- Recreate history with a seaplane take-off from the famous Dubai Creek, using the same strip of water as the first plane to ever land in Dubai.
- Feast your eyes on the wonders of Dubai’s skyline and enjoy unsurpassed aerial views of all the famous monuments, such as the Burj Khalifa, World Islands, and Burj Al Arab.
- Celebrate the exclusivity of a private plane charter as it’s only you and your invited guests seated in the nine-capacity seaplane.
- Complete and compliment this Dubai luxury tour with limousine transfers.
The Seawings Gold Experience is the ultimate option for private tours.
The shimmering waters of Dubai Creek are where the UAE’s first ever airport was located. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, luxury seaplanes would land here on their long journey from Britain to India.
It was the era’s most elite method of travel. Fast-forward to modern times and the seaplane experience has been revived in all its pomp and razzmatazz. A beautiful water take-off helps recreate these historic journeys, using the same strip of water as the first plane to ever take-off from Dubai.
The skyline has changed dramatically since the 1940s but as the plane ascends you’ll still get a genuine sense of the city’s history and heritage. And after your scenic loop of the city, you’ll swoop back and enjoy a beautiful landing back at the Dubai Creek.
Sublime Dubai Aerial Photography
This exclusive seaplane charter ensures stunning panoramas over all of Dubai’s iconic attractions and architectural wonders. Glide past the Burj Khalifa and photograph the unmissable tower of the world’s tallest building. Soar along the Arabian Gulf, admiring how the Burj Al Arab’s sail neatly separates city from sea and desert from water. Also standing proud beneath the wingtips are Dubai’s eclectic attractions, like the Deira Clock Tower and the charms of downtown Dubai. Then out in the Gulf there’s unrivalled scenic views of the Palm Jumeirah and the World Islands, the city’s ode to futuristic engineering wonderfully cascading across the waters. Unsurprisingly, this exclusive seaplane charter is favoured by anyone looking to do Dubai aerial photography or aerial filming. It’s not just architectural creations. With this aerial journey you’ll also admire the colourful charms of nature, with the desert and its sand dunes cascading into the Arabian Gulf.
Exclusive Dubai Seaplane Charter
This isn’t a public tour. Enjoy access to your own nine-capacity plane. Every comfortable seat has its own viewing window so there’s no best “best” place to sit on the plane. The air-conditioned cabin maintains the comfort levels as you take in the views of the city. It’s an ideal Dubai family activity while also a very memorable romantic option for two. Elevating the sense of luxury further is a private limousine transfer to the Dubai Creek. You’ll hop straight from the limo to the seaplane and take-off into the azure UAE sky. Touch back down on water and the limousine is waiting to complete this sublime and exclusive charter.
I was lucky enough to partake in a trip... I was unsure what to expect and was ultimately blown away by the experience. Having never flown in a seaplane I was amazed. You fly no higher a 1500 and you feel as though you can simply touch the sights just outside your window. The staff and the whole operation were very friendly and welcoming. A must do activity without question it is simply awesome.

Watched the planes take off and land from our hotel beach on a daily basis so decided pretty earlier on in our stay that this was something we had to do. Amazing experience from the star to the finish. All staff very professional and friendly. Pilot happy to have photos with the guests at the end of the flight. The flight itself was amazing. Like nothing we've ever experienced before. Best view of the manmade palms and the world constructions. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend.

The seaplane flight was amazing! We saw all the sights of Dubai within the 40 minutes flight and it was so worth it. Highly recommended, it's something that will stay with you for life.

“Second time around!” - Seawings Seaplane Tours
I was lucky enough to do a Seawings flight last week for the second time and it was just as spectacular as the first. The first time I went from Jebel Ali and this time from Dubai Creek - both are great and offer pretty much the same main views but just the take off and landing differ - both are a great option.. I rate this as a MUST do in Dubai - having visited the city at least 12 times now!

Truly an experience not to be missed! The views are epic, and you really feel like you are experiencing something special. If you love aerial views, planes, and architecture, you will rave about this experience. Truly the highlight of our trip! We sat in the very back seats, side-by-side (plenty of legroom), and had great, uninterrupted views! *We suggest booking the Silver Tour that takes off and lands in Dubai Creek, otherwise you will have quite a drive to get back into town with a landing at Jebel Ali.

Great to see Dubai from 1500 metres. Very professional safety briefing and a great,informative 40 minute scenic flight. Each seat has a window. Well worth the money.It is a once in a lifetime experience. Dubai is amazing from the air. I would recommend this as a must do in the UAE.

An incredible way of seeing Dubai. It's worth the money and it's also a great experience to take off and landing in a Hidroplane

After being in Dubai as a resident for a little over a year and having friends visiting, I thought to myself, why not do a seaplane tour and see "my Dubai from high above"? Well, it was simply extraordinary! Amazing welcoming and professional staff and pilot! Personally, THE experience really worth doing in Dubai especially if you are coming for a 4-5 day trip since you see so much more in 40 minutes. Everyone will be amazed! WAY TO GO SEAWINGS!!

Growing up in Dubai I've seen a lot but everyday this city surprises me and this time we decided to take a 45 minute sea plane ride with our two young boys and view the city from a birds eye! The beauty, the angles, the infrastructure, the design, the intricate details - I just want to be a bird after this and I recommend this to anyone and everyone. Seawings has so many different options and we decided to take the route from the old creek to Jebel Ali .. gorgeous and exhilarating are under statements

I stayed at the Park Hyatt Dubai (see review) and the departure of Seawings is just next door at the Dubai Golf Club. It's incredibly convenient. It is also a must in my opinion. The trip is 40 exhilarating minutes long. You get a bird's-eye view of the iconic landmarks including Palm Island (Palm Jumeirah), World Island and the Burj Khalifa. You'll definitely take home amazing video and photos, as well as a greater appreciation of Dubai's world class architecture.
