The journey takes just 45 minutes
Seawings Seaplane Tours has launched a new service – transporting passengers from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah in less than an hour, taking in some of the region’s most iconic sights along the way. Even better, you can make the journey without the hassle of visiting an airport, and it costs just AED1,295 per person.
The service has been made possible with a little help from the Hilton Garden Inn Ras Al Khaimah, which recently opened a new jetty at its premises. This waterside hotel will use the facility to introduce a whole host of watersports, and also provide somewhere for the Seawings passengers to disembark.
Each seaplane holds six-eight people, with two flights from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah per week. The aircraft take off from the Dubai Creekside port, passing the Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab, then heading north, over the Hajah Mountains, and landing at Ras Al Khaimah Corniche, parking up at the Hilton Garden Inn – all in just 45 minutes.
The return flight is from the same jetty, returning to Dubai Creek 45 minutes later. Use the time in between to explore Ras Al Khaimah or stay over at the hotel. Seawings even suggests using the service if you’re in a rush for a business meeting in either city.
