Cruises can be taken in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The Dubai Creek is a sea strip that goes into the land similar to a river estuary. The one in Abu Dhabi acts as a natural canal between the city and the Lulu Island. It is recommended to do the cruise in the evening at sunset, and various dhows and yachts offer cruise-dinners. Some hotel groups have their own boats, others will book the excursion for you through a specialised tour agency.
Generally, dinner cruises with a musical atmosphere are proposed on these traditional vessels.© Grapheast/Graph East Computers Royalty Free
