Ferries and Boats

Abu Dhabi has several ports, among them ميناء زايد (Mina Zayid) and Mina Jabal Al Dhanna. Passenger service is not available, however, and the nearest port serving cruise ships is in Dubai.

Due to tremendous population growth over recent years, the emirate’s Department of Transportation is conducting the Surface Transport Master Plan (STMP). Significant expansion to public transit is being studied, resulting in the potential additions of water taxis and other modes of transportation by 2030.
