The Marine Club sits on the sea in the quaint Emirate of Umm Al Quwain, from where it takes its name. It is a secret because Umm Al Quwain has yet to develop into a metropolis like Dubai or Abu Dhabi, and it does not draw tourists or even local visitors on a large scale. This is one of the charms of both the city and the Marine Club. It is an understated city, which prides itself on local culture, on its atmosphere and, of course, on its location beside the sea.
Wakeboarding is a rapidly growing sport in the UAE, even in the hot and sweaty summer it doesn’t hinder this sport. According to many wakeboarding fans, the waters surrounding the Marine Club is the best riding location in the UAE.
Kayaking is an increasingly popular past time and the Marine Club is a great place to start. You can rent, purchase and experience paddling at its best, between the islands of Umm Al Quwain. The mangroves are a very short paddle from the Club where turtles, birds and other marine life abound.
Send them to the playground and relax around the pool for a while. The playground is safe and in sight of where you will be sitting, enjoying a meal or a swim. The restaurant opens on to the swimming pool, so all your comforts are close to hand.
If the club launches your boat with the tractor, then there is a small launching and retrieving fee, depending on the size of your vessel. If you are launching yourself with your own car, then there is no charge.
