Whether you’re on an abra, waterbus, water taxi or ferry, travelling by water allows you to sit back and enjoy breathtaking views.
An abra is a wooden boat that links Deira and Bur Dubai across the Dubai Creek. Originally, abras were manned by boatmen using oars — today they are motorised.
The waterbus plies Dubai Creek as well as Dubai Marina, providing a modern water transit service.
Water taxis have more privacy than other forms of waterborne transport and often have amenities such as premium seating. There are water taxi stations along the coast, from Al Mamzar to the Atlantis Resort on the Palm Jumeirah.
Dubai Ferry service
Dubai Ferry travels between Al Ghubaiba and the Marina Station, and all the boats boast the latest in navigation systems. In addition to creating an important link to our transport system, they give passengers and tourists a great view of the Dubai coast and skyline.
