Abu Dhabi launches new passenger ferries today

City’s first scheduled, multi-destination passenger ferry service
In a first for the capital of the UAE, the first scheduled, multi-destination passenger ferry service is soon to be launched in Abu Dhabi, giving residents and tourists a new experience.
Due to start today, the rides will offer a new perspective of the city and its landmarks. Founded by Emirates Consortium, the Jalboot Marine Network will link attractions in the city and surrounding islands with a scheduled daily service between 14:00 and 21:25.
The jet-powered ferries will make stops at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi Mall, Yas Marina and the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. Further stops will be included in the near future. The ferries can seat up to 40 passengers, two standard wheelchairs and three crew members.
They will allow people to “explore major destinations with ease, safety and comfort, and at an affordable price, offering a picturesque alternative to road travel,” TTG MENA writes.
