As plenty of other reviewers note, this is a highly improbable place but a great snorkel. Well worth the effort with a huge variety of coral and fish in a calm setting fringed by a protective reef from the nearby port and town.
Snorkelling in clean calm waters and be rewarded by some nice fishes, some “aggressive” to try to tap you into your face mask. Visited on public holiday so there were many locals there adding to the ambience. Perhaps more could be done to protect the...More
This is a great location to see a wide range of tropical fish right off the shore. The snorkelling is in shallow water and you swim out to a wooden post that indicates a drop off of over 5 metres. I scuba dived with the...More
This place is fantastic as there are so many different types of coral and fish and they are only 100m from shore. It was the only place we got to see big starfish. My only regret was that I didn't take flippers, which made it...More
I found this place because the only day I had available to SCUBA was Sunday- but you will quickly learn Sundays in Samoa are for church and family.
So I needed something else and I found this on a map! I asked the Sheraton to...More
Nice place to snorkel or swim. Only $5 local currency. Take reef shoes as there is some coral to get past first. They have change rooms and a shower which is nice. Only a 5-10 min walk from the cruise terminal
A lovely area tucked away behind the wharf. Lots of shade and seating. Bush shower to rinse off afterwards. The day we were there the current was quite strong. I'm not a strong swimmer so I didn't feel very confident in going too far out....More
Best place we've snoreled on Samoa for sure. On lots of places throughout Samoa you find corals smashed and dead and you really have to look for a lively part of the reef. Not here though. This place is vibrant and alive. Lots of beautiful...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!
