Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to the jetty on Dubai Creek for your cruise. Then, take the red carpet that leads on to the beautiful, glass-walled Bateaux Dubai. 

Receive a welcome drink and nibble on canapés as your boat leaves its moorings, and enjoy the next 2.5 hours as you cruise up and down the winding creek.

Take a seat inside the glass-covered deck, find a spot on the open roof terrace or linger on the outdoor deck to absorb the stellar views of Dubai’s illuminated skyline.

Relish the cooling evening breezes as your boat glides beneath the Maktoum and Floating bridges, and take snaps of the Twin Towers, Deira Tower, Clock Tower and Dhow Wharfage. 

Pass the Grand Mosque, Old Boat Port and Old Souk, and enjoy a second opportunity to take photos of the floodlit landmarks as your boat turns back along the creek.

Savor a delectable, 4-course dinner of gourmet cuisine, with a wide choice of dishes. See the Itinerary for sample menus. When you book, choose from two drinks options to accompany your meal—a selection of sodas or a package that includes house wines.

After your meal, perhaps return to the open-air decks to admire the last, memorable views.

Your experience concludes when your boat docks at the original departure point.
Pass By:  
JA Bateaux Dubai
Our cruise route takes us past the captivating sights on both sides of Dubai Creek or Khor Dubai, a 14-kilometre natural seawater inlet. It has played a major part in the region’s economic development and was particularly important for pearl diving. The Creek divides the old city into two parts, namely Bur Dubai and Deira.
Pass By:  
Dubai Courts 1
The Emirate’s judicial courts comprise the Court of First Instance, the Court of Appeal and the Court of Cassation. The Court of First Instance consists of the civil court which hears all civil claims, the criminal court which deals with claims originating from police complaints and Sharia court, which is responsible for matters between Muslims. The Court of Cassation is the Emirate’s Supreme Court.
Pass By:  
Floating Bridge
Opened on 16th July 2007, this six-lane pontoon bridge on the water was built in less than 10 months to help ease traffic flow. The bridge is 365 metres long and 22 metres wide, with a capacity of 6,000 vehicles an hour. It is open daily from 6am to 10pm and allows boats to pass through at off-hours. It will eventually be replaced by the new, 12-lane Al Ittihad Bridge, which is due for completion in 2017.
Pass By:  
Deira Clock Tower
One of the oldest witnesses to change in Dubai, the Clock Tower was built around 1963 to mark the country’s first oil exports. It is on a roundabout on top of an underpass and remains a significant landmark when residents give directions to the area. The structure was refurbished in 1972 and the four clock faces were replaced in 2008, removing the need to manually change the hands on the clock.
Pass By:  
Dhow Wharfage
Numerous wooden dhows and boats, which have traditionally been the vessels of livelihood for members of the region’s local population, make this an area that has remained wonderfully intact since its birth during Dubai’s early trading days.
Pass By:  
Dubai Chamber Of Commerce & Industry
DUBAI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The headquarters of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry is located inside this 91-metre high building, which was the seventh- tallest building in Dubai at the time of its construction in 1995.
Pass By:  
Emirates NBD Head Office & Main Office Branch
Built in 1998, this 125-metre high building was inspired by the curved hulls of the traditional dhows on Dubai Creek. It houses the headquarters of Emirates NBD, the largest banking group in the Middle East in terms of assets. The group was formed in 2007, when Emirates Bank International merged with National Bank of Dubai.
Pass By:  
Etisalat Tower 1
This very distinctive building features a large sphere at the top, sometimes likened to a giant golf ball. Completed in 1992, it is 100 metres tall and inside it is the head office of Etisalat, one of the UAE’s telecommunications providers. In 2012, Forbes Middle East named Etisalat the most powerful company in the UAE.
Pass By:  
Deira Twin Towers
Sometimes called the Rolex Towers, these two 102-metre high buildings were constructed in 1998. They contain a shopping centre, restaurants, a residential section and offices.
Pass By:  
Dubai Gold Souk
It has been suggested that more than 10 tons of gold is present at any time in this souk, or traditional market. Hundreds of shops sell and make jewellery here. Dubai’s free trade policies have encouraged Indian and Iranian entrepreneurs to set up shops in the souk, spurring a growth in gold trade during the 1940s and continuing today.
Pass By:  
Dubai Spice Souk
The narrow lanes of this traditional souk (or market) are lined with open-air and closed-roof stalls that sell fragrances, spices, frankincense, incense and herbs. It’s a sensory journey to walk through the fragrant souk, where textiles, rugs and artefacts are also sold.
Pass By:  
The Dubai Heritage Village
Created in 1997, this village in the Shindagha historical district showcases a glimpse of what traditional life in the UAE was like during the pearl diving era. Craftsmen sell handicrafts in characteristic barasti houses and there are some displays depicting scenes from the time
Pass By:  
House of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum
This classic and beautifully restored historic building in Shindagha was originally established around 1894 as the seat of the Al Maktoum family. Sheikh Saeed Bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai from 1912 until 1958, lived here. Today, the house is a museum that contains artefacts, old coins, stamps and images of old Dubai.
Pass By:  
Dubai Museum & Al Fahidi Fort
This museum is situated in Dubai’s oldest existing building - Al Fahidi Fort - which was built in 1787. Opened in 1971, it features an extensive presentation of traditional life in pre-oil Dubai with dioramas and local antiquities on display.

