Thank you for a fun trip. And for kindly letting us know it might be rough water so our little ones didn’t go. The big kids loved it. We had to wait for a taxi so for future travellers not staying at the palace you might want to book a return taxi to meet you at the gate you came in. Otherwise a really fun trip!

We set off for a tour around the marina at around 5pm, close to sunset. Our guide, Ali, was amazing, full of information about the city, and the history of Abu Dhabi. He also helped us get the best photos of the skyline and the presidential palace, from the water. I highly recommend this tour!

Great way to see Abu Dhabi's beautiful coastline

We booked this for our first day in Abu Dhabi, not realising how tired we'd be from the flight out. After a quick power nap in our hotel, we dragged ourselves to the harbour in the scorching heat, feeling reluctant about whether we'd enjoy it. After being warmly greeted by our captain, we soon found our senses lifted as the fresh sea air cut through the hot, humid day. With the wind blowing in our faces, and the occasional splash of salty sea spray, we had an absolute blast. If you're looking for the best view of Abu Dhabi's coastline, along with a splash of excitement, I highly recommend this experience... Thank you for such a great start to our holiday!
