Abu Dhabi looks at its best from the sea, with its futuristic towers and domes rising into the sky. This RIB (rigid-inflatable boat) cruise lets you combine the panoramas with a high-speed boat ride. Hold tight as you power across the waters, and slow down for photos of the Corniche skyscrapers, Emirates Palace, and more. Upgrade to a longer cruise that passes the Grand Mosque for an extended city overview.
What to Expect
Book your preferred option and greet your skipper at Abu Dhabi Marina. Then, following a safety briefing, put on a life jacket and board your powerful RIB, with the skipper at the helm.

Hold the safety rail as your craft pulls into the marina bay and admire the opulent, 114-domed 5-star Emirates Palace hotel. Feel the wind in your hair as your boat accelerates and race along the coast past the Heritage Village and palm-dotted Corniche.

Take photos of the scenery as your RIB slows, and if you’ve selected the longer cruise, cruise further for views of the lavish Presidential Palace and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Hear about the city’s history and architecture from your skipper, and watch for dolphins as you sail around Lulu Island, an artificial islet of golden beaches.

Lastly, savor the widescreen cityscapes before an exhilarating ride back to the marina where your experience ends.

Great skipper and cruise

We took the 60 minute Corniche tour. Danny and Ali were very welcoming and we had a great time. We would have liked the weather to have been less hazy. We hope to return next year and take the 90 minute mosque tour. Highly recommended....More

60 Minute Tour - Corniche, Lulu Island etc

Thanks to Daniel we had a great tour of the waterfront. A fun way to see and learn more about Abu Dhabi by boat. We would definitely recommend Yellow Boats or book another tour ourselves.
