Shaikh Mohammed, vice-president and prime minister of the UAE, launched Ferry Dubai at the Dubai International Boat Show the latest water transport service offered by the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA).

The ferry, which will operated by the Roads and Transport Authority, will sail in the Dubai Creek and link Jumeirah Beach, Dubai Marina and the major waterfront developments.

Initially, there will be two ferries operating, which each capable of carrying 100 passengers but eventually this will be expanded to ten craft as demand for the service grows.

Each journey lasts around one hour and tickets can be purchased onboard, with discounts available for children under ten years of age.
