Our base is located on the West Coast of Upolu where we are sheltered from the trade winds, with easy, safe access across the reefs. There is good snorkelling and fishing between the reefs and opportunities to sail within the reef. We often see large turtles just outside the reef and occasionally see eagle rays within the lagoon.
Depending on conditions and your experience there is plenty to do. Travel in a double kayak with a guide in the back, or if you are more experienced take a freedom rental and explore further in singles or doubles. Paddle to Manono to see this unique island where dogs and cars are banned or to Le Vasa or Sheraton Resorts for lunch.
Our kayaks are mostly Southern Endeavors (doubles) and Shearwaters (singles) and are suitable for novices and advanced kayakers. They are sit-in boats designed to be used with spray decks.
On breezy afternoons we can shake out the Pacific Action sails for a fast, free-ride down wind.
Free pickup from Le Vasa and Sheraton Resort.
Coming from Apia it is a 60 Tala taxi ride (we can organise as required), or catch a local bus for 4 Tala and experience the wooden busses with their deep base music (an experience everyone should try once).
