What to do

Dhow Cruise Dinner
Dubai Creek

Dhow cruises have always been an integral part of Dubai’s heritage. However, these wooden boats have evolved with time from being trade carriers to become entertainment centres for residents and tourists. It is an enchanting way to drift along the bustling waterways of Dubai against the backdrop of Dubai heritage. Soak up the views of old Dubai as the boats pass the souks and the Heritage & Diving Village. A visit to Dubai is incomplete without taking a dhow cruise as night comes alive. Dubai Creek is lined with an array of dhow boats decorated in traditional style and lit up with gleaming lights- definitely an experience to cherish for a lifetime.

What makes the experience even more spectacular is to watch a beautiful sunset from the dhow cruise’s deck and then resting your eyes on the gripping sight of the elegant moon in the sky.

Imagine yourself in the middle of open waters in a wooden boat with a beautiful view of the moon in the sky, does it set a mood for a perfect romantic dinner or a much-needed family bonding session? Dhow cruises provide guests with a delectable buffet dinner with Arabic and international cuisines along with refreshing beverages to please the taste buds. Dhow cruises are also referred to as floating restaurants for obvious reasons. You may call it anything, but it is an extraordinary experience which you will not find anywhere else.

Two hours on a dhow cruise are filled with unlimited entertainment as these cruises play host to an array of family entertainment activities. The activities may vary from company to company but family fun is guaranteed. The entertainment includes a mix of tanoura dance, belly dancing, magic show, live singing and much more. It is the best way to spend a lively night in Dubai eating delectable food and sharing a good laugh while enjoying Dubai’s glittering skyline from your dhow cruise boat. 

Dubai dinner cruise is also a very popular place to celebrate special occasions such birthdays and anniversaries.

This is the best way to make your Dubai trip memorable and worthwhile.
