Sailing in Dubai - Exploring Your Adventurous Side in the City of Gold!

Dubai is a sailor’s paradise, with over 1300 kilometres of clear blue waters, perfect weather and minimal tides. Tourists as well as dedicated sailors are always keen to explore the Gulf waters at any time of the year, including summers as the temperature in sea is much bearable than the scorching heat on the land. Sailing is a great way to spend your time in Dubai, be it for fun or adventure, or for a peaceful getaway. There are many locations in Dubai which offer a choice of sailing options and packages:

1. Dubai Marina
