Dubai’s coastline is home to pristine sea waters that add life to the modern structures of the city. It combines a perfect touch of nature and gives an excellent space for entertainment and leisure beyond the streets of Dubai. And the best way to explore the Dubai waters beyond the Abra rides is a dhow cruise.
Dhow Cruises offer a perfect blend of luxury, leisure, and nature. One look at the floating dhows, and you know there is nothing like a peaceful evening laced with gleaming city lights. While the Dhow cruises run along two strips of Dubai- the Creek and the Marina, we. So if you are looking for modern lights, then Dubai Marina Cruise is where you need to be. However, if you prefer a float down the olden Dubai, Creek maybe IT for you. Yet we love ourselves entertainment, modernity, and a blend of serenity- the perfect Dubai Vibe- so Marina it is!
Dubai Marina & Dhows
If you have been around Dubai Marina, it is pretty hard to believe that the waters there are not natural. Or that they didn’t exist a few years ago. The artificial canal city is a beautiful blend of waters mixing with modern architecture.
While the traditional dhows have open decks for you to enjoy the views, the more modernly built ones offer luxurious facilities ranging from private cabins to swimming pools as well. If you’re a tourist, you can also buy yourself a guided tour as well.
The Cruise Experience
The cruise has both the things you can ask for in a great evening- great live entertainment and delicious buffet spreads. Enjoy a wide variety of cuisines from Indian specials like kadais to Asian chowmeins. One thing is for sure! You will not have to compromise on food and taste at a cruise.
When it comes to live entertainment, there are kandoora performances as well as live tricks. Some high-end cruises also offer karaoke systems for you to sing your heart out over here. That’s not all! Besides the live entertainment and food, you can also enjoy bars and sheeshas at the cruise. The cruises are a perfect place to move beyond clubs and pubs and get down to the party.
The Cruise Views
This is probably why you are here. So what are the visual treats you will be witnessing on your journey? The marina waters are dotted with majestic views of modern architecture. If you are taking the cruise at night, the sparkle of the buildings in the backdrop of the midnight sky is a visual treat that you will enjoy.
Float by Dubai’s premier waterfront at the Jumeirah Beach Resort. See the glistening restaurants, clubs, and The Beach outlets from afar. Head to the Blue Water Lagoons and watch the sunset into oblivion. And see Dubai’s upcoming attraction Ain Dubai- a gigantic Ferris Wheel perched at the foot of the ocean. You will love every bit of the modern scenery here.
Most cruises start off from Pier 7 at Marina. However, do ask for a confirmation from your tour operator and if they provide transfers or not.
