Owner description: In the historic district, the Abra Dock in Bur Dubai, is an affordable 10-minute traditonal wooden boat ride -- really a taxi. Take the abra from the Bastakiya side, look around the textile souk and the art galleries, and end in the gold souk. Used by 15-20 million passengers each year, the Abra Dock in Bur Dubai is a memorable cruise in the water.

Truly this is amazing deal to enjoy open boat exp...weather is fantastic...take the ferry ! This is a commuting channel for public hence to have exclusive boat for yourself; take a speed boat from creek or check at RTA counter and fix for less thro' agent to enjoy 1 hr ride with your family. Do remember to carry refreshments to enjoy ride!
