Set Sail!

Updated: Aug 20, 2019

Being a series of islands, Abu Dhabi offers a variety of ways to get out on the water. Many tours afford close proximity to remarkably diverse flora and fauna and offer dazzling views across the capital’s glimmering skyline.

Paddle Away

Located within a pristine natural refuge, Sea Hawk Water Sports & Adventures operates daily eco-tours in the Eastern Mangroves. The park is a gateway to the diverse flora and fauna

of Abu Dhabi. Whether you’re looking for recreational kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, daily cruises, or even Emirati traditional dhow boats, Sea Hawk offers a wide range of nonmotorized watersports which can be booked in a guided or unguided tour.

Deep Dive for Pearls

For those who enjoy a bit of culture in their outings, Al Serdal Pearl Diving Experience pays homage to the country’s pearling history and gives visitors the opportunity to live out

the traditional art of pearl diving in the Arabian Gulf when they board a traditional Emirati dhow. To book an expedition, contact or call +971 (0) 54 445 5515.

Skipper a Racing Yacht

Skippering a yacht is so yesterday. Instead, get behind the wheel of a Volvo racing boat and take a relaxed sunset sail along the Abu Dhabi coast. Experience sailing onboard an amazing Volvo Ocean 60 Racing Yacht—the same ones used in the Volvo Ocean Around-the-World Race. Pindar Sailing, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, +971 54 493 8167

One Stop Water Shop: Captain Tony’s

Can’t decide your favourite means to be on the water? Capt Tony couldn’t either because

he loves them all. So, he offers boating, kayaking, abra rides, and sneaky day trips to private

islands. Established in 2013, this seafaring outfit is a capital favourite when it comes to

watersports. Operating from Yas Marina, Eastern Mangroves Marina, and Souk Qaryat Al Beri

Marina, they offer a wide range of ways to explore the capital’s coastline on the water. From

stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking in the mangroves, to a traditional evening dhow ride within the Maqtaa Channel hotels to private island tours, Captain Tony’s has cornered

the market on watersport fun!
