  • The Museum parking area and nearby public parking areas are available (relatively few)
  • Do not self drive to museums and heritage sites as they are located in crowded old city areas and parking is a scarcity there; you are rather advised to use public transport.
  • Wear easy to slip in and out footwear as many places would need you to remove your footwear.

Surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Arabian Sea, Dubai is a wonderful place for water sports. Out of the lot of water activities, one of the most thrilling and fun water sports activities is Kayaking!

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water – to put it in layman’s terms. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is a low-to-the-water – canoe-like – boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. So like a rowboat but more personal.

Now why is Dubai so good for Kayaking, you might ask. The answer is pretty simple really. With access to relatively gentle waters all year round, kayaking is a sport that has rightfully captured the imagination of the UAE’s thrill seekers. And what more, the incredible scenic spots and no lack of enthusiasts, kayaking can get you into shape in a fun and friendly way. Kayaking at the Palm Jumeirah, with the magnificent Atlantis Hotel in the background during a grandiose sunset, will never get old.

Usually, people affiliate kayaks with closed deck models, where only the rider’s upper body is exposed, but the open ‘sit-on-top’ models are most common in Dubai. The inflatable models combine elements of the two; they are essentially open decks but with air chambers surrounding the boat, the paddler seated below the level of the deck.

You could head on alone and enjoy a peaceful day with yourself and the water around you, with no one to bother you and disturb you – a place where you can give time to just yourself; something that you should be doing from time to time. Or you could head on out with the best of family and friends and enjoy a fun-filled day where you’ll walk out having had bucket loads of fun and equal amounts of exercise for your fitness.

So what’re you waiting for? Pick up that phone and make a booking soon. The winter won’t last forever!
Here are a few service providers you can contact:

We hope to see you kayaking in the beautiful blue waters of Dubai soon. Trust us, you’ll have a really good time.
