Abu Dhabi Pearl Tour

United Arab Emirates

Step aboard a traditional dhow known as a Jalboot and take a seat on an Arabian floor cushion, relax, your journey into a little-known part of Abu Dhabi’s unique history is about to begin. Allow your knowledgeable Emeriti guide to whisk you backwards on the winds of time with tales of how their forefathers dedicated their lives in hope of finding one thing – a pearl.

Pearling has been an essential part of Emirati life long before oil was discovered and skyscrapers began to burst from the sand. Take a journey into the past as your boat navigates the quiet channel lying between Abu Dhabi and Hudayriat Island. Sit back and listen to tales from yesteryear, enjoy local Arabic coffee and dates, and allow yourself to be serenaded by traditional Emirati sea-faring songs.

This unique journey into Abu Dhabi’s fascinating pearling history begins and ends at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara and lasts up to 90 minutes.
