The Dubai Marina water canal is a renowned piece of architecture and a premium area for a dinner cruise.


We operate 2 very similar refurbished dhow boats in Dubai Marina, Alexandra I and Alexandra II.


An important part of any function is the entertainment!

We can offer you 3 excellent options to entertain your guests.

Live Vocalist

Who doesn’t love a beautiful female voice? Our lovely singers will add a little flavor to your dining experience with some pieces that you will surely recognize!

Tanura Dance

The tanura dance is a flurry of movement of light that is extremely visual and will definitely leave an impression for someone seeing it for the first time.


Everyone loves to see things they cannot understand. We all want to feel that inner child, and one of the few things that can do that is a craft illusionist.


Below is a sample menu which we use on our daily dinner cruise, however we have a

wide range of menu builders which will be shared to you along with a quotation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the boat located?

The boat is located in West Bay, Dubai Marina - you can see the map location if you scroll down.

How much is the price per person?

Its not a simple answer because every event is different, we tailor make each event to fit the needs of the group.

The price depends on the duration, timing, type of menu, entertainment and extras. You can see the price section for an idea of each component.

For small groups, we can work out a semi private option that will fit in timing with our other groups and will be a more budget option.

Can we have our own catering?

Yes, however please note it needs to be a full catering provider that will provide all necessary equipment and staff, not just the food.

For any other questions please call or whatsapp Timur Khamitov, contacts listed above.

we have said everything about ourselves, but what is more important is what others say about us

we dont hide from our mistakes, all the review platforms below


Dubai is filled with a thriving community of a large mix of expats and companies which are constant need of a wide range of private parties – corporate dinners, weddings, engagements, conferences, birthdays & team building activities.

Its very difficult to organize a party that which will actually stand out and be enjoyed by all the attendees.

A lot of things need to come together for a succesful private party;

  • Right choice of party venue

  • Right choice of catering & menu

  • Right choice of entertainment

  • Right logistics & timing


When people look for a party venue, most think of a ‘party hall’ or a ‘party hall in a restaurant’.

The reality is, most party halls are enormous and although well suited for large parties, they are quite boring for small ones and also unaffordable.

A few years ago we started working on private events with Alexandra and have gotten some excellent feedback on the private events which we have ran, which were tailor fitted to the event.

Since the beginning, we have had more than 50 private events of the widest catergories – weddingsengagement partiescorporate eventsbirthday parties for adultsbirthday parties for kids & team building activities.

As mentioned above the very first and arguably the most important component of any private event or private party is the event.

The venue needs to:

  1. Accomodate the right number of people

  2. Thematically fit the overall mood of the party

  3. Be comfortable

Alexandra is a very unique venue for a small to mid size event of a maximum of 100 guests.

The venue is unique in a couple of ways:

  1. It moves

  2. It has both an A/C ‘hall’ and an open air area in one ‘venue’

  3. The boat is unique, made from teak wood and decorated interior.

  4. Entire venue is wired for clear audio

    1. Live entertainment, vocals, dance

    2. Wireleess microphone for speaking

  5. Male and Female washroom onboard

  6. Buffet tables on upper and lower decks

Alexandra thus combines within itself a lot of characteristics that make it fit for any kind of event.
