Samoa's fascinating underwater environments
Samoa is surrounded by pristine Pacific Ocean that stretches out to the horizon and beyond. Until you dive beneath the surface, you won't really know the marvels that await you in the deep. Samoa's main islands regularly run scuba diving and snorkelling tours that appeal to all levels of divers. With plenty of marine life to see and wrecks to explore, excitement is guaranteed.
If you want to stay dry, but still encounter some of the underwater creatures, you might want to head out to the deepest areas for some fishing. Deep sea fishing charters put you in boats with professional fishermen who help you reel in the giants of the deep.
Active and leisure options
If you feel like getting out and about while in Samoa, you can join a cycling tour around the islands to gain valuable insight into the parts that make the country's nature so incredible. For something a little less tiring, sooth body and soul with a yoga retreat amongst the serene wildlife.
Samoa is also home to interesting museums including the very popular museum dedicated to the memories and lifestyle of novelist Robert Louis Stevenson, and the Museum of Samoa. Afterwards, get back into the active lifestyle with a surf camp that will have you carving waves like a pro.
