Full description
Marvel at the illuminations of Dubai Mall Fountain Show on a 30-minute cruise by "abra" water taxi. A captivating water, music and light spectacle in Downtown Dubai, the Dubai Fountain is the world’s tallest performing fountain. At over 900 feet in length (274 meter), the Dubai Fountain is situated on the 30-acre (120,000 m2) Burj Lake and performs to a selection of different melodies.

Climb aboard the traditional wooden boat on Burj Lake, and cruise past some of the city's most iconic monuments, such as the Burj Khalifa, Souk Al Bahar, and Palace. Admire the city's stunning skyline from the water, before you take position for a grandstand view of the illuminations. With only 6 people per boat, you are able to admire the visual spectrum of over 1,000 water expressions from an exclusive and intimate perspective. 

Watch in awe as the fountains light up during a visual spectacle that features 6,000 lights, 25 colored projectors, and 22,000 gallons (83,000 liters) of airborne water! See a stunning choreography of light and water synced to classical, Arabic, and world music that will leave you breathless.
