Two-for-one deals

HERO Boat Tours

Hero boat tour - summer deals in UAE

Enjoy the cool spray of ocean mist out at sea with Hero Boat Tours this summer. The boat tours are a fun way for guests to explore Dubai’s coastline while playing captain. That’s right, this means that you will be able to drive your own boat while making pitstops at landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Atlantis the Palm, Dubai Eye and Palm Jumeirah. The tours are guided, so you’ll have someone to help you out. Boat tours can either be 60 or 90 minutes.

If this sounds like something you want to try, take note as you can also get free tickets to The Dubai Balloon. A regular boat pass will earn you a regular pass to The Dubai Balloon, while a private Hero Boat Tour will get you a Fast Pass ticket to The Dubai Balloon. The deal is valid until July 31, but the tickets to The Dubai Ballon will be valid for six months. Use the promo code HOTDB when checking out.
