If you live in Dubai, you’ll know that watersports are best experienced during the winter. Instead of snuggling up in cozy blankets, this is the perfect time to let wetsuits take over this season. If you’re an adrenaline junkie and are looking to try something new this winter, Dubai is the perfect place to experience some kickass water-based adventures. The great thing about living in Dubai is that no matter what your tastes are, there’s definitely something new and exciting to try out every other weekend. In fact, aquaphiles in the city can plunge into a whole new world of adventure with a variety of high-octane water sports. With some of the most stunning beaches in the world and a plethora of man-made lakes and other water bodies, there’s plenty of water sport activities available in Dubai for those looking for aquatic adventures in the city.
Whether it’s diving, sailing, jet-skiing or flyboarding, when it comes to watersports, Dubai has it all. With more than 50km of pristine coastline, experiencing water sports is a popular leisure activity in Dubai. Making the most of clear skies and moderately chilly days, you can opt for a high-speed tour on a jet-ski or something a little more daring like flyboarding. Here’s a guide to the best aquatic activities offered by Ride In Dubai.
Jet Skiing is a high-speed water sport that is known to be beneficial for developing your balance and coordination skills. It also helps build your leg muscles. It’s also one of the most loved water sports all around the world. What’s better than cruising the seas and taking in stunning views of your favorite Dubai attractions? And if you’re someone who enjoys doing this with a pump of adrenaline, there’s no better way than indulging in a jet skiing session around the city’s beaches.
Ride In Dubai offers the best jet skiing deals in Dubai. If you’re looking for a short jet-skiing session just to get a feel of the sport, you can try Ride In Dubai’s 20-minute ride. It’s not one to be missed and is the ultimate way to visit the best spots the Dubai coast has to offer. Another tempting option is to check out the Burj Al Arab via jet skiing. A 30-minute session by Ride In Dubai offers a unique view from the Persian Gulf. While a number of people can claim they’ve seen the Burj Al Arab, how many can say they did it while jet skiing?
If you’re looking for a slightly longer session and really want to soak in the experience, a one hour session is your best bet with the Mina Seyahi Jet Ski Tour. Complete with a tour of the entire Jumeirah Beach in style while taking in the beautiful Dubai skyline is the perfect way to spend your wintry days. Additionally, if you’re looking to visit the best spots the Dubai coast has to offer, you can opt for a 1.5 hours session with the Palm Jumeirah Jet Ski Tour. During the tour, you’ll find yourself soaring through the water at 70 kmph, all while being treated to panoramic views of the spectacular skyline looming ahead. Don’t worry if you’re someone who has second thoughts about doing this alone. All the tours are accompanied by a qualified instructor.
If you’re a complete water baby and want to stay in the water for longer, the perfect option for you is to opt for the Explore Tour Jet Ski Tour. This session promises two hours of thrill seeking with stunning views of Dubai, Jumeirah beach, the Burj Al Arab, the wonderful Atlantis, and JBR Bluewaters where the Dubai Ferris Wheel is located.
Flyboarding was created by Franky Zapata, a French jet-ski designer. He fell in love with jet skiing as a teenager and soon turned it into his passion using his skill and knowledge to become a competitive jet-ski racer. He later developed The Flyboard along with some of the fastest jet-skis in the world. You can think of it as a crossroads between kitesurfing and wakeboarding. Flyboarding hit the adventure sports scene in Dubai a couple of years ago in its early days and has become a hit among Dubai’s thrill-seeking water sports fans. With a flyboard, the rider uses the pressure from the water to propel into the air or ‘fly’. The pressure of the water jet streaming out of the flyboard is controlled by the throttle (which is also known as the personal watercraft). The energy is redirected to the connection tube, when you hold down the throttle, helping increase the propulsion. It is surprisingly simple and a lot of fun. With a life jacket and helmet for safety, the rider is strapped onto the flyboard. The flyboard is connected to a jet-ski with a 10m pipe, which pumps water into the board. The jet-ski engine supplies the power to pump the water. The pressure created by this is what propels the board up. Although it looks tricky, all you need is a good balance. And worry not, a safety instructor is always standing by. High wind speeds and high-tides are perfect for flyboarding and Dubai has plenty of that to offer.
It doesn’t take long to master this sport either. With Ride In Dubai’s 30 minute sessions, you will find yourself doing tricks and backflips in no time. After a short safety briefing and instructions on how the board works, your instructor will have you up and away in just a few minutes. If you are a beginner, this can be confusing, which is why a certified instructor is assigned to you when you try flyboarding for the first time. However, once you feel like you’re in control, and are ready to do this on your own, you can choose to invest in an adaptor kit that gives you total control of the ride. The waters of the Persian Gulf, along the Dubai coastline, are calm throughout the year. With a unique view of the Burj Al Arab, flyboarding in Dubai is second to none other. In addition, the personalized attention of qualified instructors makes for a memorable experience.
