“Enjoy the museum from the stillness of the Arabian Sea.” Sea Hawk Water Sports & Adventures
Looking for a unique activity in Abu Dhabi? I highly recommend booking a kayaking trip around the Louvre Abu Dhabi with Sea Hawk Water Sports & Adventures. Kayakers can enjoy the museum’s iconic architecture from the Arabian Sea in either single or double kayaks.
Sea Hawk, who specialise in non-motorised water sports, offer daily guided tours to see the famous art museum from a new perspective. Sunrise or sunset tours are available as well as others in the afternoon and evening. The tour takes you around the perimeter of the building, in and out of the inner waterways and under the famous geometric dome. You can also kayak around the museum under the stars on a special full moon tour – read more about that HERE
Kayakers meet at the back of the museum (past Aptitude cafe) where there’s also changing rooms if required. A short safety briefing is given by Sea Hawk staff before everyone is provided with a life jacket, complimentary water and dry bags to protect camera equipment and phones. The guide leads the group on the trip which is roughly 45 minutes to an hour long with plenty of opportunities to grab some photos.
As one of the UAE’s eco-tourism companies, Sea Hawk also offers daily kayak eco-tours through Abu Dhabi’s Eastern Mangroves National Park. This is a perfect trip for nature lovers who can learn more about the natural beauty and inhabitants of the mangroves. Other activities include Stand-Up paddle (SUP) tours, camping trips and Kayak & BBQ trips.
I bought my family gift vouchers for the Louvre excursion, an easy online process and a great present for residents and visitors alike. Vouchers can be purchased for all Sea Hawk activities. This is definitely an activity worth booking, don’t forget your camera to snap some amazing memories!
