Full description
Experience Dubai from a different perspective on a cruise along the Dubai Water Canal. Pass through the commercial districts of Dubai Creek, where the sophistication of the 21st-century complements the simplicity of a bygone age. Climb aboard a glass-encased dhow that keeps traditions in a contemporary design.

Awaken your senses as you gently cruise down the artificial canal, unveiled in October 2013 to connect the Business Bay area to the Persian Gulf through Safa Park and Jumeirah. Marvel at iconic attractions of the Dubai skyline, such as the Business Bay Bridge, Dubai Festival City Mall, Burj Khalifa, Dubai Water Canal Bridge, JW Marquis Hotel and Westin Hotel.

Get a welcome kahwah (Arabic coffee) on arrival followed by an assortment of chilled refreshments and dates. You will then be escorted to your table where you will be served welcome drinks and start to feel the gentle sway of the waves and romance of the boat as you set sail. Experience the city's bustling atmosphere as you pass through the Business Bay area while soothing Arabic music serenades you along the way.

Indulge yourself with a sumptuous feast of Arabic appetizers, grilled meat, fresh salads and delicious sweets from Arabia, along with hot beverages. Be mesmerized by the tanoura dance entertainment as an artist spins in his well-lit costume to enliven your evening.
