Born and raised in Manhattan, New York, Captain Sam Ibrahim dreamed to one day live somewhere where he could jet ski all year round. The first time Sam used a jet ski was in the summer of 1993, and he has been in love ever since.
Sam is well traveled around the globe, and early on in his travels he became interested in motorsports, becoming an avid on and off-roader, as well as becoming a licensed, Jet Ski safety instructor.
Sam moved to the UAE in July 2007 and quickly excelled as UAE country product manager for water vehicles, with Yamaha.
During his time in the UAE, Sam made great strides to insure the safety of UAE sea-goers. Together with Yamaha Motors Japan, he implemented the Yamaha Riding Academy to train users on the safe and fun usage of PWC’S.
He also conducted a safety campaign, in collaboration with Yamaha, MTM Powersports, the Dubai Marine Police, and Dubai Maritime City Authority, which had wide media coverage as well as Royal Family participants.
Conceptualized in the middle of 2009, Captain Sam’s has grown within the tourism industry and by 2013 proven to be one of the leading water-sports, jet ski tour and rental companies in Abu Dhabi.
Leading though an unrelenting passion for the sea and dedication to share these experiences with everyone the Captain meets. We will meet as strangers and leave as friends, is one of the most fundamental principles of Captain Sam’s.
With a location at Al Bateen, Captain Sam’s is always an easy option, with pick up and drop off services available from most hotels in Abu Dhabi.
Captain Sam’s is well known with hotel concierge services, something we are very proud of. Word of mouth is one of our most important marketing tools, and our high standard of safety and devotion to ensuring clients have an experience of a life-time, reflects the hotels vision.
Worth finding... Sam’s Jet Ski tour was the highlight of the holiday. Sam was extremely accommodating both in the run up to the trip and on the day. The experience was both exhilarating and memorable with some fantastic sights of Abu Dhabi and the local islands. Sam captured pictures and videos for us that we will be looking back at for years to come... literally the best holiday activity we have ever done
Captain Sam hooked it up! We all learned how to flyboard and Got to take out top of the line jet skis. Definitely going to be calling Capt Sam very soon
Had a brilliant day out on the water with Sam. Got to see the city from the other side which was great. Sam was really organised in letting us know all the details to get there and how the day would work. My partner loved the speed, he had a bit of time on his own at one point going faster while I chilled on the beach. Then we had a bit more of a tour and finished off with coffee. Loved it and would absolutely do it again and recommend to anyone.
Amazing experience in Abu Dhabi , I went with my girlfriend and we had so much fun , the owner is an amazing person , the material is really good , the views were stunning , everything was great I truly recommend , we will be back next month for sure
