If you wish to discover Dubai’s mix of quaint timeless sights, stunning modern attractions, and scenic charm in the most exotic way, consider a relaxed cruise by Dubai Ferry! Being operated by the RTA (Road and Transport Authority) Dubai, it’s not only safe and immaculate but also an inexpensive alternative over most other Dubai sightseeing options.
Subject to your chosen route, you’ll board the vessel from Al Ghubaiba or Dubai Marina Water Transport Station. For an astonishing perspective of Dubai’s modern highlights, the most recommended route is Round Trip Dubai Marina. It will journey you across the stunning Palm Jumeirah Islands, allowing you to admire pristine beaches, super classy yachts, glamorous city skyline and architectural gems (such as Burj Al Arab and Atlantis Palm Hotel) along the way.
Alternatively, the route from Al Ghubaiba to Dubai Marina and vice versa is all inclusive, as it passes you through the timeless structures, souks etc along Ras Area or Old Dubai, before passing through the unrivaled sights across Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah. You can further consider an optional ticket upgrade which lets you combine your Dubai ferry ride experience with a smooth entry to At the Top observatory within the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa.
The best thing about Dubai Ferry is that it allows you to enjoy a 60 to 90 minutes cruise, and more importantly, as per your budget and liking. Simply make a choice between Silver Ticket and Gold Ticket which offers high-end seating right in the vessel’s front area! Whichever ticket you choose, you can be assured of a pleasant ride throughout, with spacious and comfortable seating arrangements for 100 passengers onboard. Besides a snack bar, it also includes dedicated spots to park wheelchairs.
