For generations, the warm and shallow water of river Zara has been supporting Dubai’s pearl and fishing industries. A Dhow Ride and Creek Cruise is a luxurious history lesson driven by the sea breeze and perfumed with the smell of spices from the Spice Souk. Set against the glitter of the Gold Souk and the old, brown sand houses from Dubai’s past as a fishing village, the Dhow Ride and Creek Cruise is one of the best things to do in Dubai. If you want to learn about Dubai, before it struck black gold, during your stay at the Club Mahindra resort in Dubai look no further than a Dhow Ride and Creek Cruise.

Dhows are wooden boats that were built by stringing together planks of wood with coconut and palm fibres. These boats were used for transport, pearl diving and trading and were an integral part of Dubai’s economy and culture at one point of time. Dubai Creek was the city’s arterial lifeline and gave rise to the bustling areas of Deira and Bur Dubai. Spread out on either side of the creek, these areas are peppered with ancient monuments and market areas like the Heritage Village, Gold and Spice Souks, Sheikh Saeed’s House, the Grand Mosque, and Old Boat Fort. A Dhow Ride and Creek Cruise offers a panoramic view of all of these iconic sites, and more.

A far cry from the old dhows, modern day dhows that usually ply the Dhow Ride and Creek Cruise are equipped with dining facilities on par with any five-star hotel, world-class bars and live entertainment options such as belly dances and Bedouin music, making these cruises a spectacular way to end a day out in Dubai.

With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about the Dhow Ride and Creek Cruise experience, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
