After reading views at tripadvisor I booked a journey for me and my friend. When we reached the place it seemed like ok it will be a normal boating experience. But guys oh my it was great. They even gave us pearls as well. They showed us how they get it from the oysters and how difficult and rare they are to find. Overall it was a great experience. I would highly recommend it to everyone who is here in UAE.

We enjoyed our relaxing boat journey through the mangroves. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was very interesting to learn about pearl diving in the Abu Dhabi, and that it was a prominent source of income and employment before the discovery of oil. During the journey you are offered Arabic coffee, dates and water, at the end you get to open an oyster shell, and have the excitement of finding a pearl in the shell which you can keep, after it has been cleaned in salt water and given to you in a gift bag. Thank you for a lovely fascinating morning.

Relax on a boat ride and learn about Abu Dhabi’s pearl history, the old ways of pearl diving and different types of oysters and pearls. You can enjoy Arabic coffee and dates. At the end you can eat fresh scallion (specific to this region not found anywhere else), and you even get to keep a pearl from the fresh live oyster that you opened!
