Marine Transport Ramadan Timings 2019

The RTA have announced the timings for the marine transport services during Ramadan and they are as follows:

The timing of marine transit services during Ramadan will be as follows: The Water Bus will operate at Marina Stations (Marina Mall, Marina Walk, Marina Terrace, Marina Promenade) from 12:00 (at noon) up to 00:00 (midnight). On Friday from 01:00 pm to 01:00 am (of the following day). At the Dubai Water Canal, the Water Bus will operate from 09:00 am to 5:00 pm and from 9:30 pm to 12:30 am (past midnight).

Dubai Ferry will be calling at Ghubaiba and Marina Stations (interchange journeys) at 11:00 am, and 05:30 pm. At Dubai Marina Station it will operate (round journey) at 05:00 pm and 10:00 pm.

So this means that the trips between the Marina and Al Ghubaiba will change in the evening to run at 5.30pm instead of 6.30pm and the lunchtime sailing at 1pm will not run during Ramadan.

The round trip at 3pm will not run during Ramadan and there will be an extra round trip at 10pm from the Marina.

It appears from the RTA announcement that no round trips will run from Al Ghubaiba during Ramadan.

We have also been advised that the service running between the Marina and Dubai Mall will not run during Ramadan.

If you are in any doubt about whether any trips are running then you should call the RTA on 800 9090 or visit the Marine transport station from which you wish to depart and they should be able to advise you of specifics.

Ramadan 2019 in Dubai is likely to run from Sunday May 5th to Tuesday June 4th, although final dates will be confirmed nearer the time corresponding to the sighting of the moon.

  1. Hallo, I can not find an answer to my question on your Website.
    Please Tell me, if there are any sailings form Water Canal Station to Marina during Ramadan ?

    1. The sailings from the Water Canal to the Marina start off at Al Ghubaiba so you need to see above for the timings (i.e. the 1pm sailing does not run and the 6.30pm sailing is changed to 5.30pm (from Al Ghubaiba) so the sailings will be 1150 and 1850 from Dubai Water Canal but you should confirm this with the RTA before travelling.

  2. Thanks for the information. I would like to know does it run from Al Ghubaiba to Marina at 1 pm during Ramadan ?
