Dubai: 5April 2015: Rixos The Palm Dubai, the ultimate lifestyle destination on Palm Jumeirah, has launched the UAE's first Seabreacher experience that is open to the public in partnership with Water Adventure Dubai.
The Seabreacher, also dubbed 'the sports car of the ocean', is a two-seater, fully-submersible watercraft that is modeled on the shape of man's most feared predator - the shark.

In addition to the regular motorised and non-motorised activities available at the resort, beach goers can also experience the Jetovator, a flying water powered bike.
