Booking a yacht charter in Dubai, whether you are a resident or a visitor, is an imaginative way to relax away from the cosmopolitan bustle of city life. It's a place where many people engage in water sports, and you will be joining kite surfers, canoeists, fisherman, divers and jet ski enthusiasts, who all take to the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf at every available opportunity.
And that's the great advantage of this part of the world – the weather. When you decide to 'go to sea', you can be almost sure that the sun will be out, there will be a bit of a breeze to cool things down, and there won't be any huge waves to upset your drink.
From the Dubai coastline you can view all those iconic buildings you have read about in the Sunday supplement's – the Burj Khalifa (currently the tallest tower in the world), the Burj Al Arab, Dubai's 7 Star hotel, and the numerous buildings of the commercial district which collectively constit an architect's catalog.
Cruise to the edge of the Jumeirah Palm, with the beautiful Atlantis Hotel facing seawards on the outer breakwater, or take a trip around the World (Islands of course). Whilst the rest of Dubai seems to be on the beach, you will be enjoying the privacy of your own charter yacht, a light lunch, a chilled glass of Sancerre, a refreshing swim. You can create a day to suit yourself, whether that involves lots of water toys to distract the kids or basking on the cushioned solarium.
There are many different types of yacht available for charter in Dubai, from a 315 ft floating palace, to comfortable day cruisers, and everything in-between. You can enjoy the natural marine environment or have a private party in your own exclusive setting – it is totally up to you, but be sure that whatever kind of Dubai yacht charter you choose, it will be one of the best photo opportunities you've had for a long time.
