Water taxi service launched in Abu Dhabi’s Eastern Mangroves
A new water taxi service using traditional wooden abras has been launched to connect the Eastern Mangroves promenade and Souk Qaryat Al Beri.
The service will operate at weekends between 10am and 6pm.
“Passengers can experience the beautiful views of the mangroves, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the hotels and marinas and enjoy a trip that is not only fun, but also practical and affordable,” said Antonio Neto, who manages the tours and events company Capt Tony’s, which is operating the service. “These are two very popular areas for residents and tourists with a host of restaurants and attractions.”
The cost of a one-way adult ticket is Dh50 with a return costing Dh80. Children aged from 6-12 pay Dh30 and Dh50 respectively, while children aged under five travel free.
