Seawings and Uber UAE are offering aerial tours of Dubai during the UAE National Day long weekend. We took to the air to find out more…
What’s the tour?
Celebrate UAE National Day in the sky with this 25-30 minute seaplane ride. The eight-seater plane has no middle seats, so everyone gets a window seat. Guests can see all the landmarks of Dubai and take great pictures of the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, World islands and other areas of the emirate.
What’s the experience like?
The experience is quite luxurious as your Uber rides are included in the tour. An Uber car drops you off at the Park Hyatt hotel on Dubai Creek as this is where the flight takes off. You need to carry your passport or Emirates ID for the boarding pass. A briefing takes place showing the flight path. If you are a tourist, it’s very important to listen carefully as there’s no running commentary in the flight, so you might not know which landmark is called what.
Once you sit in the plane, it takes off after making a u-turn in the Creek and you see Dubai from a different eye. The Deira Creek, Port Rashid and all the landmarks are quite stunning from up above.
What are the best parts?
The best part of the tour is that everyone gets to see all the landmarks as the plane takes a u-turn. And when it does the u-turn, the feeling is incredible as you are almost tilting to a side. Another great thing about the tour is the photos you can get, it can keep your Instagram feed quite busy for a few days.
What’s the price?
The tour is only available for one day – Saturday, December 3 – at Dhs500 per person including the Uber rides.
How to book?
Booking starts from 12pm on Tuesday, November 29 for the Saturday, December 3 trip.
