Cruising Spots in Dubai

Cruising Spots in Dubai
Cruising through the sparkling waters of Dubai is a must-do for tourists and residents in this bustling city. Not only is it a relaxing past time or a means for celebration, cruising also provides the opportunity to connect with the nation’s seafaring roots. Here are excellent cruising spots for you to check out. The Dubai Marina, an artificial canal city, is a charming setting for dhow cruises and is the perfect start off point for yacht charters. Exuding the cosmopolitan and free-spirited atmosphere of seaside living, tourists are treated to a stunning view of the marina skyline along the 3.5-kilometer-long canal. For a two-hour cruise, you are treated to dinner and entertainment onboard while you take in the invigorating vibe of this magnificent mini-city. By cruising past the Dubai coast and out to the Persian Gulf where the impressive man-made islands spread out, yacht charters offer breathtaking views of the Dubai skyline and some fine-looking beaches. Sailing around the Palm Jumeirah and near the The World Islands, guests are treated to splendid views of the iconic Burj Al Arab and the themed resort-hotel Atlantis, The Palm. You can also do some sport fishing if you take this spot. Lastly, to see the heart of Dubai is to take a trip down the historic Dubai Creek. A cruise onboard a traditional Arabian dhow presents guests a view of night time Deira and Bur Dubai while feasting on authentic Emirati and international cuisine onboard. Reflective of “Old Dubai,” the 14-kilometer creek area has transformed from being a tiny pearling and fishing port in the past into a global trading hub. Here you can see the lively souks and the busy abras all delighting tourists and residents alike. The Dubai Creek reflects the modest beginnings of Dubai, and is hoping to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site soon.
