The authentic Arabian pearl expedition is going to take you on a traditional dhow from Yas Marina and journey towards a dive site. During the trip, you will listen to traditional pearl diving stories and sing along age-old Emirati songs.

You will learn the traditional pearling methods and be shown how to harvest real oyster shells from the depths of the Arabian Gulf. On the scenic return journey, you can learn techniques used by the boat’s “nokhada” or captain, to open their oysters and find the hidden treasures lying within. 

The Serdal Pearl Diving Expedition can be enjoyed by participants of all ages, and those who are good swimmers can participate in the pearl diving portion of the trip.

Set out to see every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. Complimentary refreshments and light snacks will be provided.
