Experience spectacular views of Dubai’s skyscrapers, beaches and architectural wonders on a 40-minute seaplane flight. Step aboard a state-of-the-art Cessna seaplane and thrill as you swoop around top Dubai attractions such as the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al-Arab and palm-shaped island archipelago of the Palm Jumeirah. Continue your flight over The World to see how its islands mark out countries and continents from above, and fly over Jebel Ali, Dubai Marina and other landmarks. Choose from two takeoff locations and three departure times from each to suit your schedule.
  • 45-minute seaplane flight with transport from central Dubai

  • Glide over Dubai’s man-made archipelagos including Palm Jumeirah and The World
  • See Dubai Marina and the busy ports of Jebel Ali and Port Rashid
  • Choose one of four start times to suit your schedule

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa, on this 40-minute seaplane flight-only tour, with return transfers.
Choose from two take-off locations — Jebel Ali or Dubai Creek — and select from the three departure times at each location when you book. Then, make your own way to the takeoff point for your 40-minute seaplane flight.

Meet your professional pilot and admire your aircraft: a modern Cessna seaplane that takes off from and lands on water. 

Get a safety briefing and take a seat inside the shared plane. Put on your seatbelt and feel your heart lift as your plane gathers speed on the water and rises above the Dubai coastline.

Have your camera ready as you soar around the Burj Khalifa and sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel. Snap photos of the palm-tree-shaped archipelago of the Palm Jumeirah; and look down on The World, the stunning 300 or so sandy islands built in the outline of a world map.

Swoop over Port Rashid and hover above Dubai Creek and the Deira and Bur Dubai neighborhoods as your pilot points out the landmarks.

Then, glide over the skyscrapers and luxury yachts of Dubai Marina, and circle the golden beaches, golf courses and ships and cranes of the Jebel Ali port area.

Finally, thrill as your Cessna turns and glides back along the coast toward Jumeirah and Dubai.

After roughly 40 minutes in the air, land safely on the water and say goodbye to your pilot. Your seaplane experience then ends at the original start point.
