Here we have listed top 5 attractions that you must not miss out on as you cruise your way through Dubai.
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.
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.
For modern skyline views, you can’t find a better place to cruise underneath huge city lights than Dubai Marina. Dubai Marina is known for sleek speed boats and mega-yachts that are all here to give you a ravishing experience time and again. Most of the marine companies here provide fully-staffed vessels that are complete with the captain, chef and hostess, and can even be customized as per the request of the clients. You can choose from so many different rental companies or arrange a yacht through some digital service around. Moreover, Dubai Marina is Dubai’s one of the most vibrant waterfront residential community.
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!
