The sixth episode of the GMC #OurUAE mini-series starts off with Mohammad and Majed mountain biking in full gear. After a quick race down the mountain, our travelers hop back into the GMC Sierra 3500HD and continue on to the shores of Fujairah, where they’ll see how local fishermen catch Indian mackerels, bigeye scads, and Indian oil sardines.
The veteran fisherman explains that there are different tactics used to catch the fish, one being the “Tagoah,” where the fish on top are caught by a net which creates a small wave. A net is spread out by hand, and then a car or truck is used to pull the net in immediately – an easy task for the beefy GMC Sierra 3500HD.
Next, the pair visits Kaye Spenser Sumalangcay, a dive master, who will take the two brave adventurers beneath the water’s surface where mottled moray eels, spotted eagle stingrays, blacktip reef sharks, and other creatures await. Despite Mohammad and Majed joking about the chance of sharks, the snorkeling adventure seems to be pretty darn fun.
After swimming with the fish, the travelers make their way to Wurayah valley. There they meet Maral Chreiki, the operations manager of the reserve. Chreiki explains that the reservation has been closed down after being a well-known tourist attraction due to pollution and destruction over time. For instance, it took the workers a year and a half to remove all the spray paint defacing the beautiful rocks near a precipice.
