In a city of such eclectic diversity there’s hundreds of potential Dubai excursions. Indulge in one of the most luxurious and exclusive experiences by taking a Dubai seaplane charter that provides panoramic views of all the city’s architectural marvels. This private tour has space for up to nine passengers. Each guest enjoys a broad comfortable seat with a large private viewing window, meaning uninterrupted views over the city, desert, and sea.
The cabin is air-conditioned and the skilled pilot has thousands of hours flying time, something that helps maintain our zero incident history.
Dubai Creek: The shimmering waters of Dubai Creek are where the UAE’s first ever airport was located. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, luxury seaplanes would land here on their long journey from Britain to India. It was the era’s most elite method of travel. Fast-forward to modern times and the seaplane experience has been revived in all its pomp and razzmatazz. A beautiful water take-off helps recreate these historic journeys, using the same strip of water as the first plane to ever take-off from Dubai.
The skyline has changed dramatically since the 1940s but as the plane ascends you’ll still get a genuine sense of the city’s history and heritage. And after your scenic loop of the city, you’ll swoop back and enjoy a beautiful landing back at the Dubai Creek.
Dubai Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa: Adding an additional scent of exclusivity is private transfer to the departure point at the Dubai Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa, a chance to indulge in the sights from the ground before you ascend into the blue Dubai sky. Refreshments are served before you board your flight.
Every Seawings private tour includes road transfers to make your journey hassle free.
