I've been searching for a Marina Dhow Cruise for my young guest but most dinner cruise are expensive and totally not worth paying 300 Dirhams. I'm glad Iv come across Captain Jack's, as it's only an hour cruise (which is more than enough), in a slow steady pace. It's very relaxing and good for tourists. I would not mind paying... More

Just got back from Dubai and after experiencing the dinner cruises, found this a more refreshing cruise, where we felt more in touch with nature as in the beautiful sea, sun rays, beach and the blue skies. Also loved the view of the Dubai Marina while lazing on the bean bags and the view is not limited to only some... More

I was visiting Dubai on vacation as a few day excursion on my way to Egypt. The buildings and architecture in Dubai is absolutely beautiful and wanted to see as much as possible and capture beautiful images. We were referred to Captain Jack's by our waiter in our hotel. It was a great recommendation. We got to see the beauty... More

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!

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

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
