We went with the cruise before. They used to do a full circel trough the marina and the sea. But not anymore... Now you ony sail out to the sea a bit, then go back to the harbour, and then you do only half of the marina.

So no round trip anymore, very disappointing!

Took a 6 o clock boat which ended up being more like 6:20 so missed seeing he sunset. The 5 is better at this time of year

Great value trip (made better as we had a 2 for 1 entertainer voucher)

Comfy bean bags (even for the older more overweight amongst us!)

Good views from all seats

We chose a 5pm Sunset cruise on New Year's Eve. 4 of us went. It is very good value at 60 AED each with a soft drink included in price. The seats are excellent, firm stuffed bean bags more tha adequate for comfort and safety. You have a hour cruise from Dubai Marina and go out to the Gulf so it gets a bit windy and spray comes on board. By 6pm the sun has set and the dhow is illuminated with lanterns and fairy lights. Touristy, yes but do it and enjoy. Hourly 11 a m to 11pm.

A wonderful and relaxing one hour cruise on a traditional dhow through the entire Marina, best in the evening to see all the spectacular buildings at their finest. It's a bargain price for Dubai, only 60 Dirham per person and it includes a soft drink. The dhow has comfy bean bags to sit on so you can turn them for different vantage points, or walk around to another viewing area.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, offering blankets if its a little chilly out on the water.
The dhow travels at a sedate pace, very smooth throughout the trip. Good location, pick up and drop off at the Marina Walk. No need to book, it departs from the dock every hour in the evening, but good to check beforehand.

We always take this boat in Dubai Marina in the winter. It is very relaxing and young kids love it.
If you live in Dubai and you're bored and don't know where to go or what to do; try Captin Jack ride.
