We took the ferry from the Creek near Bur Dubai to the Dubai Marina. We got great views of the Creek, harbour area, Dubai skyscraper skyline, Burj al Arab, Jumeirah Palm and the marina. Limited view of the World as there is nothing much to see of this yet. The sail took about 90 minutes and we spent much of... More

Took the RTA Dubai Ferry from Dubai Marina to the Old Creek, a great choice for any visitor. Luckily, the gold tickets had sold out because the silver tickets at 50dhs was pefect & great value on this 90 minute trip along the coastline. The ferry is very clean, & comfortable with good facilities offering hot drinks as well as... More

The cultural programme, particularly the Tanura dance, on the Ferry was excellent, but food was definitely not up to the mark.

We took this ferry from the Dubai Marina to Al Gubaiba station in Dubai creek at 11:00am. It had good views of the Dubai skyline and Burj Al Arab. The ride from Marina to Burj-Al-Arab was good. After that, it was pretty far from the coast and there wasn't much to do. The city had a haze and so even... More

We took the last ferry which was a one way trip from the creek to the dubai marina. We bought a gold ticket which is just 3 euro more and it's absolutely worth it. During the 80 minutes trip we were able to go outside at the end and sometimes at the front as we were just a few people... More

Before you go, check the departure times and routes. The ferrys are not very frequent (they run every few hours during off-peak times) and there are a number of different routes (Dubai Marina - Atlantis the Palm round-trip, the creek to Burj Al Arab round-trip, and routes between the two stations). There are two boarding stations (where you can also... More

My third visit to Dubai. I saw Ferry service attraction from Dubai Marina to Ghubaiba. Since the Metro will take me to Ghubaida is nearer, I decided to take the Ferry from there. The trip only cost 50 Dh. But the regular schedule from Ghubaiba to Dubai marina was only possible by 6pm, and the 2:30pm schedule is to Al... More

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.
