Best Time of the Year
I know a lot of you will be thinking about this being in Dubai but since the Seawings Dubai charter is a Cessna aircraft that is covered and climate-controlled, the weather outside does not make a difference to one’s experience.
However, Dubai being a desert, there is a chance of a sandstorm that can be more likely in the winter months, hence checking the weather report for visibility rates is advisable.
Winter time also has fog during the morning hours, hence why you should opt for an afternoon slot during the months from November to February. In short, the Seawings Dubai experience is enjoyable year-round.
Depending on the experience you choose, there are different time slots for departure. While the Snapshot experience departs at 8:30 AM daily, the Scenic Tours depart at 11:15 AM every Friday.
The Silver experiences have flexible timings that allow you to enter anytime within operating hours (9 AM – 6 PM).
For this experience, we’d suggest going anytime between 10AM – 12 PM or 3PM to 5PM, depending on your convenience.
Route of Flight
Here the #p2visitdxb team are showing you the route that the plane takes from the Jebel Ali hotel, where it takes off from the little marina there. This huge map is based in the reception of Seawings next to the hotel. The map below shows you how to enter the hotel premises.
Q. Are Seaplane rides safe?
Yes, they certainly are!
The Dubai Seawings seaplane tour is treated like any other flight, with rules and regulations adhering to the protocols of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority. Before take-off, there will be a screening of the in-flight safety demo video. All the seaplane pilots go through a long and rigorous flight training process and have thousands of hours of flying experience. The pilot that we had Rajeev, was very attentive and made us feel at ease throughout the spectacular flight.
Review on Trip Advisor
The experience was completely mind-blowing & amazing, some breath-taking moments like never before, more than what I expected, flying so close to most of the Dubai’s main attractions was fantastic, we’re living in Dubai for many years but I must say the best way to explore Dubai’s iconic views is by a seaplane, me and my husband had a lot of fun..!!!
Of course, respecting the social distancing norms and preventive measures, I have to give an extra 5 star for that, I super recommend it!!!
I would love to come back again with my friends & family, this is something incredible and a remarkable experience.
