Buying Tickets

You can buy your Dubai Ferry Tickets at the ferry terminus (each one has its own ticket office right next to where the ferry departs) and they can be paid for by either cash or debit or credit card. You can’t at present book tickets for the Dubai Ferry in advance or online, you need to go and buy them at the time of sailing.

The tourist trips run for around an hour so this is a quite good value for a tour of the Dubai coastline.

There are also two spaces available for wheelchair users in the silver class area of the ferry.

The Dubai Ferry is also available for private hire – contact the RTA on 800 9090 for further information.

    we are two adults and two kids between two to ten years,we want to visit dubai marina circular trip.we want to know can we purchase the tickets online or do we need to come to the point,if so where is the point of contact and what are the timings?

    1. All of this information is on the website! No, you can’t currently book tickets online. Check out the Routes page for locations. Tickets are purchased at the booth at point of departure.

  8. Iam with family coming from Abu Dhabi .Can you please suggest which is best place where we can park the car and go for entire route on Dubai ferry

    1. You will need to check all of the timings to see if you can cover the entire route if that is what you want to do. There is some parking at Dubai Canal Station as well as at Marina Mall if you want to go from there and a big car park near the Safa Park Marine Transport Station (near the W hotel).

  9. Hi,

    We are hoping to do a Dubai Marina Circular Trip with 4 adults and 3 children (ages 6,7 and 9).
    Do you have family packages ?
    If not how much would it cost please? We would like Gold class.

    1. Sorry there are no family packages at present. You can see all of the prices above including the fact that children aged 2-10 years travel at 50% of the adult ticket price.

  10. Is it possible to ride on the outside at the front of the ferry on the trip from Al Ghubaiba to Dubai Marina?

    1. According to the RTA “Disabled people travel free-of-charge on Dubai Buses and Metro” so I would say that no, the ferry is not free but I have not confirmed this.

  11. Hi there,

    Thanks for your prompt response.


  13. Hai, me and family planning to visit dubai on 28/3/17. Could you please let us know wich is the best route for us to enjoy the water kanal experience? We are 2 Adult and 2 children age of 2 and 7 years, wish to know the price also. We are staying near Jumairah Beach so which is the nearest port for us. Thanks

    1. Hi, prices are all shown above. Jumeirah Beach covers a wide area so it depends where you are (JBR or nearer the corniche?). If you want to see the canal you can choose to go from any of the stops along that route (see the routes page) and the price depends on the number of stops. If you want to see the waterfall light up then it is best to go on the last trip of the 3 when it is dark.
