Why not experience the majestic beauty of Dubai and/or Abu Dhabi from the sky!
Visiting Dubai and Abu Dhabi by vehicle or foot can sure be a great experience for any traveler, but taking a quick look at UAE’s two popular cities onboard an aircraft is sure to be an adventure. It is a great way to discover the emirates through awe-inspiring excursions from the air.
There are opportunities to fly in a seaplane over the UAE for a unique experience. Passengers on board a seaplane can capture breathtaking views of the city from a bird’s eye perspective; the experience is unlike any other aircraft with exhilarating sea takeoffs and landings.
The Cessna 208 amphibian aircrafts that are normally used have a comfortable air-conditioned cabin with luxury leather seats, each with their own large viewing window.
Seaplane charter services are available along the Persian/Arabian Gulf on board 9-passenger seaplanes. Particular excursions can be booked on floatplanes—a type of seaplane that uses slender pontoons (known as “floats”) mounted under the fuselage to provide buoyancy.
Seaplane tours (30 minutes) depart from Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club and end at Al Majaz Waterfront. The Dubai skyline voyage takes sightseers to see attractions like Port Rashid, Palm Jumeriah, Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa, and more.
In addition, visitors can book unique seaplane tours from Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club (a 45-minute seaplane flight) for aerial views of Emirates Palace, Ferrari World and the Formula 1 Grand Prix Circuit (Yas Marina), and many other landmarks.
A seaplane adventure is ideal for those that are interested in a skyline panoramic tour over Dubai and its incredible metropolitan city center, or else to head into the skies for an aerial excursion to Abu Dhabi and back. While in route, journeyers can spot all the world-famous sights.
Those fearful of a water aircraft have also the choice to go in a helicopter for a tour of the city. Some heli-companies offer aerial scenic tours in Dubai and across the UAE.
Helicopter scenic tours are of various length; some depart from Dubai Creek and take passengers onboard to see the following sites:
* Dubai Creek
* The wind towers in Bur Dubai
* Dubai Creek Golf Course
* The Jumeirah coastline
* Burj Khalifa
* The traditional areas of old Dubai
Other tours visit the following routes
* Burj Al Arab
* Jumeirah Beach Hotel
* Wild Wadi
* The World
* The Palm Jumeirah
* Atlantis Hotel
Dubai and Abu Dhabi offer incredible opportunities for a vacation to remember. Whether by car, foot or plane and helicopter, there is no time for boredom.
