The Thrill-Seekers Guide to Xtreme Water Activities in Dubai

The Thrill-Seekers Guide to Xtreme Water Activities in Dubai

November 14

Given its location on the coast of the UAE, Dubai is the go-to place for amazing extreme water activities. There are several choices available here if you desire an adrenaline rush. From jet skiing to flyboarding and more, there is something for everyone. Here we will explore the best ones approved by our thrill-seekers. 


Riding a motorbike can be a thrilling experience. Jetskis function similarly but over water. The personal watercraft can reach a top speed of up to 70 mph, so if you enjoy the adrenaline rush gained from going fast, this is the perfect activity for you. Jetskiing also offers you the opportunity to perform a wide variety of tricks ranging in intensity, from riding the waves, to donuts, hairpin turns, and even surfing. 

How does the activity work?

We provide sit-down jetskis that are comfortable and can seat up to three people. These crafts are also easy to operate and maneuver. Once you turn the jet ski ignition switch on, you can push the throttle slowly. It is recommended to cruise slowly until you are away from the shoreline and other vessels before increasing your speed. To turn the jet ski, you need to lean towards the direction you want to go. For the best turns, you need to accelerate while tilting.


Another thrilling activity that is trending worldwide is flyboarding. Many liken it to feeling like a superhero, as the activity propels you upward. It requires more skill than jetskiing, and typically it can take you up to twenty to thirty minutes to have a comfortable degree of control. However, the experience of soaring across the skies while being propelled by water is exhilarating. Once you have mastered control of the device, you can perform several tricks. The dolphin dive is widely popular as it is thrilling and requires a certain degree of skill. 

How does the activity work?

The flyboard is a type of hydroflighting device which uses water propulsion through jets attached under the board to lift the rider to the air. A long hose connects the device to a watercraft where the instructor will control the board’s amount of power. If you are relatively new to flyboarding, then you will at max be only able to reach heights of 5 to 10ft. However, if you have experience, you can go up to 72ft in the air. Controlling the flyboard is through the angle of your legs. Standing straight allows you to go up, while bending the knees slightly will let you turn. 

Banana boat rides

While the activity might seem kid-friendly, banana boat rides are very thrilling. Unlike the other activities in this list, there is relatively less control for the rider. This means that you will not be able to expect what is to come, which can be exciting. 

How does the activity work?

Inflatable yellow banana-shaped boats are attached to a jetski or watercraft. While you will be given a life vest, you should hold onto clasps on the ride to steady yourself. As the boat picks up speed, this can be difficult to do, and if you fail to hold on, you could fall off into the water. Many thrillseekers who are beginners to water-related activities enjoy this one as it gives a boost of adrenaline.
