Many luxury boats and dhows now berthed in the country’s marinas will sail out today carrying holiday crowds to waters around Doha as the Eid break begins.

A number of boats, small and large, have received trip orders according to sources. Rates start from QR450/hour for small boats to QR1,500/hour or even more for large boats. A boat operator said there is no fall in the rates even though demand is not that high. “Most bookings we have are for shorter trips of two or three hours.” Customers said trips are mainly to islands like Ala, Sabilya, Banana Island and Sraya.
