As a subsidiary of Rayna Tours and Travels – the UAE’s number one destination management company, our commitment at BookDhowCruiseDubai.com is to deliver comfortable, cost-effective dhow cruise of the highest standards on Dubai Creek and Dubai Marina.
A wooden sailing craft of Arabian derivation, the dhow began its life as a source to enhance the livelihood of Arabs when occupations like pearl farming and fishing were at its peak during the pre-oil era. The trade significance of dhows diminished with the collapse of pearl industry in the late 19th century, but the Emiratis still nurture the ancient techniques of dhow building using basic tools as well as materials, as a respect towards their rich tradition and heritage. These vessels have been now elegantly restored as floating restaurants to deliver a gracious and tranquil way of getting up close and personal with the beautiful vistas of Old and New Dubai.
BookDhowCruiseDubai.com altogether operates four dhows. Featuring a classic décor with wood paneling and soft flooring, our dhows can accommodate from 25 to 150 people. Each of these vessels holds its own unique appeal and flavor.
Meandering past the mix of traditional and modern attractions of Dubai Creek, the two-tiered Al Khaleej and Al Jawhara – for example – offer the kind of retreat if you’re looking for a peaceful escape after an action-packed adventure or day trip. For those who wish to ply the waters of Dubai Creek in a more intimate ambience, Aryan Dhow with a capacity to host not less than 30 people is second to none. Sailing through the glorious sights of Dubai Marina, Aisha Floating Restaurant – on the other hand – allows you to immerse in the unmatched luminosities of modern Dubai.
The whole fleet offers finest gastronomic delights that include both regional and international cuisines, along with welcome drinks and complimentary refreshments. With live entertainment shows conducted onboard, guests can opt to do as little or as much as they wish to, as dhows float along the serene waters of Dubai, offering captivating sights of regal architectures and age-old sand colored structures. And don’t miss the ethereal charm of full-of-life souks and bustling abra ferries.
Apart from our regular evening dinner cruise that lasts for two hours, guests may also charter one of our dhows to throw an event of any scale or nature, from birthdays, get-togethers, and receptions to corporate functions. Simply call our event planners who will craft a dhow cruise event down to the exceptional detail around your individual preferences and wallet.
