The Old Pearl Diver

A photo of the shop front of The Old Pearl Diver in Souq Waqif

When visiting Souq Waqif you may come across this popular attraction.

It’s the shop belonging to Saad Ismail also known as the Old Pearl Diver. Because he was a pearl diver, and well… now he’s old.

Drop in and have a chat with him. He will keep you entertained for ages with his stories of the past, and in return perhaps you could help support him by making a small purchase or two.

In his shop window there are some lovely images of Saad back in his prime. And I can’t help wondering if I’ve seen him somewhere before.
