A nice, not too known way to go from Marina to Old Town passing very closely to Burj Al-Arab. A must use!

What a great way to see the whole Dubai coast line. 1.5 hour ride and worth every penny of the 10 quid. We took the ferry at sunset. Will be doing it again late afternoon!

The trip only costs 50 dirhams there are two tourist trips done one at 3pm I believe the other was at 5pm. Really great way to see Atlantis and the Marina. You can sit inside if too hot or stand outside on the deck!

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next

The ferry leaves at 11 AM and it is easy to find the station at the Deira end of the ride. You do not need to purchase your tickets in advance - typically there is no problem getting on the ferry!
