Swooping above the city in a seaplane, this trip gives you a rare birdseye view of Dubai’s stunning skyline. You’ll clamber aboard an amphibious aircraft at Port Rashid, just a short drive from your cruise ship, before taking off and climbing high above the hotels and beaches below. Your pilot will bank south along the coastline, passing the sail-like Burj Al Arab and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Keep an eye out for The World along the coastline – a manmade scattering of islands, designed to look like a world map. Further along, you’ll see the modern heart of the city at Dubai Marina, plus the palm frond effect of the Palm Jumeirah. Once you’ve circled the city, it’s back to the port for a smooth sea landing. Keep an eye on the weather if you’re booking. Flights can be cancelled last minute if conditions change.
Just so you know, you'll need to bring your passport or a copy of your passport for the flight.
