Take a boat with a glass bottom or opt for a snorkelling trip and see thousands of ropes with oysters growing off them in many directions. Twice a year, during the seeding season which occurs in April-May and October-November, you will see how pearls are implanted and harvested from the oysters. Pearl farms are situated in the bay town of Savusavu on Vanua Levu.
