We did a boat ride on the creek as pert of our city sight seeing bus ticket. We enjoyed that trip, me my wife and our son. The commentary was great, a lot of history being shared. I would recommend this.

The Dubai Creek was a great adventure that allowed us to see the markets and enjoy a short boat ride along the creek. Loved the atmosphere and special finds.
