Tried out: A Boat Trip with Xclusive Tours Dubai

A couple of days ago we had tried out Xclusive Tours Dubai.  Xclusive Tours is located at the Dubai Marina Walk, close to the City Premiere Marina Hotel / La Verda Hotel or if you come from the main road it is basically behind the Radisson Blu Hotel.

The boats they are using are RIB boats ( Rigid Inflatable Boats) which, they have quiet powerful engines and you really get a very speedy ride with them.  We tried out the 90 minutes Trip  which takes you from the Marina around the Palm Island where you can see the various Hotels on the Crescent and you also get a stunning view on JBR and the Marina, ideal for taking pictures if you are into that. The Boat stops close to the Atlantis Hotel giving you another chance for cool selfies and different view on the City. After this the boat follows the Palm Island down to the Atlantis Hotel, giving you the best view of this iconic Dubai Landmark.

We were 8 people in the small blue speed boat including the driver which is a really nice low number compared to these full RTA rides where you are lucky to have a chance to get a clear picture at all.

For us this 90 Minutes boar trip was a really cool experience. We appreciated the nice different angle you get to see on Dubai by looking at it from the Water. The ever-changing skyline gives you always things you might have not seen from the roads or Metro. This is a fun ride but can be a bit bumpy if the see is rough. I had partially the feeling of being dizzy from all that shaking, but in the end the trip and what you get to see is certainly worth it.

Xclusive Tours Dubai is offering this 90 Minute trip four times a day starting at 10:30, 12:30, 14:30 and 16:30. You can book the tickets online on their website which I would recommend given the few seats available per trip.  On the money side this trip will set you back 200AED per person for adults, kids from 5-12 years pay only 150AED which is a fair deal for the stunning views of Dubai.