Dubai Honeymoon
, Apr 2020
This was our honeymoon trip to Dubai. We had a great experience in the dinner cruise and would recommend to friends and family.
A Divine Dinner
, Mar 2020
The Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise was the capstone of our recent trip and worth every penny. The two + hour cruise was truly a romantic evening on the Creek, navigated with minimal wake, and great food and soft music tailored for the cruise. I would highly recommend this cruise for couples, singles, or groups. Great staff as well.
A must dinner cruise
, Mar 2020
Fabulous dinner cruise, we upgraded to include alcoholic drinks and with Dubai prices that was a wise decision. The boat was set up beautifully with a lady taking photos as you entered. These are options to buy. There was a pianist/singer throughout who played in the background and was too obtrusive. The food was stunning, far better than we expected. I would highly recommend this trip. Our only criticism if you can call it that was that there was no commentary on what sights we were seeing, a little info would have been good
A good night out experience
, Mar 2020

Delightful evey
, Mar 2020
We enjoyed a delicious dinner whilst enjoying night views of Dubai from the Creek. Staff were friendly and we could not fault the service. We chose the option that included alcohol and found this to be good value.
Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise
, Mar 2020
This was 5 star. Choice of starter, main course and sweet. Food was excellent. Waiter service was excellent. If you want alcohol include it within the package. Alcohol is very expensive on the boat. Only downside is the departure point. We were staying at the Marina. It was a 35 minute metro ride away and then a 15 min walk to the departure point. Metro shuts at 11pm so very tight timescale to catch last metro train. Taxi back was £25 sterling. This trip should include an option for pick up and return to hotel
Good experience
, Feb 2020
We hade Bateaux Cruse dinner in February 2020. Very friendly and professional staff, nice food picture.
A must-do in Dubai
, Feb 2020
We had a truly amazing experience aboard this ship! The staff was top-notch and the food couldn't have been better, our best meal in Dubai by far! Don't leave Dubai without going on this lovely dinner cruise, you are treated like royalty!
Not Professional At All!
, Feb 2020
If I could give a 0 I would have! We booked and after checking out and paying the system kept on throwing us off. Eventually went through but the wrong day. Re booked and when we got notifications from our bank money was taken of twice! We then immediately send them a email and there response was we can not refund you! Shocking as this is theft! Still waiting for management to contract us and refund us for the 1st booking!!!!!!!!
