The bustling emirate of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is a great travel destination and place to rent a boat. With the upcoming International Boat Show and 2020 World Expo taking place in the city, many visitors will be flooding to Dubai and will require things to do while in the city. Luckily, there are tons of water experiences and boating opportunities to enjoy in Dubai, with some of the top captains on GetMyBoat.
Cruising in luxury in this modern city of skyscrapers is the ultimate way to enjoy a trip to Dubai. Captained charters are a popular choice and enable even non-experienced boating enthusiasts to have all the joys of boating, without the stress of controlling the boat. Yacht charters and boat rentals can include all sorts of luxuries, like food and drinks on board, water toys, stops for swims, and sightseeing the hot spots of Dubai. Dhow dinner cruises are an especially popular option - enjoy delicious food while watching the sunset on board.
Sightseeing by yacht is a popular choice since you can sit back and relax instead of trekking through the sun and heat of Dubai. Enjoy sights like the Sheikh Palace, the lagoon, skydive, the World Islands, the idyllic Dubai marina, and the Atlantis Hotel. All these places in Dubai are quite a sight to behold from the water.
Staying overnight on a yacht instead of a hotel is also an option for visitors to Dubai - cruises can even go to Oman, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and other nearby destinations. Sleep in a lovely estate room and journey around amazing cities in the Middle East on overnight yacht charters from Dubai.
One of the most popular tourist activities in Dubai is a jet ski tour. Nothing beats flying around at high speeds around the sights of Dubai, crashing through the waves and enjoying the breeze of the Persian Gulf. Rent a jet ski for two passengers to ride around with your travel buddies, or find a jet ski for one to enjoy some solo exploring. Group tours are a fun way to see the sights and jet skiing is a surefire way to get the adrenaline pumping. Watch skydivers tumble out of planes above you or check out the World Islands, and get an incredible view of the Dubai waterfront from the perspective of the waves.
Dubai is a hub for extreme sports enthusiasts. Skydiving, parasailing, wakeboarding, scuba diving, and more await you in Dubai, perfect for adventurous travelers who like to push their limits in a new place. Earn your PADI scuba certification on a scuba charter, or even get up-close with predators of the deep on a shark tour. Wing diving is another way to enhance your snorkeling experience, or you can fly (literally) over the waves with a parasailing tour in Dubai.
For active travelers who enjoy exercise during their adventures should consider renting a paddleboard or kayak to power yourself around the Dubai waterfront. Get in a workout while seeing the sights, leaving from Palm Jumeirah and see the Atlantis, Burj Al Arab, and the Burj Khalifa, all the spots you'll want to snap some photos of during a visit to Dubai.
