There were once restrictions on motorised water sports in Dubai but since these restrictions have been lifted in around 2014. Since the ban was lifted the water sports industry up and down the endless beaches of Dubai are booming.
An increasing amount of water sports companies are springing up each year in Dubai and travellers do not know which ones to trust. That’s where we come in with this guide on Jet Skiing in Dubai.
Where to Jet Ski in Dubai
First of all, there are three main areas to Jet Ski in Dubai, namely Jumeirah Beach Residence, La Mer Beach and Umm Suqeim Fishing Harbour. The further north you travel the generally cheaper it becomes to hire a jet ski.
As you can see from the image below; there are plenty of providers to choose from. Our personal favourite is to jet ski from Dubai Marina.
The Best Companies to Jet Ski With in Dubai
Three of the best places to Jet Ski in Dubai are Jet Ski Dubai Adventures, Sun and Fun Water Sports and Nemo Watersports. These three water sports providers are also amongst the most popular in the Arabian city and so may be more expensive then the rest but are tried and tested and have great reviews.
5 Best Jet Ski Providers in Dubai
1. Jet Ski Dubai Adventures
Here you can choose between Jet Skiing in Dubai Marina or out in the Arabian Sea of Jumeirah Beach. If you want to take in the skyscrapers of the marina then book with these guys as they’re one of the only Jet Ski companies licenced to take Jets into the Marina.
The sea tours features views of The Atlantis Hotel, Burj Al Arab and other luxury hotspots on the Dubai coastline.
Featuring Wakeboarding, Flyboard and Parasailing as well as Jet Ski Tours, Jet Ski Dubai Adventures is in the prime location of Dubai near Jumeirah Beach Residences. For an easy way to find your way, look for the Marina Byblos Hotel as they’re just next door.
Jet Ski Dubai Adventures Location
Jet Ski Prices: Prices are per Jet Ski and allow either 1 or 2 persons per ski. Prices start at 380 AED for the sea tours and 630 AED for the Marina Tour. Prices increase with minutes requested; either 30,60 or 90 minutes.
Tip: Try to book as late in the day as possible. This will be cooler and when you’re riding back in to base you can catch the sunset behind The Palm Jumeirah.
2. Sun and Fun Water Sports
Sun and Fun Water Sports are based the other side of The Palm Jumeirah near to Fishing harbour Umm Suqeim 2. In our opinion this provider offer better tour guides but their Jet Skis aren’t as powerful as the ones by Jet Ski Dubai Adventures.
It all depends on your preference for a tour or a powerful Jet Ski. However, the ski’s still pack an impressive 1800cc and reach speeds up to 100km/h so it does depend on what you call slow!
The prices and packages here are split a little differently as you can have one of three tours. Namely; The Burj al Arab, Dubai Marina or Atlantis Hotel and The Palm Island.
Sun and Fun Watersports Dubai Location
Jumeirah Beach Jet Ski Price: 30 Minute tours start at 370AED, 60 minutes is 630AED and 2 hours is 990AED.
Tip: If your a beginner try the 60 minute tour. This will give enough time to see the Burj al Arab as well as the Palm Jumeirah. 2 hours can be tough on the hands and shoulders for beginners! When your done jet skiing and have a bit of an appetite, head next door to Origami Sushi Fusion for some incredible food on the beach.
3. Sea Ride Dubai
Run by seven-times jet ski world champion Steven Dauliach, this place is sure to be a success. Sea Ride Dubai is a great beginners place to Jet Ski. Set just a stone’s throw from Mercato Shopping Mall and opposite The World Islands; these Jets are cheaper than those of the previous two suppliers.
Part of the reason for this is that the travel to the sightseeing parts takes a little longer and your a little further from the popular promenades of Dubai.
The packages here are very similar to those above but can save you money as a whole. The only difference is, due to location but you can do a tour of the Burj Khalifa which is well worth it. Having personally Jet Skied with these guys we can say they offer incredible sightseeing experiences.
Sea Ride Dubai Location
Price: 30 Minute Burj Khalifa Tour – 315AED, 60 Minute Burj Al Arab – 525AED, 2 Hours Atlantis 840AED
Tip: The Burj Khalifa Tour is well worth the price and good for beginners and travellers on a budget.
4. Hydro Water Sports
Hydro Water Sports are located on The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence. Additionally, this is one of the most scenic places to rent a jet ski in Dubai. Renting a jet ski from here allows you to capture the natural coastline featuring the many fantastic hotels and brand new Bluewaters Island.
Bluewaters Island features the largest Ferris wheel in the world, plus the Palm Jumeirah can be seen from here.
Hydro Water Sports Dubai also conduct shows which are viewable from the beach for free. These are particularly impressive at night where the jetpacks light up the water.
Hydro Water Sports don’t offer tours like most of the rest but are still one of the best places to rent a jet ski in Dubai and let off some steam with some free cruising time.
Hydro Watersports Location
Hydro Watersports Dubai are located on the beach next door to The Ritz Carlton hotel.
Tip: Try the Jet Pack sessions!
5. Nemo Watersports Dubai
Nemo Watersports offer a variety of water sports and offer a package where you can split half your time on a Flyboard and the other half of your time on a jet ski. For Jet Skis they offer 30 minute, 60 minute and 2 hour tours.
Nemo Watersports in Dubai won the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence three years running in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and are rated #1 for Jet Skis on Tripadvisor. So they’re proven to be an extremely reputable jet ski company!
Nemo Watersports Dubai Location
Nemo Watersports are actually located around 100m away from Sun and Fun Watersports Dubai so make sure you don’t get the two confused if you have pre booked.
Price: 30 Mins – 370AED, 60 Mins – 630AED, 2 Hours – 935AED
Tip: Nemo are probably the most popular operator so make sure to book online in advance.
