This is a “little abra” or water taxi on Dubai Creek (which is actually an estuary of the Red Sea flowing through the center of bustling Dubai). They ferry passengers between Dubai and Deira on either side of the Creek and can also be hired for a sightseeing tour. There are also “big abras” offering the same ferry service. They queue at the jetties the same way automobile taxis do at taxi ranks and are usually loaded with workers going to and fro.
