Dubai Water Canal Cruise

Amazing evening on the Arabian dhow

Experience dinner aboard a traditional wooden Zabeel dhow is a great way to see Dubai by night. Dubai Water Canal is the man-made canal, which opened in 2016, meanders through the center of the city, transforming the face of Downtown Dubai and turning it into a waterfront destination.

Featuring a captivating waterfront of more than six kilometers length, the canal stretches from Business Bay through Safa Park and Jumeirah to the Arabian Gulf, culminating at the Jumeirah Beach Park. On this 2.5 hour cruise, you’ll take in the glamorous attractions along Business Bay and Sheikh Zayed Road, drift under the resplendently-lit bridges, and see locals as well as tourists walking along the banks of the canal.


During the Dhow cruise in Dubai Water Canal you will eat delicious dishes and float through the heart of Dubai, passing by Ras Al Khor Sanctuary, Sheikh Zayed Road Waterfall Bridge, Burj Khalifa, W Hotel, St Regis, and JW Marriott Marquis, among other iconic and impressive sights. Also you will see amazing Tanoura dance, which is surprisingly performed only by men.
