Full description
Take a relaxing 2-hour tour of Dubai Creek under the evening stars and feast on international treats as you cruise! Set sail on board a traditional Arabian dhow, and once on board, enjoy a sumptuous feast of Arabic and international cuisine while gently gliding past the souks, banks, and palaces of Dubai’s glittering waterfront.

A friendly driver will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the creek, where you will board a traditional Arabic dhow, typical waterborne vessels of the Persian Gulf traditionally used by pearl fishers.

As you set off, you will glide past the wonderful illuminated skyline of Dubai at night, and feast on Arabic and international specialties in the comfort of the on-board dining area. The dhow offers an international open-buffet with appetizers, salad, fish, meat, several desserts to choose from. At the end of your romantic evening of soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of Dubai at night, your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Transport to the boat was not good.

A guy was standing at the reception an hour before the agreed time and wanted to pick us up. When we were not ready he would return but arrived 20 minutes late. Did not find the boat, barely responded to the accusations and when we finally arrived a little over an hour late everyone was pissed at us because they had to wait. Then, however, fantastic service, good food, fun entertainment, nice surroundings where the boat hit the front and absolutely perfect home transport with another car.

Worth the money!

I was picked up from my hotel and dropped off. Food choice and taste was amazing (Buffett - plenty of food for many rounds). However started an hour later then the stated time and l didnt get to choose where l wanted to be seated it was pre selected. Overall cant complain decent package for the price l paid. Worth doing.

This was very nice, it was relaxing and I truly enjoyed it. We were picked up from our hotels and brought to the area where we went on the boats. They were very beautifully decorated. The dinner was fantastic, and very tasty. There was enough for us to get seconds which majority of us did because it was so good. Chef Jon did an amazing job. The performer was great and he even got us to participate in the dance. The workers were very professional and attentive. After dinner, we all went to the top of the ship. It was very beautiful and peaceful. At the end of the cruise, we were brought back to our hotels. This dinner cruise is definitely a yes for me. I would highly recommend it.
