Dubai Dhow Cruise

Book the top-rated dhow cruise Dubai packages on isango! to get the best prices! As a gondola ride is to Venice, so too is a dhow cruise to Dubai. A traditional lateen-rigged ship, dhows have been used to traverse the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean for centuries, with Arab traders transporting goods, fishing, and discovering new shores in their vessels. Today, dhow ships remain an essential part of tourism, with cruises providing uninterrupted views of the city's modern skyline and the magnificent ocean beyond, as well as offering a rare glimpse into the maritime history of the region. From evening dining experiences to express rides, dhow cruises are a must-do for all tourists.

Our tips for Dhow Cruise

  • Bring your sea legs. Dubai is blessed with great weather, although at times the ocean can be a little rough. For those prone to seasickness, be sure to be prepared with motion sickness medicine before heading off on your dhow cruise Dubai.
  • For the romantics… Book evening dhow cruises to enjoy magical views of the city skyline. Wining and dining with this backdrop is guaranteed to impress your special someone.
  • Listen up. Pre-recorded commentary in English and a host of other languages is available on most dhow cruises. Be sure to listen up to uncover the remarkable history of these ancient sailing ships.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Dhow cruises are idyllic year round, but are best experienced in the months of November through to March when the city’s remains less humid and the heat is more bearable.
Getting there
Dhow cruises begin from a host of different ports dotted throughout the harbour. Dubai is not much of a walking city, but what it lacks in pedestrian-friendly amenities is more than made up for in the array of efficient, safe and cost-effective taxi services. We recommend organising a taxi to get to your dhow cruise Dubai starting point.
Money saving tips
Unlike many of Dubai’s top attractions, dhow cruises are a relatively inexpensive activity. Book your cruise well in advance to save more of your hard-earned dough.

  • Unfortunately, little is known about the exact origins of the dhow. Scholars believe the first constructions of the dhow began in China between the years of 600 BC to 600 CE.
  • Today, dhow ships are still used for commercial purposes, with several ships making the journey between the Arabian Gulf and East Africa each year. Laden with cargo of mostly dates and fish, the dhows still rely completely on their sails to propel them to their destination.
