Luxurious cruise by the Dubai Water Canal

This dinner cruise is the perfect way to see the attractions peppered around Dubai Canal at night! You'll set sail on a glass-enclosed dhow boat, a traditional wooden boat turned into a luxurious floating restaurant. First up, you’re greeted with a warm Arabic coffee and some welcome drinks — a nice little start, right?

As you cruise down, there's plenty to keep your eyes busy: the IMAGINE water show with fountains dancing to music at the Festival City Mall, the glitzy, avant-garde Dubai Design District, the center of Dubai's current downtown, Burj Khalifa (of course!), and the Business Bay high-rises. Oh, and the Waterfall Bridge looks amazing all lit up at night!

The best part is definitely the food! A lavish international buffet awaits you, featuring everything from Arabic appetizers to grilled meats, salads, and desserts. To set the mood, a saxophonist will be playing live. After cruising for 2 hours, you'll return to the starting point.
