About
The Suwaidi Pearls pearl farm is located in the small fishing village of Al Rams, which nestles at the bottom of the majestic Al Hajar mountain range in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. Established in 2005 by Mr. Abdulla Al Suwaidi, the world’s first Arabian pearl farmer. For the first time in history, the region is now farming Arabian Pearls in the surrounding seas. This historic development links the past to the future and is the defining journey from historic natural pearls to the pearls of the region today. Suwaidi Pearls had opened its doors to the public to share the unique cultural heritage of the pearling industry, explaining the historical evolution and inviting guests to see the underwater treasures of the natural lagoon. Rich in biodiversity and an area of outstanding natural beauty, all around are the gifts of nature. The area is a garden of paradise and a magical place that brings a serenity to the surrounding area.

Our visit exceeded expectations and was the highlight of our recent trip to Ras al Khaimah.
Our transfer boat to the the pearl farm was terrific as we viewed the stunning scenery; the majestic Hajar Mountains, the camels drinking water on the shoreline and the mangroves which are regularly visited by flamingoes. We didn't see any of the latter although there were plenty of camels.
The pearl farm was located on a 2 deck traditional wooden boat, with the decks covered in beautifully decorated arabic rugs.
Our guide Ombaid was excellent, taking us on the journey of how pearl farming evolved in the UAE and its importance prior to the discovery of oil. Then we witnessed how the pearls were farmed and subsequently graded.
I cannot recommend this experience enough.

Wonderful and truly unique experience. If you would like to learn about pearl farming in a natural surroundings and beautiful scenery next to the water, this could be an amazing activity. 2 hrs experience including with boat ride to the pearl farm and back, this tour will boost your knowledge about pearls and farming. Obaid is so knowledgeable and it happened to be such a great story teller, that you will be interested to hear every single thing he has to share with you. History, past and the scientific elements about oysters and forming pearls. His conversational and speaking skills are fantastic and he will definitely turn your journey into memorable and enjoyable experience. Thank you !

Suwaidi Pearls tour is well worth a visit. Obaid is so knowledgable and captivating when sharing his knowledge. An opportunity to learn a lot about the past and present of pearl farming in an enjoyable way. In beautiful surroundings and a gorgeous return boat trip passing the Hajar mountain range.

The Pearl Farm is well worth a visit. It’s good to learn about the way the Emirates dived for natural pearls and how they have adapted to grow cultured pearls.
Obaid our guide is so knowledgeable and lead us through this wonderful experience, answering all our questions and involving us all in the process.

We learned so much about how they farm cultured pearls. Also learned about the history of pearl diving in this region before oil was discovered! Our tour guide Obaid was amazing and so knowledgeable! Great sense of humour too! Thank you so much!

I loved this tour. It was so interesting. The founder of Suwaidi Pearl Farm was friendly and fluent and interacted freely with the guests. The pearls at the small shop are expensive but so gorgeous. It is about an hour's drive from Dubai but definitely worth the drive. The farm is on a lake nestled in a beautiful part of UAE with a majestic mountain range in the background.

The Suwaidi Pearls tour experience is completely evocative and atmospheric - you become deeply immersed in the culture and traditions of Ras Al Khaimah (Julfar).

From the boat trip out to the pearling farm in the perfectly mirror-flat waters of the Gulf, the coffee & date biscuits served onboard to the incredibly interesting and genuine sharing of knowledge on the history of pearl diving.

This was hands-down the best tour we’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing, and is a truly wonderful way to explore and understand the significance of Ras Al Khaimah throughout the centuries.

Amazing and friendly team, Suwaidi Pearls you stole our hearts!
