TOUR DETAILS

SUMMARY

You must be familiar with the term ‘Dhows’. Surely you have heard or seen the traditional wooden yachts from the UAE. Despite their beauty, they represent an important part of UAE’s economy; international trade being at its heart. Since the formation of the UAE, it has long-standing ties with Iran. These beautiful Dhows commerce between Iran and Dubai in a 35-hour water crossing. Transporting everything from livestock, perishable foods, electronics to clothing. The Dhow Wharfage is the docking port and resting spot for many Iranian captains. If your lucky, you can meet one of the captains who enthusiastically will show you around his ship. Many wont understand English, hence, a gesture of giving them cookies to drink with tea will most likely get you invited onto the ship.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

For you to explore and discover. You’re on your own at this point!

PREPARATION BEFORE THE TOUR

Be willing to explore and speak with captains. We suggest you bring along a box of cookies to give to the sailors, if and only if, they invite you on their boat.

    Wow – the sailors were so welcoming! Thankfully, I had a cookie box to give in return for the coffee once invited on the Dhow.
