See the iconic skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi with this cruise in a traditional dhow boat. This fantastic trip also includes a delicious gourmet dinner.
Dhow Dinner Cruise in Abu Dhabi
We will pick you up at your hotel at 6:45 pm and head to the Abu Dhabi Marina. At the pier you will be welcomed with a red carpet and a drink - pure luxury and glamour in the style of the United Arab Emirates!
After this reception, you will set sail on a real dhow, a traditional wooden ship from Arab countries equipped with all possible comforts. You will enjoy the crossing from its wide panoramic decks, which offer excellent views of the skyline of Abu Dhabi.
As the sun goes down over the Persian Gulf, you will see the Abu Dhabi skyline around Corniche Beach cast in wonderful purple and orange tones. However, this romantic scene is not the only attraction of the cruise.
When night is upon us, you will witness the neon illumination of the city's magnificent skyscrapers. Remember to bring your camera to capture a permanent memory of this moment! Moreover, while you enjoy the dhow ride, you will be delighted with a gourmet dinner that will delight the most exquisite palates.
Finally, we will conclude the trip by returning to the original port of departure. From there we will take you to your hotel, where arrival is scheduled from 11 pm.
