Best water park I ever saw. You must arrive early to have the chance to try all the slides because in the afternoon the queues become bigger. If you have money, I recommend you to buy "skip the line", I regret not having it.

Trip was lovely the meeting point was not clear to the taxi driver. We was late by 20mins. But the staff was great still got us on the boat. Showed us all the private islands and what was around us. Great trip

Great way to start our trip with views of the marina, Atlantis, Burj Al Arab, and Jumeriah Beach. Our tour guide stopped to tell us a little bit about each place. Felt very safe on the boat. Highly recommend!

Excellent experience. The staff was very encouraging and patient. We had some amazing instructors. Will definitely do it again. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

My husband and I had an awesome time and enjoyed every aspect of the tour as it was very informative, thanks to our very helpful guide Maaz Khan.
