Head down to the Louvre for a peaceful afternoon on the pristine blue lagoons that surround the beautiful dome structure. Weave your way through the different photo points, under bridges and through the canals.
Sea Hawk :
Sea Hawk has a great set up for an enjoyable experience. Choose between a double or single kayak, strap on your life jacket and away you go! The guides are accommodating and so friendly, teaching you the basics of paddling and kayak safety. Sea Hawk provides water and a dry bag to keep your belongings safe. I would highly recommend you take your phone for the stunning photo ops through the tour.
The Tour :
The hour-long tour takes you to multiple photo points around the Louvre. Our guide gave us some great pointers about the architecture of the dome and the intricacies of the design which only added to the awe of the whole experience. The tour took us around the entire perimeter with views of the ocean, Abu Dhabi skyline, and the Sheikh Zayed bridge. Exploring the nooks and crannies of each waterway was the highlight of my experience. I did the afternoon tour and it was absolutely perfect, I can’t imagine how beautiful a sunrise paddle would be.
The tours are available at the below times for AED 126 per person.
