Planning a Sailing Holiday in Samoa


Unlike many of its South Pacific neighbours, there are no small islands and tranquil lagoons in Samoa to explore. Consequently there are no day cruises in Samoa or sailing charters. If you want to try your luck at sailing around the islands head to the Apia yacht club between May and September when overseas yachts are in the region.

In American Samoa, Pago Pago harbour is one of the most picturesque harbours and safest deep water ports in the South Pacific. You can normally find charter boats to take you on a cruise along the coast, with dolphin watching in Fangatele Bay and Aunu'u Island another popular places to visit.
