Having lived in the UAE for over 5 years, one of our friends recommended this trip. It's a great way to see Dubai. We took the ferry from the Marina to the creek, then took the Metro back

We have tried Dubai ferry that starts from Dubai Marina. They have different routes, however, certain routes are available only in certain timing. i.e. you cannot take The Atlantis route if you are planning to go at 3:00pm since only the route to Burj Al Arab will be working by that time. I believe that they should avail more routes... More

Nice way to get out on the sea and to get some views from the seaside of the marina, Burj Arab, palm and creek. Nice ferry, a few snacks and coffee for sale onboard. Well worth the relatively low price. Would recommend.

first how to get there : if you go by metro then note this- we made a mistake of getting off at marina metro station and had to walk a lot to reach the marina mall.. so don't do this mistake and rather get-off at Jumeirah Lakes Towers station and walk to the Marina Mall. i think RTA should change...

Skyline is holy god from the water. You'll truly appreciate the mammoth heights of some of the towers on this. Great photo ops.

I took the Dubai ferry as an alternative to some of the other boat tours that were more expensive but seemed to travel a similar route. The ferry experience was excellent. I bought my ticket at the marina about 30 minutes beforehand for the 11am boat. Seating was comfortable, but I spent most of the time on the outdoor deck.... More

We had difficulty in finding the ferry as we got off the Metro at the Marina Bay station which initially seemed the obvious decision. However it is better to go to the Jumeirah Lakes Towers station and walk to the Marina Mall, walk through the Marina Mall, reaching the ticket office by following the signs for the Peir 7 hotel....

Though, they have limited trips with routes changing with every trip, it is still worth to have a trip. I got my ticket for 5 PM trip which is till Atlantis only. I still witnessed beautiful views of Dubai Coast, Atlantis, Sunset and Wide Sea. If you are in a group of 10, better to book a Private Cruise.

Very un-organised, as with most attractions in Dubai. As there are no ticket nos., reach min 2 hrs early to get tickets for the next trip. Beautiful views in both morning & evening ride. As they keep on changing their routes & timings, try 7 call them to confirm on your visit date. Even their website is not updated. Inspite... More
