Dhow Cruises

Hop aboard and enjoy an unforgettable past-time, where a heartwarming sense of Bedouin tradition lets you drift over the Sharjah waters in harmony.

Dhows are synonymous with Sharjah’s seafaring past and once plied the region’s waters laden with fish and pearls. Today, you can enjoy a day cruising the east coast or around Khalid Lagoon in Sharjah city. One of the most popular day trips is sailing the Musandam Peninsula from the Omani side of Dibba, passing fjord-like bays and hopefully spotting dolphins, swim and snorkel in the aquamarine waters, or just relax on deck. Prices start at around Dhs 200 per adult, including lunch. With luck, your visit may coincide with one of the dhow-racing events held in the Arabian Gulf or in Khorfakkan bay on the east coast, where you can see the sails billowing in all their glory.
