Onboard a traditional dhow, in the Eastern Mangroves of the Arabian Gulf, you will discover how the pearl divers hunt for the pearls and live for around 4 months in the middle of the ocean.
At a time you prefer, you will get the chance to witness pearl diving, the first tour of its kind. You will get a deep explanation about the pearl diving industry, while listening to folk songs sung by the pearl divers, lovingly known as ‘hoyamal music’. After that, you will be given a live demonstration of pearl diving and how the pearl is extracted from the oyster.
