’s economy. Mainly used for pearl farming and fishing during the pre-oil period, dhows are now converted into elegant vintage-style floating restaurants with upper (open-air) and lower (air-conditioned) decks. What’s more intriguing is that even in this technologically-advanced era they are built using traditional methods that have been passed down from generations to generations.
A cruise aboard a dhow is undeniably the most ideal way to experience the very essence and soul of Dubai. It allows you to relax after an adventurous day out and also discover Dubai’s exceptional sights and sounds that will surely blow away your mind. With two distinctly amazing cruising locations such as Dubai Creek and Dubai Marina, we at Rayna Tours strive to deliver finest cruising experiences that Dubai has to offer. After all, our cruising packages are a wonderful mix of great food, unmatched ambience, and exceptional views.
Considered the lifeblood of Dubai, Dubai Creek has the city’s two main commercial hubs on its either side: Deira and Bur Dubai. And when you choose to Dubai dhow cruise on the Creek, it leads you directly into the heart of Old Dubai, giving you a glimpse of a captivating mix of modern and historical treasures, such as ancient sand-colored structures, heritage sites, and traditional souks, dotting the region.
Taking a Dhow Cruise along the waters of Dubai Marina, on the other hand, is second to none to experience the contemporary richness of Dubai, illuminated by night. Beginning at the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, this cruise brings you the most magnificent views of the New Dubai, including the exceptionally classy Jumeirah Beach Residences, the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, Palm Island, and Atlantis, The Palm.
All of the vessels in our fleet, such as Al Khaleej, Al Jawhara, Little Mermaid, Aisha Floating Restaurant, and Aryan Dhow, are backed by excellent crew services. They come with a capacity to seat 30 to 200 passengers at a time. Cruises take place on daily basis in the evening and usually last for two hours. From picking you up from the designated spot to catering to your needs until we drop you back to your location, we’ll take care of everything as part of your dhow cruise.
As soon as the dhow sets sail, mesmerizing sights of Dubai begin to unfold before you. Encompassing a vast array of starters, main course delicacies, and lip-smacking desserts, the classic style dining – prepared and served by exceptionally trained culinary specialists - will be one of the impressive aspects of your cruise. Traditional performances like entrancing Tanura show will mark the end of this incredible cruise.
Apart from regular sightseeing cruises, we organize end-of-year celebrations in the form of New Year Dinner Cruises. Moreover, our specially-designed Valentine’s Day cruise is a favorite of love birds and people who are romantic at heart. Best of all, our dhows also make a great venue to host both special occasions and corporate events. Simply let us know your group size as well as party requirements, and we’ll customize an impeccable event inclusive of dining, entertainment and all other fun elements required to make it extraordinary and unforgettable.
