Bluewaters is soon to become a luxury destination in Dubai. The tallest Ferris wheel on the island is expected to open in 2020.

Marina Dhow cruise dinner
Marina is an exquisite place with stunning architecture, tall buildings, and above all, the aquamarine water. Dhow Cruise Dinner is an all in one package to experience the opulence of Marina. Dhow cruise takes you for a 2 hour trip across the Marina canal from JBR to Bluewaters Island.
Dhows don’t go deep into the sea because modern Dhows are not made to handle the waves. And also the expensive chinawares on the tables will give away to the rolling of the boat.
But, the dinner cruise, even without the sea experience, is something any tourist should go for. It’s not just about the views. In fact, there is an even bigger attraction on the dhow than the view — the food.
Professional waiters serve Arabic gourmet dinner around half an hour into the cruise. Before that, there are welcome drinks, tea, and coffee. A dinner experience on a boat sailing in the midst of the towering structures itself is something unique.
A male dancer performs Tanoura, the traditional Egyptian twirling dance. All in all Marina Dhow Cruise is a mix of the modern and the traditional.

The large park near JBR is the site for Sky Dive Dubai. And the beach is the mecca of watersports; Jet Skii, Flyboarding, Parasailing, and whatnot.
Luxury Yacht cruise in the Marina waters
Marina hasn’t let down those who love to luxuriate on snazzy boats. Yachting is now one of the beloved hobbies of the wealthy folks here.
Dubai has a rich history entwined with the sea. Both the fishing and pearling heritage has left a mark of pride on the emirate. In the modern era, this legacy is carried forward by ostentatious yachts.
