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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
