Going on a traditional dhow cruise is the perfect option for tourists who seek a change of scenery from visiting indoor attractions and navigating around the city on foot. The Dhow cruise offers a holistic experience for guests who can witness the beauty of ‘new’ modern Dubai from a more relaxed and unique perspective.
Arriving at the location of the West Bay, Dubai Marina Yacht Club, expect an evening of top class royalty treatment as you will be personally escorted on board and greeted by the friendly crew of the Dhow. Complimentary fresh towels and refreshments such as tea, coffee and dates will also be offered to guests upon their expected arrival.
Stepping inside the wooden Arabic ship, you will come across a quaint refurbished space in the lower deck that is completely designed into a high-quality charming restaurant. This is to offer guests a cosier and memorable experience of sightseeing inside this 120-foot traditional boat vessel. Choose your own seating anywhere on the deck as you are sure to get stunning views of the canal city and the lagoon from every corner of the Dhow.
As you comfortably dine in this exquisite surrounding, you will be presented with a 20-30-minute live show, which offers the audience favourite, the ‘Tanura’ folk dance programme. Typically showcased offshore, the cruise provides guests with this exclusive entertainment programme as the talented dancer captivates you with his phenomenal colourful choreography and intricate attire.
The diverse intercontinental menu provides an array of options for guests; from different kinds of salads, sides, desserts, main courses (which consist of beef, chicken and seafood dishes), along with plenty of options for our Vegetarian guests too. The high quality buffet will not disappoint as you enjoy a splendid evening dining under the twinkling stars across the enchanting canal of the Dubai Marina; sailing through the scenic lagoon of The Palm.
