New Ferry Services Along Dubai Canal

Some big changes are coming to the routes for the Dubai Ferry.

A day after the Dubai Canal is due to open at the end of the month, the RTA has announced that there will be additional ferry services using the canal, as well as some changes to existing services.

HE Mattar al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the RTA announced:

“The Dubai Ferry will offer service in five stations, two at the Dubai Water Canal, and three at the Business Bay. There will be three newly scheduled two-way daily services for the Dubai Ferry from Al Jaddaf Station calling at Dubai Design District, Al Wajeha Al Maeyah, and Marasi stations in the Business Bay; and the Sheikh Zayed Road and the Dubai Canal stations in the Dubai Water Canal. The services will start at 10 am, 12 midday and 05:30 pm. The current line of the Dubai Ferry shuttling between Al Ghubaiba Station and Marina Mall Station will be modified to call the Dubai Canal Station. Thus, the Dubai Canal Station will link between Al Ghubaiba, Marina Mall, Business Bay and Al Jaddaf. Due attention has been given to the integration of other transit modes (buses, trains and taxis) in order to provide a smooth and safe service for commuters,” explained Al Tayer.

“The fare of the tourist class of the Dubai Ferry will be AED15 to one station, AED25 to two stations, AED35 to three stations, AED45 to 4 stations, and AED50 over the entire line. The fare of the gold class will be AED25 to one station, AED35 to two stations, AED50 to three stations, AED60 to 4 stations, and AED75 over the entire line. ” added Al Tayer.

  1. Hi, we went to the Canal station (the one alongside Safa Park, under the curvy bridge) yesterday and it looked closed (there was a road block in front of the gate and no one in the station), also no info was displayed on the station board, can you tell me if the Canal station is to be reopened, when, and at what times can I catch a ferry there.

    Alternatively if this station is closed, how can I get on a tour of the canal? I would like to do a circular trip : get on and get off at the same station after touring the canal

    Thank you

    1. Unfortunately I am travelling right now and unable to check the situation. The best thing would be to call the RTA and check what the current situation is.

    2. I’m wondering if you were in the right place as services are running at Dubai Water Canal Station.
      There are no circular trips at present.

  2. Do u have tickets sale for 31st Dec, also the timing is there a cruise at night by which we can see fireworks?

  3. Hi there! I would like to ask if do you offer a special trip to Dubai Canal or entire trip? I would like to know the prices. Thank you!

        1. The old route from the marina to Al ghubaiba now stops at Dubai Canal Station where you can change and go up the canal.
