Is there somewhere to see turtles on Upolu?

I think someone told me there was somewhere along the coast a bit from Aggie Greys resort - is this right? Or is there somewhere else we'd be able to see turtles - we're not going to Savaii.

Hi tropicalsundae,

We saw turtles off the pier for the overwater fales at Coconuts resort. The tour guide (Neil) from Moana tours Samoa has taken snorkeling tours and seen many turtles, maybe send him an email and see if he can help.

You could also take a day trip to Namua Island (off the south east coast) and see turtles and dolphins playing in the wild. The trip is 60 tala pp and that includes lunch, tour of the island and the return boat trip, it's a wonderful experience.

Other than that there is a turtle pool at Malua on the north west coast but they turtles are in a more controlled environment and after 15 minutes there's not much else to do.
