Jetski rental in Dubai: How does it work?

To rent your jetski in Dubai, you need to use an agency. There are two ways of doing this. Firstly, you can do it online, via the agencies' websites. Secondly, you can visit the agency in Dubai.

How much does a jetski rental in Dubai cost?

The rental price varies according to the option chosen and the agency. It also depends on the current rate of change. For a 30-minute jetski rental, expect to pay between 84 and 86 euros. But for an excursion (1 hour), you need to add 50 euros to the 30-minute price.

Alternatively, to hire a cheap jetski in Dubai, visit the websites of several agencies and make a comparison to choose the best deal.

Flyboarding in Dubai, an alternative to jetskiing

An adrenalin-fuelled water activity, flyboarding is a newcomer to the scene, but is becoming increasingly popular in Dubai and around the world. Handling this device is not as simple as handling a jetski. That's why a professional instructor accompanies you during your water sports activity. Please note that this activity also requires proof of identity.

The aquarium

The Dubai Aquarium is one of the top 10 must-sees and/or must-dos on your first trip to Dubai.

Note that in addition to the classic aquarium visit, which costs around 30 euros (depending on the rate of change), other options are available, but at additional costs. They are also more expensive. For example, you can feed the stingrays, go cage diving with the sharks or take a tour on a transparent-bottomed boat.

The speed boat

The yacht

For a stylish cruise on the high seas, a yacht is your best ally. It allows you to discover the city's major attractions (Palm Jumeirah Island, Dubai Marin and the Burj Al Arab). You can also create and personalize your own itinerary to suit your own interests.
