What’s New in Dubai: Pearl Diving Experience with Jumeirah

Jumeirah Pearl Diving ExperienceThe Dubai-based Jumeirah Group has launched an exclusive new offering for guests to experience a slice of authentic Emirati life. The ancient pearling industry was once a vibrant part of the UAE’s economy-- long before the discovery of oil in the region. Some of the world’s finest pearls were found in the Arabian Gulf, and local fishermen would dive to great depths without equipment in pursuit of this treasure. From the Pavilion Dive Centre at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, guests can dive into pearling traditions by boarding a traditional dhow (from Palm Jebel Ali), and—after a demonstration by trained professionals—go pearl diving themselves.

Even if you come up empty-handed, you’ll enjoy snorkeling, swimming, and a lunch feast with regional specialties. This new experience takes place from Tuesday to Saturday every week, departing Jumeirah Beach Hotel at 9 am and returning around 3 pm, and costs AED 700 per adult.
