Dhow Cruise Dubai Creek

Dubai Creek is one of the most historical parts of Dubai. It is also known as Old Dubai. Book our four-star Dhow Cruise Dubai Creek and explore old Dubai under the moonlight. Historically Dubai Creek is divided into two parts known as Bur Dubai and Deira.   In the 19th Century members of the Bani Yas tribe settled here establishing the Al Maktoum dynasty in the city. The creek was incapable of supporting large-scale transportation in the early 20th Century, however, it served as a small port for Dhows coming from as far as India or East Africa.

Dhow Cruise Dubai Creek is a two-hour dinner cruise. Explore the architecture and heritage of old Dubai once the dhow cruise starts sailing along Dubai Creek. The two-hour cruise includes a delicious Four Star international buffet dinner, water, soft drinks, vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. Furthermore during Dhow Cruise Dubai Creek enjoy live entertainment shows, background Arabic, and international music. The starting point is near the famous Rolex twin Towers. The Abra Dock located in Bur Dubai is one of the most traditional and famous modes of transportation while crossing the water. They charge as low as AED 1 for crossing the water in Dubai Creek.

It’s an ideal place for couples, friends, and family members to have a ride on a traditional wooden dhow cruise for lovely sightseeing and dinner. Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise can be booked for a small and large group of guests. The cruise is available for exclusive basis booking as well for a large number of guests and further arrangements can be customized as per the requirements. The double-decker Cruise has both lower and upper decks. The lower deck is fully air-conditioned while the upper deck is open air.
