Dubai Sunrise Seaplane Flight Including Dubai Creek Abra Boat Ride and City Sightseeing

Admire spectacular Dubai from the air, land and water on this small-group early morning seaplane flight and city tour. Just after sunrise, take off from the water in a seaplane and soar above Dubai landmarks including the Burj Al-Arab, The World archipelago and Dubai Creek. Then, enjoy a creek tour, riding a modern water taxi and wooden 'abra' boat to visit historical attractions such as the Spice Souk, Al Bastakiya district, Dubai Museum and more. This small-group tour is limited to nine people for a personalized experience.

Make your own way to the seaplane port in the early morning, and board your 9-passenger seaplane for your 25-minute, small-group flight over Dubai.


Get a safety briefing from your experienced pilot, and then thrill as your seaplane, a Cessna 208 Caravan, takes off from the water, rising above Dubai's skyscrapers and the Arabian Gulf in the beautiful early morning light.


Revel in the views as you soar up to 1,500 feet (457 meters) and glide over Dubai's icons, including the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al-Arab and The World, the man-made archipelago that resembles a world map.


Then, float above Dubai Creek as its winds between Bur Dubai and Deira, before landing back on the water to start your creek tour.


Board one of Dubai's sleek modern water taxis and enjoy an approximate 20-minute cruise along the creek, sipping complimentary tea and coffee as you go and hearing fascinating facts about the landmarks from your expert guide.


Then, step onto dry land and visit the Spice Souk. Absorb the bustle of this aromatic marketplace and then continue to the Gold Souk to browse the dazzling gold, platinum and jewelry stores of its narrow lanes.


Next, visit Dubai's Women's Museum, a center that celebrates women's role in the development of the UAE. Admire the photographs, art and exhibits, and afterward, hop onto a traditional wooden abra boat exclusively reserved for your small group to cruise to Bur Dubai, on the other side of the creek.

Admire the dhows the old-world wooden Arabian sail boats that still ply the waters, and step ashore to visit Dubai Museum, set in the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort. Head inside to chart Dubai's ancient roots and its transformation into a 21st-century metropolis, before peeking inside the nearby Textile Souk, full of vendors peddling bright-colored silks.

Lastly, wander through the old quarter of Al Bastakiya to see its maze-like lanes and windtower-topped buildings, and then stop to relax over complimentary tea and coffee.

Your tour then concludes here allowing you to continue sightseeing at your own pace or with a drop-off back at the Dubai Mall.
