Discovering Qatar from a Dhow Boat: Photo Essay

Discovering Qatar from a Dhow Boat Cruise

Dhow Boats are the traditional fishing boats in Qatar. While not much fishing is happening on them now, you can rent them to sail the harbour and go swimming. Usually, you cruise for about 30 minutes, swim for a while, then eat and slowly head back for a total time of four hours. Depending on who you go with, it can be a party boat and can get crazy! When the boats anchor for you to swim you have to watch out for all the guys on jet skis. Fortunately for me, I was on a non-party boat, and it was a relaxing day with friends and good food.
