The waterfall starts from 7 p.m, till 10 p.m. it is powered by 80 water pumps with their changing light colors make the waterfall look beautiful. This waterfall can open and close like curtain and it’s controlled by sensor while the boat pass through the waterfall, the waterfall is switched off then it’s switched on again automatically by the sensors.
Dubai Water canal is one of the latest attractions of Dubai It was inaugurated on 9th November 2016 by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, this waterfall is so respectfully giving way to the passing by marine traffic just like a Gentleman. This is an artificial Canal… made by the water from the Sea You can enjoy a long trip in your private boat in the Dubai Water Canal or can get a ride by RTA’s Ferry or Water Taxi. RTA is the Road and Transport Authority of Dubai.
