A regular cruise from the Dubai Marina and around the Palm Jumeirah takes two (2) hours. Since our rates are on a per hour basis, you can request for a longer cruise especially when you want to swim or snorkel in the seas of Dubai after seeing all the iconic landmarks like the Burj Al Arab and Atlantis The Palm. Fishing trips run for minimum of four (4) hours. It takes at least 15 to 30 minutes to get to the deep sea where the fishes are abundant. Fishing also takes longer as we need to check the fishing gear, patiently wait for the fishes to bite, and eventually cook and eat your catch onboard the yacht.
Booking ahead is always ideal. During the peak season from October to early May, we recommend that you book at least 3 to 4 days before your trip. Let us know all your requirements so we can prepare a great trip for you.
