We took a short boat tour to Bu Maher fort located in southern Muharraq city. Though the site is simple, the boat tour was a great way to make us happy.

The Ministry of Culture succeeded in inscribing this site as a World Heritage Site in 2012. This site represents a testimony of around seven thousand years of pearling history in the Arabian gulf. The visitors center located next to the fort is the starting point to discovering the Pearling Road.


  • You can buy a ticket at Bahrain national museum reception for 1 BD.
  • The boats depart daily from Bahrain National Museum between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM to take passengers to the Bu Maher Visitors Center.

Upon returning from there we produce this short film hope you enjoy it!

      Boat ride take about 5 minutes to reach Bu Maher fort, and you can stay there for 20-30 minutes.
      The boat fits around 10-12 person.
