The Seawings Gold Experience is the ultimate option for private tours. The shimmering waters of Dubai Creek are where the UAE’s first ever airport was located. Back in the 1930s and 1940s, luxury seaplanes would land here on their long journey from Britain to India. It was the era’s most elite method of travel. Fast-forward to modern times and the seaplane experience has been revived in all its pomp and razzmatazz. A beautiful water take-off helps recreate these historic journeys, using the same strip of water as the first plane to ever take-off from Dubai. The skyline has changed dramatically since the 1940s but as the plane ascends you’ll still get a genuine sense of the city’s history and heritage. And after your scenic loop of the city, you’ll swoop back and enjoy a beautiful landing back at the Dubai Creek.
