While it is a fair way out to get to any of the actual coral and wild life, once you reach the stick in the water you will start to come across all kinds of fish, squid and corals. Take a breath and dive down...More

Phenomenal snorkeling place for somewhat experienced snorkelers. There is a Blue Hole in the middle of this large coral reef. The reef has many kinds of corals and vegetation and it is excellent for seeing fish and turtles. Generally you are swimming about 2'-3' over...More
I must admit I was a little sceptical when I saw the location was so close to town, but I'd heard it was great snorkelling. It's best to go near high tide - so check the times before you go. There's plenty of shelter and...More
We took our own snorkelling gear to Samoa which was well used. Palolo deep marine was really accessible. For 5 tala each you get hours of fun. Make sure the lady points out exactly where to go and find out when is the best time...More
We arrived right on high tide for a sneaky bit of snorkelling.
We paid the $5 tala entry and went in to find a place on the beach.
The main snorkelling area is about 50m from the shore so it’s a bit of a hike...More
Definitely check when high tide is and visit then. Easy to reach from town, walking or by taxi.
Pay at the entrance, a number of fales and tables (and shade). Limited other facilities (don't think the kiosk had operated for a while) so make sure...More
Even sitting in waist deep water near the shore we could still see plenty of fish, so it would be fine for anyone who is able to put their head under water. Having said that, there is a strong current (we weren't told about... More
Even sitting in waist deep water near the shore we could still see plenty of fish, so it would be fine for anyone who is able to put their head under water. Having said that, there is a strong current (we weren't told about) so keep hold of the kids! Recommend that you take your own gear ... we did as we were told that the stuff there wasn't the best
They just rent out snorkelling gear - take your own food and drinks - lovely spots to picnic under shade. I think entry was about 5 Samoan tala or maybe 10 but terrific value. Saw loads of fabulous fish. Suggest one hour... More
They just rent out snorkelling gear - take your own food and drinks - lovely spots to picnic under shade. I think entry was about 5 Samoan tala or maybe 10 but terrific value. Saw loads of fabulous fish. Suggest one hour each side of high tide is best time to go - otherwise you have to wade a long way before you reach swimmable depth. It's not far to the nearest cafe or shop. You need to swim to the marker you can see sticking out of the water to reach the deep hole. The attendants will be helpful and show you where to go. Enjoy!
