What You Can Expect
Dubai Creek snakes through the neighborhood, and many say a trip along the stretch of water is the best way to experience Deira. Head to the waterside where your dhow awaits, and hop on board to enjoy your 2-hour cruise. Still in use today for shipping goods around the Indian Ocean, the traditional dhows are a common sight on the waters of Dubai Creek.
Make your way to the lavish onboard buffet, feast your eyes on the food, and then select whatever delicacies you wish to fill your plate. Soft drinks plus an enticing mix of traditional Emirati and international food is on offer; see the sample menu below. Sit down to eat while watching the sights of Deira at night, and admire the glittering lights of Dubai’s skyscrapers in the distance.
Having cruised back and forth along the creek, return to the water’s edge and finally finish your evening experience with a drop-off at your hotel.
