The Dhow Wharfage is situated alongside the bank of the Dubai rivulet, north of Al-Maktoum viaduct. The Dhow Wharfage is still used by small Gulf merchants, some in dhows that are well over 100 years old. Travelers can perceive the insight in to the life of a sailor by watching the freight being loaded and unloaded. The sailors quite often offer tourists a tour of their vessel. Many of the dhows tour on to Kuwait, Iran, Oman and India on the high seas. Tourists are encouraged to travel around and discover the Dhow Wharfage to take in the activity and lively panorama of an area that has endured the same since the early days.
