The trip only costs 50 dirhams there are two tourist trips done one at 3pm I believe the other was at 5pm. Really great way to see Atlantis and the Marina. You can sit inside if too hot or stand outside on the deck!

Air conditioned, inexpensive way to get around the Marina. Not long to wait for ferry as they tend to run every 20 to 30 minutes.

I don't see this advertised much, and there's not many destinations the ferry goes to. It's an interesting ride though, and it's about 1-1/2 hours. The ferry doesn't have any refreshments so bring your food. It is air conditioned. To purchase tickets go outside Marina...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next

Hi We are interested in taking the ferry from Dubai Creek to Dubai Marina. is the ferry still operating at 11.30am from the creek to the marina, we would be there on a Thursday in November. Is it easy to find the ferry terminal from Al Ghubaiba Metro station ? Do you have to get there early to ensure a seat, or can you buy tickets in advance ? Thank you

The ferry leaves at 11 AM and it is easy to find the station at the Deira end of the ride. You do not need to purchase your tickets in advance - typically there is no problem getting on the ferry!
I would like to know how much the tickets are for the ferry. I understand there are different trips but if I could have an idea of it would be appreciated. Thanks
