Not your typical snorkeling tour, this Bahrain adventure gives you the chance to search for pearls underwater. Either snorkeling or scuba diving, you’ll collect oysters in the hopes of finding some that contain that desirable mineral. Professional dive instructors will guide you according to your ability; beginners will snorkel while certified divers can choose from three dive sites. Pearl diving is a part of Bahrain’s past and current heritage, and this is a hands-on way to experience a piece of local culture.
  • Gain insight into a way of life in Bahrain on a pearl-diving tour
  • Learn about the process of gathering oysters and cracking them open to find pearls
  • Enjoy the rush of (hopefully) finding a pearl
  • Tour limited to 10 for a small-group experience

Fun in the Sun

This excursion is a great unique way to see what Bahrain has to offer. This is a nice half day trip.The guide/instructor is professional and super nice. The boat is perfect for this type of thing. The snorkeling option is still fun for those who are not certified in diving. There are plenty of refreshments on board. The crew goes above and beyond to make sure you have a good time. It is really cool to see Bahrain from the water. And if you find a pearl you get to keep it.
