Full description

Climb aboard a romantic dhow (a traditional Arabic sailing vessel) and cruise Dubai Marina on this delicious 2-hour dinner tour. Get up-close views of the unofficial 8th wonder of the world, The Palm Island complex (view from lagoons area), and enjoy a romantic ambiance from the moment you step onboard the 2-tiered boat. As you sail out of Dubai Marina Yacht Club and cruise up Dubai Channel, get glimpses of the stylish Jumeirah Beach Residences and the mega-yachts of Dubai Marina. Continue to The Blu water island and the Dubai Eye (Ain Dubai). All the while you’ll be tucking into an international and Asian buffet dinner, with unlimited soft drinks, mineral water, tea, and coffee. Soft Arabic, English, and Hindi music will sway with the gentle lapping of the waves, and the lithe movement of Tanura dancers will be an added exotic distraction.

    Transfer was strange. It took us an hour to get there and back because the driver got lost on the way there and there was a lot of traffic on the way back. We were supposed to be picked up between 6-7pm but weren't picked up until 7:10pm. Food was good/delicious, everything was nicely set. The music at the live show, a dance, was WAY too LOUD. That was really deafening.

    Recommended ! Hotel pickup was great. The driver was in contact with us via WhatsApp, so we always knew when and where he was going to arrive. The trip on the dhow was just great. We had plenty to eat and had a long photo stop at the Ferris wheel. The show was pretty entertaining. All in all a successful evening.

    The processing from the booking is really smooth. You will be contacted via Whatsapp and the pick-up will be fixed. The driver arrives on time and brings you comfortably to the starting point and is ready immediately after the end of the tour. You are greeted with Arabic coffee, a date and you are given water directly on the ship. Soft drinks are included, alcoholic ones cost extra. The lower deck is air-conditioned, the upper one not. One should keep this in mind, especially in the summer months.
