This trip gets off to a glamorous start in the marina at the Emirates Palace – one of the most luxurious hotels in the world. From here, once you’ve grabbed a photo or two of the grand red building, you’ll set out on a speedboat tour of Abu Dhabi’s coastline. Cutting a path through the surf, you’ll swoop around the bay until you pull up alongside the Heritage Village – a reconstruction of a traditional desert settlement. There’s no time to stop though, as you power alongside the curving, skyscraper-backed Corniche. Next, you’ll head to open water to circle the 1,000-acre Lulu Island, a manmade stretch just off the shoreline. As you come close to the hour mark, you’ll plot a course back to the Emirates Palace where your captain will drop anchor.
Just so you know the minimum age for this tour is 12 years. The maximum time spent out on the speedboat is 1 hour, the remainder of the duration of the tour is made up of travel and the safety briefing.
