In fact we enjoyed a lot The location of the counter in the marina is clear and not tricky The staff were very helpful, responsible, funny, patient and safe. Special thanks to the philippenes guide who took for us pictures (he suggested) and to the skeaper who drove patiently After this experience i decided that the speedboat is much more fun than the yacht

We have been here in Dubai for over a month and this was the best experience we have had. The guide was excellent and made the experience memorable. We took a couple with us that had lived here for 14 years and they were amazed at the things we saw. This is a must do when traveling here.

Stress free experience, easy to find the kiosk, Raj was an excellent host/pilot, gave lots of interesting information, took photos for use. A truly memorable and enjoyable experience.

It was an amazing experience, we recommend you Karim as a guide, he is really nice and took pictures and videos for us without asking him. Thank you for this great moment.

I had a great experience, these were some of the best jet-skis I have ever ridden. Much better than any other out on the water where we were.
