Review: RTA Waterbus from Festival City to Ras Al Khor

IMG_1744As announced by the RTA last month a RTA Waterbus was started from Festival City to the Ras Al Khor Birds Sanctuary and back,

Today we had planned to try this out. It was praised by the RTA as a scenic ride with good opportunities to take pictures…

Well, maybe yes if they would clean the windows of the Waterbus or would open the doors to enable you to take some snapshots. The Waterbus we had was dirty, filthy and not very welcoming. The windows were dirty and it was impossible to take proper pictures. They charge 25AED for the trip per person which is definitely not even worth 10AED. In my opinion they should either have a better boat for this or stop the route. The experience we had was sadly very disappointing for the 4 of us. Will definitely not recommend this trip to anybody.. You are better off with a Ferry Boat trip from Dubai Marina or Al Ghuhaiba station..
