The Basics

Water taxis are often included as part of guided sightseeing tours and serve as a practical way to see the sights of Dubai Creek; however, the waterway can also be enjoyed via a sunset dinner cruise aboard a traditional Arabian wooden sailboat known as a dhow. Many comprehensive Dubai city tours also include combine a dinner cruise with visits to the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al-Arab, the Dubai desert, the Dubai Marina, and the Old City area.

Beautiful Dhow
Despite numbers being very low they delivered a first class buffet, good friendly service and entertainment.

Half-Day Dubai City Tour with Dubai Frame Tickets
Great tour, that covers most of the "must see" stops and gives you a good overview of Dubai (at the Frame quite literally). The guide was friendly and knowledge. Hotel pick-up worked perfectly. All around recommendable operator.

Dubai Trio Tours: Desert Safari with Dinner,Dubai City Tour & Dhow Cruise Dinner
Definitely a must-do while in Dubai! You get a little bit of everything Dubai creek cruise (with dinner), real desert safari (with dinner and 3 shows) and a city tour (that let's you figure out what else you want to do and see). During this month it was very hot (109 degrees F) and the air conditioned vehicles tried their very best. Overall a lavish city with so much to do. Wish I had more time do go on another tour with this company!

Evening Dhow Dinner Cruise in Dubai
Highly recommended. It’s an experience that will always be remembered. From the moment of picked up from the hotel to the venue and back to the hotel. The staff and service is excellent in Dhow cruise and the food is great. Our guide Mohammed is very informative. This is very worthy of your time and expense.

Old and Modern Dubai City tour with Dubai Frame Tickets
Was great half day trip, was picked up at hotel at 8.20 and dropped back at 1pm. First stop was the Atlantis, then to Al Arab and Souk Madinat Jumeirah, drive through the driveway of La Casa Hotel with its 18 golden horses. Then to the Blue Mosque, short boat ride in a Abras to the Golden Souk, then given an hour to wonder the Dubai Frame. Guide was good, very informative, knew where to take all the best pictures and looked after the group whilst walking through the Souks

How to Get There

There are four stations where travelers board water taxis—two on the Deira side and two on the Bur Dubai side. From the creek, it's possible to spot palaces, mosques, and other Dubai landmarks, including the Gold Souk and the Dubai Heritage Village.

When to Get There

If visiting on your own, arrive in the early morning or evening to enjoy some peace and quiet. Alternatively, stop by during the hectic middle of the day to see the Dubai Creek at its bustling best. Expect temperatures of up to 110°F (43°C) in summer.

Dhows and Abras on the Dubai Creek

Dhows are wooden boats with long, thin hulls that are typically used to carry heavy cargo for trading. Lateen-rigged sails on one or more masts help power the boats which typically carry fruit or fresh water. Abras, meanwhile, are the traditional motor-powered water taxis used in Dubai.
