HERO OdySea's self-drive boat tour has a top deal for UAE residents

4 April 2021 - Time Out Dubai

If you’re looking for a fun way to keep cool this summer, HERO OdySea – Dubai’s unique self-drive boat tour operator – is offering UAE residents an exclusive 20 percent off their signature boat tours.

As the weather slowly heats up (hello, summer), you’re probably looking for ways to beat the heat, and the award-winning Hero Experiences Group, which HERO OdySea is a part of, has the perfect activity to get you out of the house – and keep cool.

HERO OdySea has been awarded both the UAE and the Middle East’s Leading Boat Tour Operator at the World Travel Awards 2020 and what makes this experience unforgettable is that guests can drive their own boat along Dubai’s iconic coastline.

Reaching speeds of 50km per hour, the HERO boats are safe, stable and untippable, and UAE residents can take in Dubai’s famous landmarks from their own boat and with a generous discount, too.

Not only are the photo opportunities endless (get ready for plenty of likes on the ‘gram), you’ll be able to experience our wonderful city from the open ocean as you captain your own vessel.

The professional and friendly guides will be on hand to ensure you have an unforgettable experience.

The experience kick starts in Jumeirah’s Fishing Harbour 2 where you’ll meet your guide and fellow captains and go through a quick safety briefing. If you’re feeling slightly nervous, fret not – the boats are completely safe and you don’t need a license or any previous experience.

And then the adventure starts. You’ll be able to stop at some of Dubai’s most famous landmarks like the Burj Al Arab and Atlantis The Palm, plus a freestyle trip before going to the final stop, where you will be able to see the record-breaking Burj Khalifa from a distance.

The UAE residents’ discount of 20 percent is valid on their signature boat tours until Monday May 31 meaning it’s time to get out there and explore the ocean – before the hottest time of the year.

Get ready to get some cool snaps for the ‘gram and be the captain for the day – just don’t forget your Emirates ID.

Ongoing until Mon May 31. For bookings visit www.hero-dubai.com, call 04 440 9827, or e-mail [email protected]ero-dubai.com.
