The best part of our trip to the “farm” was the boat ride there & back. When we arrived at the “farm” we were given an overview of the process to cultivate a pearl by the most disinterested “guide”. She was clearly distracted the entire time and just kept talking about the process w/no time for questions. You are better off watching a video online about the process. The only positive of the experience is that you are able to buy a loose pearl for around 1000 CFP (roughly $10 US) which was cheaper than quite a few other places we visited.

We were on a bike ride too see the infamous Blue-eyed eels and the tour that stopped next to us at the eels, stopped at the Pearl Farm, so we stopped to. What's not to love? A free boat ride to a an attractive hut stationed over the water to look at beautiful pearls and pottery, I am in! There were quite a few folks there already from the tour, so we must have missed the quick talk on the "how-to's" of process and harvest of these little gems, but no matter, my sister had been on a tour before and knew how to explain quite a bit. We ventured inside and were in awe of the stunning necklaces, earrings and bracelets available. It was our anniversary the very next day, and I was sweetly surprised with a, "pick out what you'd like..." Oh the fun! I actually chose a necklace of keshi pearls. There are several pearl farmers that produce keshi pearls from salt water. Keshi pearls named after the Japanese word for poppy, spontaneously appear like seeds in the bodies of any mollusk as a result of the culturing process. There is no irritant to breed the mollusk. A keshi pearl is "natural" and therefore highly prized being made up of pure nacre, a rare material. They are sold by weight like gemstones.

We stopped by this little jewel of a place as part of an outrigger tour. I was captivated by all of the loveliness of all the beautiful pearl creations. So much so that when we were told to come outside, I thought we were leaving but were to be giving a description of cultivating the pearls instead.It was very interesting. After the presentation I quickly went in to explore some of the beautiful pottery as well as the pearls. I ended up buying an unusual imperfect somewhat double pearl necklace on a leather cord. I had a hard time deciding between this one and a round one so I asked the sales lady to mix them up and I was to pick one with my eyes closed. I picked the imperfect beauty on a leather cord. I also bought some earrings. I think they were reasonably priced and comparable to so many of French Polynesia pearl shops. Regardless, I like my necklace and it will always remind me of a beautiful time spent in Huahine.

Nice boat ride over to the farm, informative presentation on the process of seeding and harvesting the pearls. Prices were not terribly bad not terribly good, the pottery is beautiful. They had a small basket of small pearls for about $10 which I let the kids chose from and they were thrilled to have their own black pearl! Ended up buying a necklace similar to one I saw at the hotel which is not the traditional single pearl or strand, but a long cord with large (albeit flawed) pearls and carved beads/spacers. Definitely would include in a trip.
