This AED 60 boat ride is an hour well spent. It leaves every full hour and you get to see the Dubai Marina and part of the Palm Islands. Its a wooden Dhow boat with beanie bags to sit on. Most of the times you also get to see the planes of Skydive Dubai lift of and land and watch... More

If you have been to Chicago then you must tried Chicago Architecture tour. And I thought this Dubai Marina and a bit of the open see tour in a wooden boat is similar to that but the reality is not even close. There is no guide or audio guide that add some humor or few information or what not to... More

Always go with friends visiting us in Dubai, as it is a super trip for a very good price. Now trip has been made shorter though, for some reason? And please, NO music, lets listen to the sound of the water and the Marina in stead of a radio with advertisements!

For 60 AED really a very good experience! Drinks as much as you want, blankets (its really getting cold at the sea) and an amazing view!

Set off to then be brought back in to allow around 30/40 people to get on. Eventually ( 20 mins late) got going. Extremely over crowded even to the point of it being tipped to one side. We didn't even get the full amount of time we came back early. Did complain at the time but the woman at the... More

For 60 AED this is fantastic value. We had a really good cruise for an hour which took us out into the Ocean and then around the Marina. Large bean bags and blankets make the trip really comfortable. The starting area was a bit difficult to find - its in the marina opposite the twisty skyscraper. The best trip we... More

We went with the cruise before. They used to do a full circel trough the marina and the sea. But not anymore... Now you ony sail out to the sea a bit, then go back to the harbour, and then you do only half of the marina. So no round trip anymore, very disappointing!

Took a 6 o clock boat which ended up being more like 6:20 so missed seeing he sunset. The 5 is better at this time of year Great value trip (made better as we had a 2 for 1 entertainer voucher) Comfy bean bags (even for the older more overweight amongst us!) Good views from all seats

We chose a 5pm Sunset cruise on New Year's Eve. 4 of us went. It is very good value at 60 AED each with a soft drink included in price. The seats are excellent, firm stuffed bean bags more tha adequate for comfort and safety. You have a hour cruise from Dubai Marina and go out to the Gulf so... More

A wonderful and relaxing one hour cruise on a traditional dhow through the entire Marina, best in the evening to see all the spectacular buildings at their finest. It's a bargain price for Dubai, only 60 Dirham per person and it includes a soft drink. The dhow has comfy bean bags to sit on so you can turn them for... More
