We had a great time with Daniel when we tried the Yellow Boats. He is so knowledgeable about the city. The boat was safe and it was fun. He was offering something to drink while we were on board. Daniel is so pleasant and so accommodating. It was a 45 minute tour around Abu Dhabi. And also, it was Daniel's... More

We had a great time on the Yellow Boats tour along the coast. Our captain was friendly and informative and the boat itself was very comfortable. It was great to see the city from the sea.

I loved this 90 minute trip- Jozef was the skipper and was very professional and quite funny. We went to out of the marina and were able to get great views of Burj Al Arab, the Palm, & the Atlantis. He also told us interesting facts and tips that I hadn't heard anywhere else. Jozef offered to take photos of... More

They are professional not only in tour operating but also in the support team. I booked this tour by email a week prior my trip to Dubai. The support team replied my email promptly and assist me to book the tour in advance. It was very surprising when on 27.11.2016 at 15:00 hrs I arrived at the yellow boats station... More

A great trip to take to see Dubai from the water. The trip takes you along the mariba and out past JBR / The Walk, around The Palm and over to the Burj Al Arab. Great host, shares interesting information and takes photos on your own devices. My third trip on this boat trip and no doubt, will do again... More

Loved this experience! We did this on our first day to get a feel for the city! We did the 90 minute tour and it only felt like 20 minutes. Absolutely great with a great host.

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
