Flight experience
Seaplane tours offer a spacious cabin with luxury leather seats, and every seat is a guaranteed window seat. The cabin is quiet and you can easily talk to friends and family during the flight. You’ll experience an exhilarating water take-off and landing.

For helicopter tours the cabin is smaller, and only the outside seats are guaranteed window seats. It’s a fully immersive and noisy environment, it’s not easy to talk so you must communicate via radio and headsets.

Hopefully you should now have all the information you need to make a decision on the Dubai helicopter tour price vs seaplane Dubai price, and remember cost isn’t the only thing to consider.
