We enjoyed a Dhow Dinner Cruise during our stay in Dubai, we got picked up at 6pm and taking to Dubai Creek, a great way to see the City's sky scrapers and see the heart of the city. It only took around 20 minutes to get to Dubai Creek then we got on aboard a cruise and enjoyed a two hour long sail down the creek.
You got to see the hustle and bustle of the locals and you get to see the water taxi's which go sailing past you. Also you get some excellent photo opportunities and see all the sky scrapers lit up at night. On board they also had a magician, normally i dont like these but he was pretty good and did some clever tricks.
We then enjoyed a buffet dinner, there was soup and bread for starters, curry and rice, lots of meat dishes and vegetables, salad and pitta bread and pasta and sauce to choose from. They also had cakes, sweets and fresh fruits for dessert. Everything is included apart from drinks, they have a bar where you can order beers or wines and soft drinks but they do give you a glass of mineral water free when you first arrive.
Also a man comes round and takes photos of you each costing 35 Dirhams per photo. We got a couple as sovernirs but i dont think there worth the money.
The Dhow Dinner cruise cost us £30 per person and included hotel pick up and drop up.
This is a must try when your in Dubai, specially if your her with your girlfriend, wife or someone you care about, it´s really cozy and romantic to take a Dinner Dhow Cruise.
In the Dinner Cruise you get Welcome Drinks, Continental Buffet, Entertainment and Background Music. AND A WONDERFUL MEMORY
The trip takes two hours and costs 200 Dirhams per person (about 40 Euro per person).
There are alot of Dinner Dhow Cruises to choose from just go down to the Dubai Creek and pick one out. You can also make a reservation on a Dhow Cruise then the company will come to your hotel and pick you up (not sure how much x-tra it costs).
DONT MISS MY VIDEOS OF THE DHOW DINNER CRUISE
Arabian Dhow Cruise ~ Aboard the tradional Arabian Wooden Dhow, you can cruise along the Dubai creek. As you gently sail along the famous Dubai waterway an English commentary (recording) will tell you about the history of the Creek, the old Dubai and the present Dubai with all the skyscrapers you can see as you sail. The trip will last for an hour.
A single trip is included in the Big Bus tour ticket. The schedule are as follows:
If you want a more romantic trip, you can avail seperately a Dinner Cruise. Local tour operators can arrange this activity for you or you can just walk in and approach any Cruise operator near the creek.
ES VERDAD QUE HAY MUCHAS OPCIONES PARA VISITAR EL CREEK O RIA DE DUBAI, PERO SIN DUDAR SI QUEREIS UN VIAJE ROMANTICO Y DE CALIDAD, LA MEJOR FORMA ES QON EL DUBAI-BATEAU.ES UN BARCO TIPO LOS QUE CIRCULAN POR EL SENA DE PARIS,MODERNO, CERRADO CON CRISTAL, EN DONDE PODEIS VER LA RIA DE DUBAI MIENTRAS QUE CENAIS OYENDO MUSICA EN VIVO Y CON AIRE ACONDICIONADO.LA COMIDA ES EXCELENTE Y EL SERVICIO ES TENTO Y MUY AMABLE.ES UNA MARAVILLA.
Voyages within the Creek or into the Gulf can be organised through local tour operators. Various options are available regarding catering arrangements and vessel (including cabin cruisers and dhows).
Also, you can use Abra (see the pic) to cross the creek-- the traditional water taxi which has survived the advent of motor cars and buses.
The short journey across the waterway from the glass-and-steel office blocks of Deira to the old-world souks of Bur Dubai provides a fascinating glimpse of Dubai's trading heritage. It is unforgattable and lots of fun ;-)
