We had a great time out on the sea camels on Friday. Our guide was brilliant, we had so much fun touring round on the boats. The guys in the Seamocean office are so helpful and we would recommend them to anyone looking to book some water sports.
Perfect end to a wonderful holiday

My family of 8 and I had the most perfect end to our boat tour this August. Rene booked us in and his manner was very friendly and provided us with all the information that we needed before we booked. The youngest in our group was my 10 year old son who was a bit nervous to start with but was whooping with joy by the end. Pramith was in charge of driving the speedboat and he gave us a delightful hour tour around the marina. The tour included water, juice and snacks, I would definitely recommend this. We chose a 6pm slot, the perfect golden hour for photos.
I was driving with a little scared but it was very nice to get out of my comfort zone

What an a wonderful experience!! They were so flexible in terms of scheduling the time and date. The Sea Camels are in tip top shape and the tour guide was really fun. It’s ample time on the water and such a unique way to view the city. It’s very sunny so make sure you’re wearing sunscreen. They give you opportunities to push the pedal to the metal as well to cruise through out the tour. There are two seats so if you’re a couple you can both take turns driving. They provide a little cooler with water and there’s a dry space for you phone. You get to see the skyline from the water and it’s so beautiful. I would highly recommend. You can wear a bathing suit or keep your clothes on, but if you opt for clothes, know that you might get a little splash here and there depending on how you take the turns and the wake of others. I would 100% recommend this and when i go back to dubai ill be back!! these guys were great! they are located at the back of the sofitel on the palm. 10 out 10!!!!!
Best experience ever

This was by far the best experience we’ve had during our 10 days in Dubai.
We booked via groupon so paid £44 for each person ( family of 4)

Our guide was Pramith, who was absolutely brilliant, he even took the time to take picture and videos of us all and sent them to me via WhatsApp.

This is a must experience for anyone visiting Dubai, the ride lasted just over an hour, so worth the money.

They will brief you on safety and provide life jackets, follow the rules and you will have a memorable experience.

I will definitely recommend this experience to friends and family.
Thrilling, exciting, awesome

Self driving a speed boat in the Dubai waters passing luxury yachts, cruise ships, jet skis on the move is something. Our guide was amazing (so unfortunate I cannot recall his name). Highly recommended. Our 6 year old loved it too!

We had a lot of fun, the guide Ashan was very helpful, the tour was very interesting and overall it was an amazing experience, definitely worth it.
Highlight of our trip in Dubai!

We purchased the Go City Explorer pass and this was one activity we could choose. We met at the Sofitel at the Palm and headed to Seamocean, which was some sort of a hut on the Sofitel beach (enter the hotel and be redirected). We didn't realise this was a private tour, which was even better! Learning to operate the boat was great and simpler than expected. The team was warm and helpful and the guide took some amazing photos in front of Ain Dubai and the various hotels while at sea. Icing on the cake, there were lots of exotic fish underneath the hut: we are easily pleased :-) The paid (boat) and the free (fish) experiences are highly recommended!

What an amazing experience it was! To go full throttle on a sea camel boat ride was absolutely exhilarating! A special mention goes to our guides Ashan and his fellow countryman (sorry can't remember his name) who instructed us clearly and kept an eye on us to ensure a safe ride. A must try for every water sports enthusiast!
Amazing experience

It was such a great experience and an awesome way to see new parts of Dubai. I loved being able to drive my own sea camel!

Amazing experience on self-drive speedboat
marcinmY, 04-01-2023
We had amazing time on this self-drive speedboat tour in Dubai - you must try it if you can - excellent experience. The staff are super friendly and explain everything very clearly - it was my first time on the boat like this, and I really enjoyed it. What is more, my wife is a bit panicky, and she asked if one member of staff could assist her and our son on the boat, and it was no problem. We recommend this tour to everybody!!!
