Attractions near The Samoan Outrigger Hotel
Snorkelling at Palolo Deep
The Palolo Deep Marine Reserve is just a short walk from the centre of Apia and the hotel. You can reach this stretch of shallow reef between the beach and the harbour by walking and swimming out into the water for about 100 metres.
Feel free to bring your own snorkel, mask and flippers, or hire a set when you get there. Exploring the underwater marine life around the coral reef that surrounds the blue waterhole is an experience that’s especially rewarding at high tide.
Big game fishing
Head out to sea with an experienced guide to unlock the fishing spots near Apia. There are tours for novice fishermen looking for a great day out and others for expert anglers hoping to break fishing records.
Half- or full-day tours are available, so you can pick how much time you have to search for some blue or striped marlin. You’re also likely to be reeling in mahi mahi, tuna and wahoo, along with a speedy sailfish or two. With a guide at your side to assess weather and water conditions, and limited numbers on board, a great day out is guaranteed.
