also see a different side of Abu Dhabi.
