The Dubai abra trip is a great idea to take your visitors on – you get a good view of the creek and the heart of old Dubai, plus all the boats that work the creek laden with imports and exports. With the trip only costing 1 dirham it is a must do.
The trip across the creek takes about 5 minutes and you just queue up and get on the first available boat – they travel over the creek frequently so you shouldn’t have to wait too long. Check out the routes page for more information about routes and operating hours.
