Best Water Sports Tours in Dubai

Water sports in Dubai is unmatched and people often visit Dubai only to indulge in a list of enthralling sports. From underwater dives like Scuba and snorkelling to surface adventures like jetski, windsurfing, wakeboarding, kitesurfing, kneeboarding and banana boat etc. Apart from the nightlife, the sky-soaring buildings, and the opulent malls, if there is anything else people love in Dubai is the endless stretch of ocean and the many beaches. Dubai has a 50 KM long coastline covered in the turquoise water of Persian Gulf. Hemmed in by the azure water of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is a place which can be visited throughout the year for watersports.

There is no comparison to Dubai, it is so iconic that it is home to the largest suspended aquarium in the world. If you imagine, you are just a glass wall away from entering the marine world. Do not forget to take this jaw-dropping journey while you are in Dubai Mall, one of the biggest malls in this Arab country. Despite having the vastness of an immeasurable desert, there is a sheer volume of water sports in Dubai which are considered best in the world. The shoreline in Dubai offers high chances of spotting marine animals during snorkelling or swimming. The best places where people go for snorkel are Snoopy rock, Dibba rock, the Musandam Peninsula near the entry point of the Persian Gulf and the famous beach of  Palm Jumeirah.

Zooming off on a jet ski is not easy in Dubai as it is a restricted sport therefore in order to go on a jet ski ride, you need to move towards Dubai Marina, Jumeirah two and three beaches, and Umm Suqeim one and two beaches. Sailing is classic and exhilarating, to say the least, there is no adventure as loved as sailing. It is more like a winter activity which can easily be learned at the Jumeirah beach or you can choose from many sailing activities at the beach. If luxury yacht ride intrigues you then Dubai is the perfect destination for you. Dubai is one of the biggest sailfish destinations in the world and fishing is a very common sport. You can enjoy deep sea fishing in Dubai and if luck strikes well, you might catch a Tuna or Barracudas. From Sharks, Rays to Dolphins, Parakeets and shoals of colourful fishes swim past you in the gulf water. All you need is take a dive into the blue water.

Scuba Diving is a popular sport among the tourists and they are often included in the packages offered by various hotels and agencies. A stand-up paddle is another name in the market which can be enjoyed in calm stretches of the Ocean with some required training. This is a game of balancing while riding a SUP board on the sea water with the help of a paddle. You will have to stand and balance and also need to know swimming and to be over 16 years of age. Flyboard is another amazing invention which allows you to fly up to 10 metres above the sea water surface, with a little bit of swimming and sea surfing. It is one of the most sought-after sports in Dubai. The mind-boggling Seabreacher is your personal submarine that can take up a speed of 100 KMPH. The submarines are designed like Sharks and can be easily accessed at JBR, Rixos The Palm, and The Beach in Dubai. It is a very rare sport but highly recommended by the ones who went solo on a steaming submarine ride.

There is nothing as high-spirited as a ride on the Banana boats. You can ride an inflated Banana on mostly every beach in Dubai. Kayaking is very common on the waves of Dubai and it doesn't need much training.  Row and scull in the endless water while it splashes the briny ocean. The irresistible water adventure of going high up to 150 meters from the surface water on a parasailing ride or learning to dodge the wind conditions while kitesurfing can be best experienced in this Gulf paradise. Dubai is home to some ultra-modern infrastructures and high-end technological wonders and the amusement parks of Dubai are some of the best examples of both. Your trip to Dubai is incomplete without going on some heart-stopping rides of Wild Wadi waterpark and Aquaventure water park.

Aquarium diving might sound a little unusual to your ears but it is done very fondly at the Atlantis in The Palm. The aquarium is so magnanimous that it is home to around 65000 marine animals and if you are trying it out make sure that you swim right next to a Shark in Dubai is so phenomenal with its underwater sports that even if you aimlessly surf in the ocean, you will feel rejuvenated and thrilled. In most of the experiences, people are found strolling on the beaches or leisurely watching the sunset. In Dubai, you cannot stay without an adventure but merely sitting on the shore is so much fun in itself.

The place is a treasure trove for people from across the globe, from speeding up to reach the top floors of some world-famous skyscrapers to getting on a bumpy ride in a safari to the lonesome and long stretch of the  golden desert; from coming out all spluttered and jittery from the magnificent ocean water to sauntering the opulent Malls and souks of Dubai. There is nothing as complete as Dubai and it promises the best water adventure in the world. The multicultural and futuristic approach of Dubai has titled it as the “land of opportunities.” Water sports in  Dubai is something that fascinates everyone who travels to this extravagant city; with an array of options and clear ocean water- it is undoubtedly tough to resist.
