Abu Dhabi will soon have its first scheduled, multi-destination passenger ferry service.

Jalboot Marine Network LLC (Jalboot) will link major attractions and landmarks in the city and surrounding islands with a scheduled daily service. The service will take four stops which will include Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi Mall, Yas Marina and Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. There are also expansion plans to integrate new stops.

“Jalboot will cater to all. It is an exciting alternative to getting around Abu Dhabi’s coastal area. Our intended route offers views that highlight Abu Dhabi’s heritage and traditions,” said Thomas Rebollini, head of finance, sales and marketing at Jalboot Marine Network LLC.

Due to set sail on 19 October 2015, the service will enable tourists and residents to explore major destinations across the emirate. The jet-powered ferries can host up to 40 seated passengers, two standard wheelchairs and up to three crew members.
