Overall rating

based on 18,339 reviews

Overall the experience was fantastic! We arrived late due to traffic but they waited, which was very helpful. Could’ve done with a more vegan/vegetarian friendly menu but other than that, definitely worth the money

Really fun and really fast. I recommend buying some goggles so you can see because the wind make it hard to see of you aren’t wearing glasses or goggles.

Very good whistle stop trip as described The on board guides were very knowledgeable -friendly and keen to help taking photos etc

We really enjoyed the dinner and the music was very nice and appropriate for Christmas eve.

Great experience and fun activity. You can see the whole of Dubai Marina
