Highlights
  • See the performance by the world’s biggest choreographed fountain system from a small boat on the lake

  • Make Dubai memories to last a lifetime from one of the city's most popular attractions
Description

Dubai doesn't do things in half measures. The choreographed lights, music and precision aquatic geysers are a great example of the Emirates 'more is more' philosophy. Board a boat with up to 6 people and watch the show from the best seats. See over 6,000 lights and feel the rush of 85,000 liters of leaping water up close (while staying nice and dry of course)!

The Dubai Fountain is the world’s biggest choreographed fountain system, positioned in an enormous 30-acre manmade lake. Boating through this lake, in the shadow of the world's tallest building, would be something to remember, but to be one of the few to watch its dazzling nightly show from the lake itself is on a whole other level.

This spectacular performance - witnessed by thousands every day - uses 6,600 lights, 25 colored projectors and 85,000 liters of airborne water. The crowds will be jostling for the best view on the promenade around the perimeter, but your views will be unobstructed and magical.

Enjoy the mind-blowing choreography of lights, water and all kinds of music, from Arabic, to classical and back again. With no more than six people per boat, you'll get a truly unique and almost personal experience, up close to one of the most impressive water displays known to man.

Splash out on one of Dubai's coolest experiences!

The boat ride is a must if you want to watch the fountain show in style.
Outside the lake and around the mall other visitors are watching but you can watch at comfort and be closer to the action.
Highly recommended.

The ride was great, felt like in Venice on gondola but with skyscapers. The show was great, nice view. Would recommend, very romantic. We had problems to find a place to pick up the tickets, at the end we found out it is the same place as buying ticket to Burz Khalifa.

You can get just as good a view from side of the lake.

Not really worth the lake ride. If it is not crowded, view is very good on the side of the lake too
