Bandar Lengeh - Dubai ferry: Q&A and reports

Bandar Lengeh - Dubai ferry

After what we read about the ferry from Bandar Lengeh to Dubai we expected it to be more difficult but in fact it was the easiest thing in the world.

We bought the ticket for saturday on thursday evening (friday offices are closed) in Bandar Lengeh in a travel agency (we were told you can buy it in any travel agency office) and paid 5'200'000 IRR . Maybe you get it cheaper directly at the port but we didn't want to take a risk. The ferry should leave saturday at 10am, we were told to be there at 7.30am which was way too early.

Many people waiting with huge boxes for getting everything checked, we were asked to sit and wait. 9.30am we were called, checked in our backpacks, went through immigration and waited another 20min.
At 10am we entered the ferry, someone showed us our seats and 15min later we left.
Journey was bumby, they served meals and tea, we watched two movies and arrived in Dubai after 5hours.
In Dubai we had to wait 1hour on the ferry for the bus that brings us to the immigration.
Immigration took some time, different lines for different people, we didn't really get it but officers shouting and showing you your place to stand in line.

After all it was easy, took just much longer than expected including the waiting.

Important: once you get out of the port there are only expensive taxis that ask for 50dollars to take you to the center of dubai. If you walk 5min out in the streets are taxis with taximeter but you need some uae-cash. We walked 1hour to the next exchange office. Better exchange some dirhams in iran beforehand.
