If you have never gone on a fishing trip before, you will be excited to know what really happens during such trips. Having chosen Dubai as your destination to do a tour in the sea waters is another great choice you have made. Dubai has been known to be the cradle for fishing in the past.

As a matter of fact, fishing was one of the economic backbones in the region. The modernized dhows common in the region were basically used by fishermen to sail through the waters when fishing. Nevertheless, things have changed completely and now the dhows are being used as tourist attractions in enhancing views of both the new Dubai known as Dubai Marina and the traditional Dubai known as Dubai Creek. In these two locations, you will find thousands of tourists having cruised to view beautiful architectural designs and others visiting a museum. Many visitors prefer having dinner cruises to having fishing trips. The fact remains that you can’t be having cruises along Marina and Creek for a whole month or entire season; you will need some more escapades. If you don’t go to desert views then the only choice you have is to get to the waters of Dubai and have some fishing trips.
