Alexandra Dhow Cruise Dubai


Offering top rated Daily Dinner Cruise in Dubai Marina their daily cruise includes full course buffet, live singer and tanura dancer onboard. Alexandra is a 90 foot traditional Dhow made from teak wood, refurbished into a floating restaurant. Onboard “Alexandra” clients can enjoy two live acts – a singer and dancer. The ‘tanura’ dance show is a folk dance program which consists of constant rotations that are mixed with various patterns and designs of the intricately designed dress. Their talented singer Natalia starts of the evening with some soft music in the style of pop, rock, jazz and even some classical pieces.

A “Dhow” is a traditional wooden vessel that is common in the Middle East and has been used historically for a variety of purposes, primarily for trading. Dhows are hand made in a number of sizes and in the UAE have been most used

In the 90’s era, a few entrepreneurs got together and converted the larger dhows that were traditionally used for trading into refurbished floating restaurants that would operate dinner cruises in the Dubai Creek. That innovative segment has grown and over many years has evolved into a rather important and iconic type of tourist attraction in Dubai. Right with only handful of Dhows in early 90’s the segment has grown into over 30

The dinner cruise in Dubai Marina as a concept began in 2010 with some operators bringing the dhow boats to Dubai Marina and operating floating restaurants. The Dhow Cruise Marina attraction began gaining momentum and popularity and currently is a household product among inbound tour operators in Dubai. In 2018, the dinner cruise in Dubai Marina is considered to be a much more upscale option that any other area in Dubai.


Clients can come onboard Alexandra and have a pleasant ride. With entertainment, they have live performers and meticilous approach to food.
