Tour description provided by Viator

Make the most of your time in Dubai port by taking an exhilarating seaplane ride over the city! This unforgettable 40-minute flight includes a water take-off and landing, plus aerial views of Dubai’s flagship landmarks, such as the luxury archipelago of Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest skyscraper.

When your cruise ship docks at Dubai port, meet your pilot and then walk to your state-of-the-art seaplane – a Cessna amphibian aircraft that not only flies, but skims water too. Hop aboard and take to the skies from the Arabian Gulf itself, skimming Dubai’s shimmering coastline.

The 40-minute flight flies directly above Dubai’s iconic developments, like Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper, and the Burj Al Arab Hotel – a prestigious sail-shaped building with an impressive accolade of the world’s only 7-star hotel.

Glide above the man-made Palm Jumeirah islands, enjoying perfect aerial views of the tree-shaped archipelago that juts out to sea, and then cruise over to The World – another artificial archipelago comprising nearly 300 luxurious islands formed like the continents of the world. Head back inland and soar above Dubai Creek, seeing how it splits the city into its two main neighborhoods -- Deira and Bur Dubai.

Fly above Dubai Marina, a glitzy canal area lined by luxury yachts and waterfront skyscrapers, as well as the bustling port of Jebel Ali. This maritime marvel is not only Dubai’s trade hub, but it’s also one of the world’s busiest ports. Soar above its cargo ships and then turn around and glide back to the start point. Finish flight on a high note, with an exhilarating sea landing.
