Cruise along Dubai Creek by 'dhow,' a Middle Eastern wooden boat, and see the sights of nighttime Deira while savoring a buffet feast! One of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, Deira represents the traditional heart of Dubai, and the 2-hour cruise takes in sights of many of its lively souqs and bustling side streets. Gaze out at the sights, and enjoy soft drinks plus Emirati and international cuisine from the onboard buffet, with charcoal-grilled meat and Arabic sweets alongside other countless other treats.


  • See the sights illuminated at night
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • A la carte dinner included

After a pickup from your central Dubai hotel, travel by minibus to Deira in the heart of ‘old Dubai.’ Worlds apart from Dubai’s sophisticated city center, Deira is known for its hustle and bustle with colorful, old-school souqs and dusty streets that resonate with history and character.

Dubai Creek snakes through the neighborhood, and many say a trip along the stretch of water is the best way to experience Deira. Head to the waterside where your dhow awaits, and hop on board to enjoy your 2-hour cruise. Still in use today for shipping goods around the Indian Ocean, the traditional dhows are a common sight on the waters of Dubai Creek.

Make your way to the lavish onboard buffet, feast your eyes on the food, and then select whatever delicacies you wish to fill your plate. Soft drinks plus an enticing mix of traditional Emirati and international food is on offer; see the sample menu below. Sit down to eat while watching the sights of Deira at night, and admire the glittering lights of Dubai’s skyscrapers in the distance.

Having cruised back and forth along the creek, return to the water’s edge and finally finish your evening experience with a drop-off at your hotel.
