Alexandra Dhow Cruise in Dubai Marina

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    A “Dhow” is a traditional wooden vessel that is common in the Middle East and has been used historically for a variety of purposes, primarily for trading. Dhows are made in a variety of sizes and in the UAE have been most used for trade between UAE and Iran aswell as for pearl diving. Arabian Dhow Cruise with dinner on board is considered to be the most romantic trip, especially our new trip along the Dubai Marina – the most fascinating landscape in Dubai. “Alexandra” is a 120 Foot Traditional Arabic ‘Dhow’ that has been refurbished into a quality floating restaurant. Dinner includes international buffet and unlimited soft drinks. As part of the 2 hour cruise we will provide a 15-20 minute live show by our very own in-house “Tanura” Dancer Walid, a traditional dance originated in Turkey, which is centered around a man spinning nonstop, creating various patterns with the flowing and glowing color robes.

    Thank you Gary! Yes unfortunately the summer time is a rough time in Dubai weather wise - in winter everyone wants the upper deck :) Would be glad to have you onboard again.

    Family had so much fun. Food was good. Performance was also on point. Music wasn't as good as I had on the last boat cruise though. All together, was quite memorable. Cheers

    Thank you for the feedback! Will look into the music part, I assume you are referring to the singer.
