Beautiful boat, clean, polite staff but there was no commentary when the boat went round the island. The stops were too short (due to no doubt the off peak season and low numbers on board). Very disappointing considering the price paid for 3 tickets.

They call it the Jalboot ferry but it’s a nice boat trip all around Abu Dhabi and it’s islands. There’s 3 or 4 hour versions. It’s really worth doing as it gives you an interesting perspective of the city and how everything is laid out....More
