Pleasant boat ride, something to tick off your things to do in Dubai. It is part of the Old Dubai which is nice to take in.

Bur Dubai Abra Dock is just beside the Bur Dubai souk. There is a ferry from Baniyas Dock to Bur Dubai Abra Dock. Baniyas Dock is just 2 minutes walk from Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel and Tower pool level exit.

when checking out the souks its a must trip, cheap as chips (in fact loads cheaper than chips lol) worked out to be approximately 0.27 euro, absolute bargain when in Dubai

Dubai boasts of world-class transport infrastructure whether on land, Air or even Water! In the latter, one can opt for the Air-conditioned ferry, the dhows, the Water taxis and Water Buses. Why should one take an old-fashioned boat with no safety features across the Creek?...More

I didn’t know the cost of the ride, Once the boat captain told me it’s only 1 AED . I was surprised. It’s a bit risky. Not much safety Measures. But it’s a must try once u visit the place.

These Boats call Abra in Dubai. It's available behind Temple area in Bur Dubai or from Deira ( Another side of Bur Dubai) but not compatible for Wheel Chair. No problem for infant or toddlers.

Yes, you can take them; as long as you realize that the seats are like sunken benches. You step in and sit down. So you have to make sure you hold them down. The modern taxi is perhaps more convenient; but doesn't compare to... More
