Make your own way to Abu Dhabi’s marina area and step aboard the traditional, double-decker dhow (traditional wooden Arabian boat) for your sightseeing cruise. Be welcomed by the friendly crew and take a seat on the comfortable, open-sided upper deck.
Then, enjoy the views your dhow slips away from dock and sets sail onto the calm marina waters. As you cruise, soak in the pleasant sea breezes and take in the views of the Marina Mall shopping complex and Marina Eye ferris wheel.
Enjoy the gentle Arabic music playing in the background, and stay refreshed with the provided sodas and bottled water. Gaze at the vast Emirates Palace hotel and admire the widescreen views of the Corniche beach and glass towers and skyscrapers rising up from behind the sands. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the sights.
Then, sail by the beaches, dunes and palm groves of Lulu Island, the artificial island off the Corniche, and after about an hour, dock back at the marina pier. Your tour ends when you disembark the dhow.
