I loved the snorkeling. Neil was awesome, he took us to an incredible snorkeling spot. It was a very good day for the family.

We hooked up with Neil to take a snorkeling trip with our 4 children ages 6 to 13. My husband and I found Neil's professionalism refreshing. We felt that we were in safe hands taking the kids out into open water. Upon reaching our snorkeling area, Neil stopped the boat and allowed all of us to enter the water near... More

Has 4 trips out with Neil including one early morning surf with no wind, which was the best. Neil is organised and knows what he's doing. No time limits on surfs. Used the snorkel gear on board at one point as well. Very good value. Would recommend. Cheers.

Surfed everyday. Neil goes out of his way to make sure your in the right spot at the right time. It didn't matter if there was 8 of us or 2 of us he was on it every morning and making sure we got the best of the swell. Being a paramedic the first thing that I noticed about Manoa... More

Best guide in Samoa hands down...knows the island inside and out. Best decision ever to stay with a local family and use Manoa tours each day to be at the best possible location. The surf resorts are a hoex and will not get you the best waves. Thank you for sharing your deep insight and knowledge with us!! We will... More

Whether it is snorkelling, turtle tours or surf that you are after, Manoa Tours has it all covered and will make sure the whole family has a great time. I can't recommend Neil highly enough. He will hunt down a secluded swimming spot for the family or a great wave for a surf, with excellent knowledge of local reefs, tides,... More

With the world's most spectacular and unpolluted coastline (amongst which is hidden some of the best reef breaks) Samoa is an ocean lovers paradise. With 16 years of local knowledge Neil from Manoa Tours an essential guide to experience all that is on offer. Neil also shows a passion for the local culture, community, economy and environment which we appreciated.
