Try pearl hunting

#11 of 20 things to do in Abu Dhabi
Do you want to learn how to hunt for pearls? You will have such an opportunity in the water park Yas Waterworld. It is a place with unique attractions, that have no analogues in other water parks.

This attraction is a water tank 5 meters of depth, in which you dive holding your breath like a real pearl diver and collect from the bottom three oysters with precious gems. Two diving instructors will accompany you in the process.

Once the oysters are delivered to the land, you will be invited to the store of pearls, where they will teach you how to properly open the oyster, tell you about the types of pearls and reveal other secrets of pearl hunting. You can purchase one of the found gems, and even order it set in a jewel.

This entertainment is available four times a day for adults and children aged 8 and up.
