What You Can Expect

Dhow Boat Dinner Cruise in Dubai

See the sky line of Dubai from its oldest area, Dubai Creek

Leave your central Dubai hotel by air-conditioned minibus and travel to the cruise jetty on Dubai Creek in the city’s Deira district.
Snaking between Deira, the heart of traditional Dubai, and Bur Dubai to the south, the creek winds past many of Dubai’s best-known landmarks, including the National Bank of Dubai, the Spice Souk and Al Maktoum Bridge.
At the jetty, take a moment to admire your beautifully illuminated dhow — a traditional Arabian trading boat of the type once used to ship goods between the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean.
Then, step aboard and feast your eyes on Deira’s sparkling skyline as your dhow sails up and down the gentle creek waters for the next two hours.
Snap photos of Deira and the skyscrapers of downtown Dubai on the horizon, and then, enjoy a sumptuous buffet dinner of traditional Emirati and international cuisine. Selections may vary, but you can expect dishes such as assorted Arabic salads, grilled fish and meat kebabs, as well as pasta, steak and a tempting range of desserts.
Take your pick from the dishes, and wash them down with complimentary sodas, as well as additional drinks (at own expense) from the onboard bar.
As you eat, soak in the glittering city lights, revel in the cool evening breezes and enjoy the company of your fellow diners.
Then, when your cruise finishes, step ashore and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

This tour was brilliant, food was amazing and plenty of it too. We went for my fiancés birthday meal, and found it soo romantic. The photographer took our pics but was unable to print them after we paid him for 2 pics but instead he sent us all the images he took on watsapp. We were happy with that.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to do a detailed sailing of the dubai creek. The dhow takes one on the entire length of the dubai creek close to the dubai marina, right upto the mouth of the creek where it meets the arabian sea. The customer service of the staff is great. The food is very good.The dhow and the toilets are clean. It would definitely be a huge advantage for the company if they would would have live local music or a henna artist on board so that the younger tourists are entertained a little bit more.

This was a really great time. The tour was wonderful, the food great and there was even an entertainer that came and danced on the boat as we cruised peacefully down the Dubai Creek. It was very cool to see the city at night and to also see all the lit-up boats that were moving along the creek with us. The only downside was the transportation from the hotel. The driver was insane and we feared for our lives numerous times.
