A water jet pack seems like something straight out of a superhero movie. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a water-powered propulsion system that lifts its wearer as high as 30 feet above the water, spinning in corkscrews and circles at dizzying speeds. Suffice it to say, this experience – along with its pack-less cousin, flyboarding – is not your average water sport.
Flying with the Water Jetpack is the latest water sport to hit the shores of the UAE. Get ready to experience the thrills even if you’re a complete beginner. Learn from a professional instructor how to fly with this latest device.
Arrival at Dubai
Highlights: Desert Safari, The Dubai Mall, At the Top Burj Khalifa, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, Miracle Gardens, Jumeirah Beach, Watersports, Historical Neighborhood, Dubai Museum, Dubai Creek, Abra ride, Gold Souk, Spice Souk, Textile Souk, Dhow cruise
Keep a relaxed first half of the day. Shop at a nearby mall – it will take you around an hour or two to explore the large malls of Dubai.
Plan for a desert safari experience in the second half. The tour starts with an adventurous dune bashing ride in a SUV, where you’ll go up and down steep sand dunes and feel like being in a roller coaster.
Enjoy traditional dance performances at the desert camp under the stars, followed by a lavish dinner buffet. Do try the local grilled delicacies, barbequed fresh at the camp.
The Dubai Mall
Start off with some shopping at The Dubai Mall and a visit to the Burj Khalifa. Go to At the Top Burj Khalifa for a bird’s eye view of Dubai. The tour begins with an interior elevator ride that has an amazing projection of other building heights compared to the Burj. You can see the history of construction process, photographs of the team which has taken part in it as well as the big models of the building itself.
You cannot miss the 10 million-litre tank at the Dubai Aquarium, which is one of the largest in the world, containing more than 33,000 aquatic animals and the largest collection of sand tiger sharks anywhere. The 48-metre long Aquarium tunnel takes you 11 metres under the surface and recreates this fascinating environment in near-perfect detail. Located on Level Two above the Aquarium tank, Underwater Zoo leads you through three ecological Zones – Rainforest, Rocky Shore and Living Ocean.
The fancy Waterfall is another beautiful piece of design inside The Dubai Mall.
Have your meals at one of the many outlets in the mall, like California Pizza Kitchen, TGI Fridays, Chillis, Carluccio’s, Cheesecake Factory and more.
Beach and Water sports
Visit the Miracle Gardens – a beautifully landscaped, remarkable flower themed park. Walk through Europe and Middle-Eastern theme streets, have a snack by the little pond, and admire the replicas of famous landmarks covered with flowers.
Head to visit Jumeirah Beach, which is a great place for trying out offbeat water sports. Fly a jetpack, which operates with a similar idea like any hydro sports. The first time you fly a jetpack, you are immediately surprised to find that you are in fact sitting on the seat and your weight is all being carried by the saddle. The straps of the jetpack are holding you in place, but distribute none of your weight. Keeping your legs from swaying side to side is the number one key to stability and comfort.
During the first 10 minutes, the pro instructor will explain how to use the device, how to take off, hand signals and safety procedures and then you will have 20 minutes to fly.
Later, go for a barbeque dinner at Creek Side Park, where the kids can enjoy a cable car ride, quad bikes and many other activities.
Get to Know the old City
After breakfast, head to the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood in Bur Dubai for a very educative and informative tour of the place specially for learning about the Arab culture and their beautiful architecture. In this nice place, mostly quiet and not crowded, its buildings coloured so to resemble desert sand, you’ll find shops filled with souvenirs, cafes, museums, craft shops and much more.
Later, walk for a few minutes to the Dubai Museum – a 18th-century fort housing a museum with multimedia exhibits on local history & cultural heritage. Don’t be deceived by the first courtyard into which you enter after buying your ticket – there is much more to see after walking down the slope and indoors including the story of how Dubai came about and the modem history as well as the local culture.
Take a ride on the Dubai Abra, the city’s most traditional mode of transport, to cross the Dubai Creek from Bur Dubai to Deira. Spend the afternoon shopping for gold, carpets and spices in the souks. See the Arabic streets, covered with wooden panels having a distinct old world charm and gold hung in abundance from the shop display windows.
End your day with a ride on the authentic dhow vessel, a ship that epitomizes the intersection of modern and traditional that so characterizes Dubai. A dinner cruise is a great way to enjoy the variety and flavor of global cuisine, as well as a fun sightseeing opportunity. You’ll get to see highlights of the downtown area, as Dubai Creek divides the city’s urban heart into two.
Transfer to Airport
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your departure flight.
