Park Hyatt Dubai

The view from here

One really popular outdoor activities to do while in the Dubai Marina is cruising along the Palm Jumeirah coastline.

 On a yacht, under the sun, in a vast blue expanse, things could look different – not like the way they are from the road or up in the sky.

It could just be the waves and the outstretched vastness or things are just not the same from the sea – they are majestically breathtaking, seen in contrast with the turquoise water.

For instance, has it ever occurred to you that the Atlantis The Palm, with its somewhat yawning upturned spade façade, could take you in for a waiting refuge, a kingdom, if you will, where nymphs dance in the water with Poseidon ?

This and more as you hop on board any of Al Wasl Yachts’ fleet of nine boats, which includes a 30-foot fishing vessel and luxury yachts the size of which ranges from 33 feet to 85 feet in length, and furnished with everything meant to provide modern comfort from a bedroom to a kitchen, a dining area, a sun deck and a mini pool.

The experienced crew takes guests through the Dubai Marina channel and off to the coastline where it passes by Palm Islands Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Residency, One&Only Palm, Zabeel Zaray, Atlantis The Palm, Kempinski Hotel, Royal Amwaj, Rixos The Palm, and Burj Al Arab Hotel.

The yacht takes a quick photo-shoot stops Atlantis The Palm and Burj Al Arab hotel before heading back on a slow cruise around The Palm, which is also popularly called Palm Islands Dubai. Along the way area slew of water sport outdoor activities and a fleet of more yachts coming out into the open sea with their merrymakers.

A regular cruise takes up an average of two hours with refreshments served on board. Five-star gourmet catering can also be arranged for an extra charge.

It brings comfort to note that Al Wasl Yachts, which docks its fleet at the Dubai Marina, is among pioneers in the yacht rental business, having been founded by Ishrat Ali Khan, group managing director, who has 16 years of work in hospitality and tourism.

The company has an ISO 9001:2008 certification. Enquiries and reservations: Call +971 4 295 9477, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit
