Birthday Party Ideas in Dubai (not another brunch!)

Dubai is a great place to celebrate your birthday with friends and family, whether you are a resident or just visiting. With the endless restaurants, pool parties and brunches on offer, there’s plenty to choose from to keep you entertained.

But after a while all brunches tend to blur into one and it can start to feel like all you do in Dubai is ‘brunch’. If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate your birthday that is not another brunch, then this is for you!  Invite your group of friends for a unique boat voyage along Dubai’s coastline where you get to drive the boat! Here’s why a HERO OdySea Boat Tour is a great alternative to a brunch.

Group Activity

HERO OdySea Boat Tours are great for a group activity. We have a fleet of HERO boats and can accommodate groups of up to 12 people. We have Double Rider and Single Rider options so people can drive in pairs and take turns or they can drive solo. If you’re the competitive type then you will enjoy racing your friends along Dubai’s coastline on the fast HERO boats or you might prefer a gentler cruise where you get to admire Dubai’s views and enjoy being on the ocean.

Outdoor Fun

Nowadays people are gravitating more towards experiences which enrich their lives. Driving your own boat is a fun and empowering outdoor activity in Dubai. Plus, it’s also an active and healthy alternative to eating and drinking too much at brunch! Reach speeds up to 60km/h on these nifty boats which are incredibly easy to drive. You don’t need a boat licence or previous experience to drive the HERO boats. We give you a thorough and entertaining safety briefing and demonstration to make sure that you are ready to drive your own boat.

Great Photo Opportunities

Whether you are a tourist or a resident in Dubai, HERO OdySea Boat Tours are a great way to get amazing photos in Dubai. Not only do you get up close to some of Dubai’s most famous landmarks like Atlantis and Burj Al Arab, but the boats themselves have been designed with aesthetics and practicality in mind. With plush cream leather seats, wooden and blue finishes, the HERO boats are fast becoming the most stylish boats on Dubai’s coastline.

Different Boat Tours

We have four daily boat tour times. You can join our Signature Boat Tour at 8:30 am, 10:30 am or 2:30 pm. This route takes you along Kite Beach to Burj Al Arab, along the coastal strip with palaces and mansions passed Logo Island, along the Palm to Atlantis and back. It lasts 2 hours in total with 90 minutes on the water.

Our Sunset Boat Tour is the prime time to be on the ocean. The sunset views are stunning and driving your own boat with the backdrop of the sun setting behind Dubai’s famous skyline is truly spectacular. This route is 90 minutes in total with 60 minutes on the water and begins at 5:00 pm. It includes stops along the way at Burj Al Arab and the World Islands. When you arrive back in the harbor you are welcomed with platters of freshly grilled Arabian prawns and sparkling juice.

For private group bookings we can customise the experience for you by adding extras like birthday décor, a birthday cake or other requests. Please contact our reservations team for special requests at [email protected].

Prime Location

HERO OdySea is located at Fishing Harbor 2 in Umm Suqeim 1 which is between the famous Kite Beach and the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club. As a central location in Dubai it’s not too far for you to go somewhere else afterwards in the Dubai Marina or Downtown area. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange extras like group transfers for special events and private group bookings.
