Where to snorkel in Samoa

Am heading to Samoa in 6 weeks and I can't wait!!!

We would like to know where the best places are to go snorkeling and if it is worth paying to go on a snorkeling tour? If so, what are the best people to use?

Cheers in advance.

1. Re: Where to snorkel in Samoa

We love snorkelling, and to be able to do so in perfect safety from the beach in front of your resort is paramount. In that respect, the best we have found is the huge bay in front of Savaii Lagoon Resort and the adjacent Le Lagoto. Dive Savaii is also based there, and will take you out on a very entertaining, 4 hour trip to 3 wonderful spots for just 60 Tala per person. The area is so safe you could reach them without a boat if you are a confident snorkeller!

If you are staying in Apia town, then don't miss the Palolo Deep Marine Reserve.

In the South East area, Lalomano is fantastic, although we havn't been back since the tsunami.

Another very interesting sounding prospect that we will check out next time is Le Uainaresort at Faleapuna on the North East coast of Upolu.

Don't waste your time outside Aggies Lagoon Resort, although there is a dive operation there that will take you to the outer reef.

I went on a Dive Savaii tour a couple of weeks ago and it was great. The guides are really friendly, and the sites are quite interesting. We saw turtles in the ocean as well which was special. I'd reccommend getting an underwater camera as that was the one thing I regret having.

i toally agree, go on a snorkelling day trip with dave savaii, so cheap and so much fun, we also go to go to a few site and saw a turtle ( my highlight!)

its also fun at lalomano ( as the water here is amazing, there are lots of fish, but alot of the coral has been destoyed from the tsunami now)

also nice ( tide depending) at sa'moanoa resort ( the coral here didnt appear to be damaged, compared to lalomano)
