5. Flyboarding

6. Fly Fishing

If you are travelling with your spouse and want to try out a water sport together, then Fly Fishing can be fun. You and your partner will be seated on an E-shaped inflatable strapped safely to speedboats. Experience a joint thrill of the speed and the wind in your face as you go past Dubai’s skyline. Our agents at GT Holidays can pre-book the activity through our Dubai honeymoon packages.

7. Water Skiing

If you are confused about which water sports adventure to go for, we suggest you ride the water ski. Water skiing is one of the best water sports you can enjoy through a watersport rental in Dubai. The powerful machine offers a thrilling ride by letting you zip along the water’s surface. Similar to skiing on snow, water skiing is one of the best Dubai water activities for speed seekers, where the speed gets determined by the speedboat that tugs the ski board.

8. Wakeboarding

Want to try something a bit more challenging than water skiing? Try Wakeboarding, where manoeuvring on the water gets all the more exciting! As one of the popular water sports activities in Dubai, Wakeboarding allows you to indulge in stunts and other acrobatics, unlike the waterski.

9. Kitesurfing

You will find beginners and professional surfers on their waterboards tied to giant parachutes balancing over the waves while they kitesurf. You can try kitesurfing through our Dubai tour packages to experience the sheer power of the wind and try to harness it with the help of the wave board.
