Immerse yourself in the charming soul of Dubai at night with our Dhow Cruise Dubai Creek. Aboard a traditional Arabian dhow, this one-of-a-kind experience takes you on a romantic cruise down the historic Dubai Creek as you enjoy a sumptuous gourmet dinner banquet. Perfect for couples, families, and friends, a dhow cruise is the best way to relax while feeling nostalgic in Old Dubai.

Our brightly lit and colorfully decorated wooden Arabian dhow floats majestically on the Dubai Creek beckoning you onboard. Feel at home while we welcome you with traditional Arabic coffee and sweet dates as well as refreshing drinks. You can choose to enjoy the cruise al fresco on our open air upper deck or settle down in our air-conditioned lower deck. Dinner starts as your dhow leaves the comforts of its berth and sets sail into along the tranquil waters of Dubai Creek. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner buffet of International dishes while our resident illusionist entertains you with a fun and fascinating Magic Show onboard.

All around you, you can marvel at the admirable blend of old and new architectures in Dubai. On the Bur Dubai side, the historic Al Fahidi district houses an age old neighborhood that paints a nostalgic picture of old life in Dubai with its traditional wind towers, vintage buildings, and bustling souks. On the Deira side, glass buildings stand as testament to the unstoppable progress of Dubai. Along the creek, abras or water taxis whizz pass your dhow as they ferry passengers across just like in the old days. As your slow and easy dhow cruise dinner winds down, you feel ultimately relaxed and satisfied. It is one of the best ways to end an evening in Dubai.

A great way to see the combination of traditional Dubai and the tall buildings. We enjoyed a two-hour dhow cruise dinner. We get to see the abras or the traditional water taxis that go sailing past our dhow. Also we got some excellent photo opportunities on the traditional boat. On board, they also had a magician. He was pretty good and did some clever tricks.

I enjoyed a Dhow Dinner Cruise with my husband during our stay in Dubai. Our pickup was at 7:30pm from the hotel and we were taken to Dubai Creek which is a beautiful attraction at night with all the brightly lit dhows lining the pier. Dinner and entertainment onboard the dhow was fantastic. It was a unique way to enjoy an evening in Dubai.
