To further enhance Dubai’s competitiveness in a bid to make it a global destination for recreational marine tourism, the Dubai Maritime City Authority has launched the first services of the proactive Sea Dubai initiative.

Sea Dubai will establish clear and definitive frameworks for recreational marine craft licensing regulations and mechanisms in the emirate.

As part of the first phase of Sea Dubai implementation, the Burj Al Arab Area has been officially designated as new berth where recreational yachts and luxurious boats can anchor, and marine leisure activities can be held, while the Jumana West Marina, or Bulgari Marina, will be the dedicated anchoring area for small-medium-sized yachts and 100 m vessels. The latter has a maximum capacity of five vessels.
