NEW MARINE THRILLS
This is technically a mini-submarine in the shape of a shark with a speed reaching up to 100kmph. It even mimics the tail movements of a real shark.
KITES AND PARASAILING
This uninitiated sport doesn’t require experience with manoeuvring through the wind, because you are pulled behind a boat on a parasail that will lift you up to almost 150m in the air.
Jet-ski tour is accompanied by a qualified instructor and you can go as fast as you like, for anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.
ALEXANDRA DHOW CRUISE
“”Alexandra” is a 90 Foot Traditional Arabic ‘Dhow’ that has been refurbished into a quality floating restaurant. Alexandra is not purely a restaurant, its more of a holistic experience. The first component of the experience is the cruising through Dubai Marina and in the lagoon created by the palm Island. Seeing ‘new Dubai’ from the water really puts things in perspective in a way that a walk or a drive doesn’t. A second component that makes Alexandra a bit different is the live entertainment we have onboard in the form of a ‘Tanura’ show and live music performance by a singer – something that is different to what is normally offered onshore. Lastly, we try our best to keep a very diverse menu with no corners cut on the catering. Our menu has 1 beef dish, 1 fish dish, 1 chicken dish, 4 sides, 5 salads and 5 kinds of desert as well as a clear seafood soup. We hope this to satisfy any foodies that may stumble into our venue.” This is a comment in trip advisor by one of the guest. The cruise commence from the hotel door step. Contact reception for booking.
