About us

HERO OdySea is Dubai’s first self-drive boat tour giving you the incredible opportunity to experience what it’s like to Captain your own boat on a thrilling adventure along Dubai’s iconic coastline. We want you to follow in the footsteps of Heroes like Ibn Battuta and Amilia Earhart by taking control of your travel experience.

In the Caribbean, we were the 4-time “Tour of the Year” award winner, we won numerous TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Awards and hosted over half a million guests, incident free. As an expert in aquatic ventures and after successfully operating a boat tour company on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten for 17 years, we decided to partner with Dubai’s leading tour company, Platinum Heritage to bring this thrilling self-drive boat tour to Dubai.

As the only desert safari company to have won a World Travel Award, a DTCM Green Tourism Award, Luxury Lifestyle Award and 4-time Certificate of Excellence Awards from TripAdvisor, Platinum Heritage has an intricate understanding of tourism and is the expert in creating authentic travel experiences in Dubai – this makes them the perfect partner for HERO OdySea!

You do not require a boat license and each self-drive boat tour is led by a professional Guide on a 90-minute adventure. At each photo stop, our Guides share stories about Dubai’s well-known highlights. Our 12 ft inflatable HERO boats are safe and easy to drive making them a perfect fun-filled family activity in Dubai.
