A highlight of this boat experience is the quick stop along the way at one of Dubai’s most famous hotels, Burj Al Arab. Admired for its unique sail-shaped silhouette and innovative location on man-made land jutting out off the coastline, Burj Al Arab’s fame is similar to London’s Big Ben or Paris’s Eifel Tower. Known for its exclusivity and high-profile guests, the best way to view Burj Al Arab is from the ocean. Drive up close to the famous landmark to get impressive views and amazing photo opportunities with the modern-day masterpiece. Your Guide will also share some lesser-known facts and anecdotes about the world’s-only 7-star hotel.

Head back to the marina and feel like a real superhero on a mission as you race towards one of the world’s most iconic skylines – Downtown Dubai. Since Dubai’s modern skyscrapers have been built up along the coastline, the best way to see most of the city is by boat. Most days in Dubai offer blue skies and sunshine; on these abundant clear days with an activity like HERO OdySea, panoramic views of the vibrant city and its ocean are guaranteed.
Panoramic views of modern Dubai
As the only self-drive boats in Dubai, our boat tours give travellers the control to create their own thrilling experience along Dubai’s coastline. The HERO OdySea Boat Tours are more than an experience; captaining your own boat is an achievement. We encourage travellers to ‘Be a HERO’ for the day and drive their own boat!
A HERO is someone who is admired for their courage and outstanding achievements. By conquering the ocean, we hope to inspire travellers to ‘Be a HERO’ in other areas of their life. Part of our HERO mission is to protect the ocean and marine conservation is very important to us.
