Dubai Water Canal connects the Dubai Creek to the Persian Gulf. An ancient waterway, Dubai Creek has been the lifeline of Dubai and its inhabitants. Starting at Business Bay, Dubai Water Canal is a 3km stretch of waterway that flows through Safa Park and Jumeirah. Flanking it on both sides are some of the popular landmarks of Dubai City such as Business Bay Bridge, the Dubai Water Canal Footbridge, Safa Park and multiple luxury hotels. The cruise boats are traditional dhows that have now evolved from the tiny sailed boats of the earlier centuries to the huge luxury cruising vessels of today. Dhows are perfect for a dinner cruise as they offer the features of indoor-outdoor seating and 360-degree glass walls. And pairing them with a 3-course international buffet makes these dhow cruises one of the most popular recreational experiences in Dubai.
