Sea Cruiser Boat Tours
A business venture from a young Emirati with a passion for sharing his love of the sea, Sea Cruiser operates two ADTA tourism-licensed GulfCraft boats, which each hold 18 passengers, two crew members, a professional pilot and lifeguard. Each boat has covered cabins with large glass windows for sightseeing and is specially designed to accommodate divers.
Each boat also comes equipped with GPS navigation, tracking equipment and DSC VHF radios, which automatically transmit the boat’s position in an emergency. Individual life jackets and safety equipment are provided. Sea Cruiser tours give guests the best Abu Dhabi has to offer – from a two hour tour of the capital city’s famous Corniche to diving, snorkelling and fishing trips and all-day cruises of Abu Dhabi’s stunning natural islands and emerald green ocean. All tours begin at the Fish Market pier at the end of the Corniche, just before Mina Zayed. They are available at pre-booked times from 8.30am to 8pm seven days a week.
