A dinner cruise along Dubai Creek is one of Dubai’s must-dos, and a relaxing break from the city’s high-octane attractions. This evening cruise does it in style, on a prettily lit wooden Arabian dhow boat with a whirling dervish 'tanoura' show as you dine. Admire the lights of Deira and Bur Dubai as you sail, and enjoy an international buffet dinner with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks. Hotel pickup and drop-off included.
  • Arabian 'dhow' boat dinner cruise on Dubai Creek
  • Savor a delicious international buffet as you sail along the creek
  • Soak in the illuminated skyline, including the Gold Souk, bridges, and mosques
  • Enjoy a traditional 'tanoura' whirling dervish dance show
  • Unlimited non-alcoholic beverages included
  • Pickup and drop-off at Dubai hotels by air-conditioned minivan
Start your experience with an early evening hotel pickup in Dubai, and travel by shared, air-conditioned minivan to the departure pier on Dubai Creek.
On arrival, admire the light-festooned wooden dhow boat that will take you on your cruise. Then, be welcomed by the crew as you step aboard and take in the sights from the open-air, upper deck.
Enjoy the pleasant breezes as you sail on the creek, and admire the views of Deira’s and Bur Dubai’s illuminated skyline. Glide by the glittering lights of the Gold Souk, and have your camera ready as you pass floodlit bridges, mosques, and other monuments.
Then, enjoy a delicious buffet dinner as you soak in the magical atmosphere and setting. Savor a selection of Arabic and international dishes with unlimited sodas and other non-alcoholic beverages.
As you dine and relax, enjoy live entertainment in the shape of a fast-moving, traditional tanoura show, with whirling dervish style dancers spinning across the floor in multi-colored costumes.
After docking back at the pier, enjoy a convenient ride back to your Dubai hotel, bringing your experience to an end.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to others. The crew were polite and hospitable, food was great, music and whole cruise above average.

I felt this evening dhow dinner cruise was ok , because of the traffic in Dubai it took nearly one hour to reach where the boat departed from
the cruise itself was quite good , just a pity there is no commentary on board to point out all the famous landmarks we were passing
food was amazing with loads to choose from , and plenty to eat , the entertainment on board was very good
if you have a few hours spare one evening while in Dubai , then this is worth doing

The trip was not really spectacular in that there was NO commentary on the places that we passed by. It would have been great to have been able to identify some of the landmarks. Overall it was OK !
One suggestion is to stop advertising that alcohol was available on the cruise ! Apparently, NONE of the tours sold any alcohol, NOT that one must have alcohol to enjoy any trip BUT being able to enjoy a glass of wine or beer during dinner and after a hot and humid day would have been great.
