Full description
This approximately 45-minute seaplane excursion provides views of Dubai's iconic and unmistakable landmarks. After taking off from the calm waters of the Persian Gulf, soar past the sail-shaped Burj al Arab, said to be the most luxurious hotel in the world. Fly over the massive landworks project that is the Palm Jumeirah, the tree-shaped artificial island spreading its fronds into the gulf. Dip low over the World Islands, the multimillion dollar project to rebuild the world in miniature on the surface of the Persian Gulf, then turn back toward downtown and the Burj Khalifa, at 829 meters (2,723 feet), the tallest manmade structure in the world. Each seaplane has a capacity of 9 people only, with window seats for all 9 passengers. The enormous scale of these building projects is only truly appreciable from the air.

The trip was super great for two out of three tickets booked

The sightseeing flight was great even though it was a bit hazy. Unfortunately, the scenic flight was already over in the terminal for one of us. We had to show passports and AIDA had them. This was only to be read in the small print at the confirmation. An AIDA employee has switched on that the boarding cards abroad replace the passport. Nothing to do! Seawings was very uncooperative. Thank goodness we had a laminated copy that I could quickly get off the ship. So everyone, think of a copy of your passport, otherwise you will stop in the terminal.

40 minutes sightseeing flight .... a MUST !!!

An incredible experience! 40 minutes flight time !! Super smooth landing. We gladly took advantage of the opportunity to upgrade to a co-pilot on site. Great flight! you just have to experience it. We had booked an optional transfer ... unfortunately it didn't work out so well ... but is not organized by get your guide, but directly by the organizer (attention only possible in English). Means we were not picked up at 9:45 a.m. as agreed. Man tried to contact us at 10:10 a.m., but we had already hired a private taxi company, which was even more convenient and cheaper. (from the cruise terminal). Flight time had shifted slightly due to the visibility ... so plan a little more time! Our flight then agreed to fly anyway, because visibility was okay .... only the tip (antenna) of the Burj Khalifa was not so ... so really no big restriction! TOP!

That was the highlight of our Dubai trip.

The scenic flight over Dubai was breathtaking. Only from the air could the extent of Dubai and its beauty really be seen. Despite the hazy view, we took great photos. The pilot and the other staff were very friendly and took good care of us. The transfer was also great and the driver was very nice. We were very satisfied with the support provided by the team there. We would book it again at any time, only the price of 600 euros is a bit high.
