One of the most important experiences in Bahrain is to go pearl diving but for some of you who fear sharks (just kidding) or don’t have the time to do so – here’s an opportunity to have a one-on-one experience with a modern day Bahraini pearl diver, Mohamed Slaise.
Mohamed will brief you about the history & modern day pearl industry in Bahrain. You’ll then learn how to open (shuck) oysters in search of natural genuine Bahraini pearls.
The general studies show that the ratio of finding 2-3 mm pearls is 1 in 100 to increase your chances, we will provide you with a hundred oysters in the experience in hopes to give you a good chance returning home with a pearl for the mother of pearls. Your mom?
