After about an hour drive in beautiful scenery, my daughter and I ( senior citizen) arrived at the Civa pearl farm. Tide was out and we were met by a very attentive young man and helped into a skiff to take us out to the structure where the pearl farmer does his magic. For a 35 Fijian dollar fee , Claude gave us a very informative and interesting demonstration on pearl farming and his sidekick Rizzi(?) took us out to snorkel and show us amazing and beautiful underwater delights. Of course the reason we went , was to hopefully purchase a pearl. And Claude did not disappoint. There was a wide range of colors , grades , and prices. Claude worked with my daughter to get a bracelet with a beautiful yellow pearl exactly how she wanted. It was delivered the next day as promised. And I was delighted with my necklace as well. All for around 600 Fijian. We spent about 2 hours there. Our taxi was 75 Fijian dollars round trip and he waited there for us. It was an awesome experience and I have some great memories to share with my daughter.
Be sure and take a dry bag with your important stuff ie. credit card, cash , towels if you plan on snorkeling , snorkeling gear and a change of clothes. Or not if you don’t mind staying wet for a bit. All the cabs there have plastic covers on their seats so being wet is not a problem.

We visited the pearl farm on site out in the ocean. We had a great educational experience about Fiji pearls from the owner. We learned about the color of pearls just like diamonds have different colors. These pearls are unique to Fiji and take a long time, up to nine years, to cultivate a large beautiful pearl. We were also able to purchase directly from the farmer/owner. Highly recommend and would definitely purchase again.

While the farm tour is no longer available, the Pearls are and the depth and variety available make a visit worthwhile - we had the owners come to us and display their wares, MAGNIFICENT and very well priced.

If you want to spoil the significant person in your life - get her one of the Civa Pearls.
Magnificent peals at the shop with some spectacular colours found nowhere else in the world.
Didn't visit the farm (too busy) but did go to the shop near the airport.
Wide variety of pearls and prices.
