Booked a surf day trip at very very short notice. Was getting back on the board after a bit of a break. Neil's a ninja. Can totally recommend him if you're wanting to check out scene in Samoa. Very easy to deal with and very accommodating. He took us to a spot, which is quite possibly the best waves I've... More

We celebrated our ten year anniversary in an over water bungalow at Coconuts resorts in August 2015. Neil Lumsden and the Manoa Tours operation is based right on the Coconuts beach. We scored surf almost every day. While surfers on other boats were scrambling around in the dark trying to find their driver we were on the boat and headed... More

My wife and I visited Samoa for the first time a few months ago, looking for a relaxing getaway combined with some fun waves. Samoa was hands down the best trip we've had in 20+ years of travelling, with stunning scenery, pristine water and the friendliest and most genuine locals we've every encountered. Our trip was made even more enjoyable... More

We were able to surf and snorkel from the same boat which is relatively unheard of. Neil (?) was really knowledgeable about the reef and how to surf the waves as well. Nice guy and waited for us to arrive.

I spent 2 months in Samoa from March to May 2015 for volunteer work. I also was looking for an opportunity to surf but not on my own. As I did not know any of the surf locations I needed someone with local knowledge. Because I was not a typical visitor looking to stay in a resort, surf camp or... More

Had a blast surfing Samoa with Neil. I had been emailing Manoa Tours for a couple of months prior to going to Samoa. Galen and Neil were both awesome with all my questions leading into the trip .We deliberately stayed at coconuts knowing that Manoa Tours operated out of there, it couldn't have been any easier. I was stoked to... More

We were recommended by Jack and Carol at Lupe Sina Treesort to speak with Neil if we were interested in either surfing or a day trip. Neil is a great operator. Super knowledgeable, easy going, and great fun to hang out with. I surfed for two sessions with Neil, and my partner and I went for an afternoon trip snorkelling... More
