The Basics

Water taxis are often included as part of guided sightseeing tours and serve as a practical way to see the sights of Dubai Creek; however, the waterway can also be enjoyed via a sunset dinner cruise aboard a traditional Arabian wooden sailboat known as a dhow. Many comprehensive Dubai city tours also include combine a dinner cruise with visits to the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al-Arab, the Dubai desert, the Dubai Marina, and the Old City area.

Half-Day Dubai City Tour with Dubai Frame Tickets
Amazing tour, Khan was an exceptional host who was not only knowledgeable about all the attractions we went to, but took amazing photos and did his best to not let the sellers at the souks charge us ridiculous prices. Cannot express enough how great of a job Khan did. Amazing guy, would do it again with no doubt.

When to Get There

If visiting on your own, arrive in the early morning or evening to enjoy some peace and quiet. Alternatively, stop by during the hectic middle of the day to see the Dubai Creek at its bustling best. Expect temperatures of up to 110°F (43°C) in summer.

Dhows and Abras on the Dubai Creek

Dhows are wooden boats with long, thin hulls that are typically used to carry heavy cargo for trading. Lateen-rigged sails on one or more masts help power the boats which typically carry fruit or fresh water. Abras, meanwhile, are the traditional motor-powered water taxis used in Dubai.
