Southern Tour of Savai’i
This tour covers the south coast of Savai'i - from Salelologa to Taga Village.
Your day begins early with a pick up from your hotel for your transfer to the 8am ferry. Then sit back, relax and enjoy the1 hour 15 minute ferry trip on Lady Samoa III from Mulifanua to Salelologa. On arrival in Savaii you will enjoy a brief visit to the very colourful Salelologa fresh fruit market where you will have an opportunity to stroll through the market and purchase some local produce. The tour then heads down to Savaii’s stunning southern coast. Along the way we will drive through several small coastal villages and a lush rainforest area.
The highlight of the tour is the arrival at the Alofaaga blowholes which are impressive in sight and force. Natural tubes of lava rock meeting the ocean allow for ocean swells to shoot water in jet streams as high as 30 meters into the air – truly spectacular! Another popular stop is a "Tapa cloth" or "Siapo" making demonstration. Siapo, is an age old traditional art Samoans have used since the beginning of time to decorate and clothe. Siapo is a type of paper/cloth made from pounded bark. A Siapo making demonstration is a delightful experience where we take you to the fale/house of a group of local Samoan women who will run you through the process. You will see how they collect the raw product from the surrounding environment, how it is processed and then made into the final piece of fine artwork.
Heading back into Salelologa, a stop is made at the beautiful Afuaáu falls where a rock pool at the base of a waterfall allows for a swimming break. Lunch is provided before returning for the 2pm ferry back to Upolu.
