Cruise to Dubai and Explore Its Different Side
From The Waters

See top 5 attractions with Abra cruise in Dubai

Dubai is known for all the different types of attractions that it has to offer to the avid travelers. However, if you want to experience Dubai like never before and take a different perspective to this beautiful Emirate, you really should set sail to explore beautiful coastline of the city and all its adventurous experiences. You might have known Dubai for its glamorous cars, hi-tech stuff and private helicopters, but the city used to rely on Abras in the past for transporting people and stuff to and from the Dubai Creek. Abras are very simple and effective large boats that are pretty much like gondola. They not only represent a reliable transport option but also give you some insights into Emirati ways of living we still use today. So, take Abra cruise and get to an entirely different journey exploring Dubai from a whole new perspective.

Here we have listed top 5 attractions that you must not miss out on as you cruise your way through Dubai.

Madinat Jumeirah

Madinat Jumeirah is a popular resort and souk (outdoor market), which uses Abras for connecting the hotels, restaurants and villas on the sanctuary through man-made winding canals. There are regular stops across the network and you can have a perfect experience cruising through them. A complete ride on Madinat Abras would take almost 30 minutes to take you through Madinat Jumeirah. They leave the docks quite frequently as well which means you won’t have to face any issues whatsoever in finding yourself a cruise.

Dubai Creek

A cruise trip to Dubai Creek would definitely be a great way to make incredible memories. The Abra fleets make a perfect public transport network as they criss-cross the saltwater creek. With a certain token fee, the travelers are privileged to enjoy round-trips between Gold, Spice and Textile Souks where they can explore some precious gold pieces and gemstones, Middle Eastern spices and some exotic fabrics. Finish your ride as the Creek ends at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and enjoy a wonderful drink at its rooftop terrace.

Dubai Water Canal

If you want to have a taste of modern Dubai, a sail across the latest waterway of the Emirate is definitely what you should be trying out. The Dubai Water Canal has really taken things into the modern era giving water transport in Dubai a real makeover. It stretches across 3km from Arabian Gulf going through the Safa Park and enters the gorgeous city centre before it culminates into the Business Bay’s existing waters. At the widest point, it gets 180m across which certainly makes for a good enough width for Abras.

The Canal also adds almost 1.5 km of beautiful beaches to the Dubai’s coastline and makes for a wonderful new waterway for those keen sailors, paddlers and rowers. It also boasts of a beautiful fun-fair style boardwalk, running and cycling paths, 3 RTA metro stations for servicing the promenade, ‘floating’ restaurants, a beautiful yacht club, and some amazing 5-star hotels which all add to the attractions of this cool district.

Arabian Gulf

When in Dubai, you can even enjoy cruising into the open sea as you sail along the emirate’s coast. As you cruise along the beautiful Arabian Gulf, stop by the gorgeous Burj Al Arab and enjoy a delicious on-deck meal as the sail-shaped iconic hotel serves to be your backdrop. You can even visit the beautiful World Islands docking at the Lebanon Island for your pre-booked lunch in an exclusive beach cabana.

For those sporty couples, jet-skis can also be arranged and loaded before leaving the dock. You will have unobstructed space for revving your ride up into the wide open sea. Before the sunset, get looping back to the shoreline and enjoy the vivid sunset in the Arabian Gulf reflecting the mirrored skyscrapers of the city. It really is a sight to witness.

Dubai has a lot on offer for the cruise goers and you will definitely experience the new side of Dubai as you cruise through these beautiful manmade and natural waterways. Book your cruise today and make memories for life!
