A guide to water adventures in Dubai: Stand Up Paddleboarding

SeaYou Surfing

Dubai’s calm seas and current balmy temperatures make the emirate perfect for trying all different kinds of watersports. Whether you want to check out stand up paddleboarding or get to grips with sailing, dive on in to our guide.

Looking out over the Arabian Gulf from Sofitel The Palm, Palm Jumeirah, SeaYou has the ideal base for an experienced watersports company. From the hotel’s watersports centre, the seasoned instructors offer kayak and stand up paddle board (SUP) tours around Palm Jumeirah, SUP fitness, dragon boat Dubai riding and more.

SUP yoga and Pilates were the hottest health trends of 2017 and anyone eager to tone up while afloat will benefit from a SeaYou SUP fitness voucher pack, starting from AED 575. Maybe you want to experience the thrill of zipping across the ocean as the spray whips around you? Windsurfing lessons are priced from AED 850, or why not challenge yourself to learn how to operate a dinghy or catamaran? Weather permitting, you can hit the water every day from 9am to sundown.
