This boat trip is worthwhile doing if you are quick visit to Dubai- the boat trip shows you all the main sites to be seen and lasts approx 90 mins- is quite expensive but worth it in my opinion. We had a tour guide with a great sense of humour- made it so enjoyable

There are a number of boat tours available on the Marina. In the end, we went with the yellow boat tours and I'm delighted we did. We did the 90 minute tour. Ruwan was our skipper and he was fantastic. He was so funny and was able to share so much knowledge on the sights in Dubai. It's a really... More

I took this tour with a couple of friends and we had a great morning! Our guide was friendly and gave us nuggets of info along the way. The boat was comfortable and we were lucky to have it all to ourselves! It was well worth the time and price!! A must-see for sure

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
