  • Watch out!!! Unfortunately we were fooled here. Therefore, there is no good rating. We just wanted to go 2 stops and suddenly AED 160 was asked for 2 people instead of 1 AED. Unfortunately, the boat....  more »
  • We can recommend an Abra tour at Deira creek. The boats are bigger than expected and very clean. Very friendly staff  more »
  • Experience the more relaxed ambience and the real Dubai with lots of cosmopolitan vibes. Head to the Abra Stations clearly marked with Green posts along the Creek front. Queue at the Abra station posts clearly marked with different Gate numbers depending on which area you desire to cross over to. Just ask the men standing at the Gate Posts, they are friendly and speak English and will help you with which Gate you need to cross over from. You pay 1 Durham to cross over (make sure you carry 1 Durham coins for The Boatman) on the Abra water taxis. Pay the boatman after you take your seat. He collects the 1 Durham after his Abra boat is full of people. It’s all done very efficiently and quickly. Takes 2mins to cross from the Gold/Spice Souk side over to the Old Souk side. The Abra Taxis operate from early morning until late evening down at Dubai Creek. The best/cheapest form of transport to go back and forth on the Creek. You will be sorry if you miss this authentic experience!
  • This is a basic place but one of the best experiences in Deira and Old Dubai. The Abra ride to Bur Dubai is short, not more than 5-10 minutes, but it's a wonderful experience crossing the creek in the old open boats. You can feel the cool wind and look around the happenings around the busy creek. And it costs only 1 DHS, so it's also the best way to cross the water.
