I had the amazing privilege to complete a bucket-list activity that I wanted to do for eons, and that was to fly in a seaplane over Dubai. The flight was chartered by Seawings Dubai. I even sat in the cockpit "co-piloting."

This once in a lifetime experience began from the Yas Viceroy Marina, Abu Dhabi travelling down the coast to Dubai. I flew over all the cities icons, from the Palm Jebel Ali & Palm Jumeirah to the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab 7star Hotel, and Sheikh Zayed Rd. (Dubai’s ‘main street’) finally landing 40 minutes later at the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.

The staff was so pleasant, and the whole process was super-easy. I felt like James Bond for a moment…then I landed, and it was back to reality. Ha! Book your flight here.

If you’re not headed to Dubai just yet, an equally awesome experience is to charter a seaplane locally for an island-hoping adventure. Seaplane flying showcases the islands in a whole new perspective, contact Seabird Air, based in Nassau, NP for an excursion package.

Happy Travels!
