Embark on a cruise around Dubai's World Islands. An icon of this manmade metropolis, you would be forgiven for mistaking these sand islands shaped like the world map for a Maldivian paradise. From a luxury yacht, explore these beautiful and exclusive white sand islands in complete privacy. Return to shore and embark on a desert safari.

After a day of adventure and discovery, retire to your luxury yacht and get ready for a night to remember.

From the rocky brown mountains to the affluent cosmopolitan skyscrapers in downtown Dubai, the coastline shows how the city has rapidly emerged from the desert.

Enjoy a cocktail under the warm Middle Eastern sun and watch the Abu Dhabi skyline grow from the deck of your private superyacht. Be sure you are on deck as you pull into the iconic Yas Marina. A yachting experience unlike any other, this purpose built superyacht harbour is surrounded with glittering architectural wonders that - from a yacht - are simply breathtaking.
