Dubai Creek and Deira
Updated on 19 February 2017

The best way to see the impressive buildings that have sprung up along Dubai Creek is from the waterway, and bustling Abra stations will provide you with a quick and efficient way to cross the water.

Water taxis and Abras

Dubai Creek is full of water taxis and Abras ferrying people around, and can be boarded at numerous locations along the banks. Abras are small barges that are powered by diesel engines and can seat around 20 people. Incidentally, the work force commute across the Creek on a regular basis and there are over 17,500 Abra crossings per day, so if you're wearing expensive or light coloured clothing it's advisable to remain standing for the trip, as the bench seats can get a little grubby. Abras can also be hired for private trips along the Creek and if you negotiate well with the boat captains, you should get a good deal.
