Ajman will now offer regular flights on the Cessna 208 Caravan Seaplanes over sights including the Al Zorah Mangrove Reserve and Marina, and Ajman’s city centre.
Al Geziry said, “Our aim is to ensure Ajman is among the most attractive holiday destinations in the region, offering a variety of options for the discerning traveller and local residents. These Seaplane tours add to our growing portfolio of high quality tourist excursions and we look forward to the creative packaging of different attractions giving our customers the best experiences possible.”
He continued, “We are looking at different pillars of tourism. Tourists are increasingly interested in adventure-based activities and we are providing products and services in that segment to please our clients. We also had a golfing tournament in October last year and we are planning to expand on that this year.
“Ajman Pearl is a new experience launched in the mangrove area, which will include a look into the pearl-diving heritage of the region and participants will get oysters, which may or may not have pearls in them.”
Earlier this year, Al Zorah, a lifestyle and leisure destination in Ajman, expanded its portfolio of sporting activities to offer ultimate thrilling watersports experiences. Al Zorah will host several motorised and non-motorised sports including jet-skiing, wake boarding, flyboarding, kayaking, paddle boating, water skiing, kite-boarding and much more.
Imad Dana, chief executive officer of Al Zorah Development Company, said: “The introduction of the leisure and recreational activities at Al Zorah further reinforces our objective to offer a distinctive tourist and lifestyle destination. Watersport enthusiasts and families looking for an exciting vacation and an intuitive experience can escape the bustle of city-life and create unforgettable memories at Al Zorah.”
He further added: “Our highly reputed operators – Adventure Leisure Tourism and Quest for Adventure – will ensure our guests receive the highest quality of service and have them experience the best watersports and rides, as they enjoy the magnificent views of the mangroves, the golf course, and waterfront.”
