During a 30-minute ride in an "abra" water taxi, take in the illuminations of the Dubai Mall Fountain Show. The Dubai Fountain is the tallest performing fountain in the world, and it is a visually stunning display of water, music, and light in Downtown Dubai.

The Dubai Fountain has a length of over 900 feet (274 meters), is on the 30-acre (120,000 m2) Burj Lake, and plays a variety of music.

On Burj Lake, board a traditional wooden boat and cruise past the Burj Khalifa, Souk Al Bahar, and Palace, three of the city's most famous landmarks. Before you take your position for a grandstand view of the illuminations, take in the stunning skyline of the city from the water.

You get an exclusive and intimate look at the visual spectrum of over 1,000 water expressions because there are only 6 people on each boat.

A visual spectacle with 6,000 lights, 25 colored projectors, and 22,000 gallons (83,000 liters) of airborne water will have you in awe as the fountains light up! Watch a breath-taking dance of light and water choreographed to classical, Arabic, and world music.

Me and my wife did not expect to have so much fun just by riding the boat but no, Fountain show is only the beginning and when you ride the boat then you get the full experience of Happiness and pleasure of being in Dubai especially this boat ride with Fountain show. we loved it so much that we both get emotional and highly recommended.

We really enjoyed seeing the fountains from the lake. It is possible to view them for free from the quayside but we thought a boat would be more interesting and to be fair I preferred this option. The meeting point is on the side of the lake. We booked for 21:15 not being sure when it got dark and what we were doing for the day. We arrived earlier and the staff member was very accommodating and let us board an earlier boat. This is a shared boat with upto about 10 people. We took a gentle run...

Don’t get me wrong you got a great view of the fountains but if I’m honest - I think I would have rather saved my money and just watched them from the sides like everyone else. You share the boat with other people too so they’re all trying to take pictures too. So for me it wasn’t bad, I would have just rather watched it from the sidelines and moved on when it had finished. The boat ride doesn’t take you anywhere you can see from the sides.
