Seaplane Coastal Pearl Tour
Up until the 1960s, the rich harvest of pearls that was available from the sea off the coast of Dubai was the main source of wealth for the inhabitants of what was then a small fishing village. Since the discovery of oil, Dubai has rapidly blossomed into one of the world's most exciting cities. A trip on the Seaplane Coastal Pearl Tour gives a unique perspective on the city's past and present.
The seaplane leaves from Dubai harbour and flies over the Jumeirah region of Dubai. This stretch of coast is home to the world famous artificial Palm Islands. These are formed from sand that was dredged from the sea bed in order to create a series of palm tree shapes. The islands are home to some of the world's most luxurious hotels and resorts.
The same developer that created the Palm islands has gone on to top that development with a new chain of artificial islands called the World Islands. These are constructed in the shape of the continents of the world and include more than 300 separate islands that are divided between luxury resorts, private residences and community facilities. The tour takes these in after flying over the Palm Islands.
The island section of the tour gives participants the opportunity to see the extraordinary Burj Al Arab from above. This hotel, which is frequently cited as the most luxurious on Earth, is shaped to look like a billowing sail and has become an iconic symbol of Dubai. The Burj Al Arab is situated on its own artificial island around 300 metres from Jumeirah Beach.
Following on from the islands, the seaplane heads downtown. This gives tourists the opportunity to take in the visual spectacle that is offered by the astonishing architecture that jostles for place in the city's business district. This includes the Burj Dubai, which is the tallest building in the world, alongside a range of other eye popping skyscrapers.
Anyone who wants to see the whole of Dubai in one breathtaking trip should make a point of booking the Seaplane Coastal Pearl Tour. There is no better way to see what makes the city so special.
