Morning
Set sail with the Noukhada Adventure Company for a bright and early eco-tour, kayaking through Abu Dhabi natural eastern mangrove forests dotted around the plethora of islands in view of the rising city skyline. An experienced guide will share details on natural wildlife habitats and point out some of the iconic buildings transforming the horizon; then you will be stopping for refreshments on one of the pristine islands.

Arrange for Sea Cruiser Boat Tours to pick you up from an agreed destination on the water, and transfer you to Abu Dhabi's signature entertainment destination, Yas Island. You'll arrive in style, and air conditioned comfort, to the 143 berth Yas Marina which overlooks the Yas Marina F1ª Circuit. Experience one of the world's most technologically advanced motorsports circuits by taking the official Yas Marina Circuit Venue Tour. Escorted track tours in an air conditioned coach with a trained tour guide provide an inside view of the pits, team garages and the working environments of the F1™ teams in the Paddock Club's team villas. The tour ends with a photo finish opportunity on the Main Straight podium.

Lunch

Delight in the art of cuisine at one of the fine dining restaurants at the extraordinary The Yas Viceroy Hotel the only one in the world to straddle an F1 circuit.

Afternoon

Transfer from Yas Island along the incredible Sheikh Khalifa Highway, connecting to the 27 sqm Saadiyat Island which is undergoing a remarkable transformation to become a world class leisure, business and cultural hub. Saadiyat Island will eventually house the world's largest single concentration of premier cultural assets, including the Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.

A permanent interactive display, 'The Saadiyat Story' at the island's dedicated exhibition centre Manarat Al Saadiyat, brings the history and cultural vision of Saadiyat to life. Take an afternoon break in the centre’s Al Fanr restaurant.

Evening

Finish your perfect island day with a visit to Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, a magnificent 18 hole 'ocean' masterpiece designed by golfing legend Gary Player. Squeeze in a game of golf or kick back and relax at the club's signature Hawksbill Restaurant with its sweeping views overlooking the rolling cascades of the course.
