Booking this through a local agent (Forever Tourism) was the first mistake. We were promised a two-hour cruise with an international buffet dinner, gentle background music and the availability of wine / other alcohol at extra cost. If only! The Dhow cruise didn't start until...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next

They charge you for the ride which includes food and drinks. You may not take dinner and just enjoy the ride with drinks which are available on chargeable basis on board.

It appeared to be an adult attraction and I would not consider it to be suitable for children.

please do not have very high expectations from the food here at dhow cruise or at the desert safari. the options are few, the taste is very okay okay kind and you might end up eating Daal -Chawal only.
