Island tour

This full moon kayak tour takes place at the Louvre Abu Dhabi

See one of Abu Dhabi’s most incredible buildings up close, after dark.

What could be better than a day spent soaking up the curiosities of Louvre Abu Dhabi? How about a night exploring the museum after dark? That’s exactly what you’ll get with this collaboration between the incredible flagship of culture and water sports Sea Hawk.

As the soft light of a full moon illuminates the skies over Saadiyat Island next weekend, Louvre Abu Dhabi’s Sea-Hawk guided kayak tours return. Taking place on both Friday August 12 and Saturday August 13, the full moon kayaking session has two start times: 8pm and 9:30pm, both of which allow you to appreciate the Louvre illuminated by full lunar luminosity.
