Board a beautifully illuminated ‘dhow’ — a traditional Arabian sail boat — and drift along winding Dubai Creek as you gaze at twinkling landmarks such as the Al Maktoum Bridge, the National Bank of Dubai and downtown Dubai’s skyscrapers in the distance. Then, with the creek waters gently lapping at your Dubai dhow cruise boat, savor a scrumptious buffet of tasty Emirati and international dishes, with complimentary sodas and additional drinks (own expense).

  • 2-hour Dubai dinner cruise aboard a traditional dhow
  • Cruise along Dubai Creek to see the neighborhood of Deira from the water
  • Pass Deira’s working souqs and admire the illuminations of central Dubai in the distance
  • Enjoy traditional Emirati specialties and international cuisine from the onboard buffet
  • Feast on treats such as chickpea and potato curry and umali (a warm Emirati dessert)
  • Make use of a hotel pickup and drop-off from central Dubai

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.
