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.
I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse into a fun Qatar tradition! If you are in Qatar and looking for a dhow boat cruise, I recommend the company we went with, which was Qatar International Adventures.

It is very beautiful. And it has amazing food!
We have taken many cruises over the years, and we always bring candy with us to give to the staff. It is amazing this little act of kindness brings a smile to their faces. Be friend with them and they will serve you well.
Wow nice Tourism Blog, You know back in the old days people use to prefer Heavy Luxury and expensive Cruises like the MSC in Dubai but now a day’s people are going for cheaper but more free and natural and that’s where the Dhow Cruise Creek comes to mind.
