there was (not sure if still around) some sort of sub-aqua vehicle that would drive around the creek area and then drive into the creek - let me see if I can find some info

Here check this out

Not sure how good - not 'been there, done it' but certainly different

Also lovely evening dinner cruise on the Creek (Bateaux i believe - expensive but very nice with music/belly dancing)

take them to the souk medinat, lots of little mad shops and outside some great restaurants, not too pricey and you can sit outside and get a view of the burj al arab and watch the little boats go past.

We did that in our first week and thought it was great.

How about the cable car at Dubai Creek Park, which is a pleasant green place to visit anyway...after, you can drive across the Floating Bridge and take drinks or shisha on the Dubai Yacht Club terrace to catch the sunset.

I have used these guys for various activities in the past and they're really good: http://www.desertrangers.com/

They do a range of stuff including deep sea fishing, camel trekking, safaris etc

Good luck!
