Dubai Creek Dhow Cruise + Evening Desert Safari in Dubai

Combine the best of two of Dubai’s biggest attractions in one trip – An evening desert safari and the famous Dhow Cruise by the creek you should just not miss.

A dhow is a traditional Arabic sailing boat with triangular sails and a unique hull design, used for fishing and pearl trading in the olden days. Now, you can enjoy a cruise aboard a modernized dhow on the Dubai Creek, which is a significant area of the city. Not only that, the view of some of the oldest iconic buildings in Dubai from the Creek, which has its own unique charm that you can’t find elsewhere. The cruise comes with dinner and Tanoura dance performances, so you’ll have a sailing, dining and entertaining evening all in one. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Facilities like washrooms, and safety measures like railings and life jackets, will be available aboard the show.  


If you want to experience the life in Dubai or UAE before it became the city it is today, a desert safari trip is a must. Our desert safari trip includes spending a few hours time in a Bedouin-style tent, right in the middle of the desert. Typically, the evening desert safari starts with dune bashing, followed by other activities at the desert camp, like henna painting, photoshoot in a traditional Emirati dress, belly dance, Tanoura dance, camel rides, sand skiing, quad biking, BBQ dinner, hookah, and more.

“The Dhow Cruise is one of Dubai's best attractions and your trip won’t be complete without it. We used one of the smaller boats called the Sultan. It turned out to be a small boat with a BIG heart and it comes highly recommended. The food was on point! And so was the entertainment. We had a magic show, a lighted rotating dancer and as a grand finale, the Sultan himself (a man dressed as a character Sultan) wowed us with a very energetic dance number.”

“Dubai without exploring dhow cruise is a big miss. One must go for this 2-3 hrs cruise ride. It's awesome to stroll around the creek enjoying the beautiful night view of Dubai with yummy dinner. Go for it!”

“It can be very pleasant when the weather is not too hot, on a morning cruise. Coffee, tea, cold drinks & sandwiches were available. Loo also available. Great views can be seen from the top deck on a clear day. It's a good way to see some of Dubai Creek.”

“The Dhow cruise with dinner should be done on Dubai Creek since it covers one of the best parts of the city.The view of the city is amazing and the food was good if not excellent.”
