Dubai Water Ferries are high speed air-conditioned vessels, cruising along the coastal line of Dubai. They operate out of four stations, Al Ghubaiba, Dubai Marina Mall, Dubai Canal and Al Jaddaf. A fifth station, Al Mamzar, requires 48 hours advanced arrangements. Although the word “ferry” implies a vessel that commutes people between stations, in Dubai water ferry is more of a cruise boat than a regular public transportation boat. Water ferries are ideal for tourists who are interested in seeing the awesome Dubai skyline and taking great pictures of famous Dubai landmarks.
