Bahrain Pearl Snorkeling Experience - RI21

Trace the history of pearl diving in Bahrain on a 5.5-hour adventure that begins with exploring exhibits at the Bahrain National Museum and then lets you snorkel for gems in oyster beds off the coast. For over 2,000 years Bahrain has been known as the pearl capital of the world, once supplying 80 percent of the world's fine pearls. A guided walk through the Bahrain National Museum reveals the legacy of this market back to ancient times, as you learn how divers were lowered into the sea and controlled their breathing to collect oysters full of pearls. Then relish the chance to experience the rush of pearl diving for yourself. Cast away from Ras Raya Port on a powerboat that whisks you across azure Arabian Gulf waters to a shallow pearl bed offshore. Equipped with a complimentary mask, snorkel and fins, you'll jump into clear waters up to six feet deep and head for the sea floor, where you'll pick oysters up out of the sea like a modern pearl diver. On the return ride back to shore you'll shuck open your batch of oysters to hopefully find treasured pearls inside. Any pearls you find you get to take home as the ultimate souvenir of your spectacular snorkeling trip.
