Suwaid Pearl Farm Tour

Pearl Farm visit in Ras al Khaimah

Visit Suwaidi Pearl Farm in Ras al Khaimah and learn about the most lucrative profession in the Emirates, pearl fishing, before the discovery of oil! Learn about the tradition of pearl fishing and witness the opening of an oyster and the fishing of a pearl from it.

Pearl fishing has been a major source of income for most UAE residents in the recent past and has been closely woven into UAE culture. It was pearls that, before the discovery of oil, were the greatest wealth of the Persian Gulf, whose warm, shallow waters yielded some of the world's most beautiful specimens. When the Japanese discovered how to create artificial pearls in the early 20th century, the practice of pearl fishing naturally declined. Due to the discovery of oil in the Gulf, jobs in the oil industry quickly took over as the most popular profession in the region.

Start your adventure in the old fishing village of Al Rams and take a 30-minute ride in a traditional pearl fishing boat through the mangroves to Suwaidi Farm, located on a floating pontoon structure. Learn about the history of Arabian Pearls and enjoy the spectacle of opening an oyster in search of a real pearl!
