Pago Pago, French Polynesia-port

Located on Tutuila, the largest of the Samoan islands in the South Pacific Ocean, Pago Pago is the capital of American Samoa. First settled by the Polynesians around 600 BC, the islands became a territory of the US in 1900. An important coaling station and naval base, the Pago Pago harbor proved to be of strategic importance during World War II. Today its beauty and ecological diversity make it a popular tourist destination.

    Visit a traditional Samoan village where the ancient ways of island life are still faithfully practiced and watch intriguing demonstrations that reveal the villagers' ingenuity.

    Leaving the pier you will drive towards the idyllic western side of Tutuila. So many breathtaking views await you, each worthy of a brief stop for photos. There's the monolithic Fatu-ma-Futi or Flowerpot Rock that rises straight out of the ocean as if standing sentinel at the entrance to beautiful Pago Pago Bay. Farther west, you'll pass the Leone Mission Monument and several churches that mark the contribution of Reverend John Williams, who landed in the area in 1832 and began spreading Christianity.

    Still, staggeringly beautiful settings and historic attractions aren't the only draws in western Tutuila. You'll also have the opportunity to observe the traditional Samoan way of life by interacting with some local villagers at a uniquely laid-back small village. The villagers live together communally and their thatched wooden structures, known as "fales," are open and without walls, symbolic of the villagers' unrestricted culture. Each fale is devoted to a specific purpose, such as sleeping or food preparation.

    During your visit, you will observe demonstrations on daily activities that illustrate how the Samoans live their lives. The cooking demonstrations are very enlightening and Samoans are the only islanders that cook their family meals aboveground on an "umu" of hot river rocks, which are covered with banana fronds to create an oven of sorts. Following the demonstrations you will get to sample the resulting dishes, giving you a true understanding of everyday Samoa village life. Afterwards, you'll re-board your bus and drive back to the pier.

    Please note: There is minimal walking on this tour, mainly at the guests' discretion during stops; however, there may be some steps and uneven terrain to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate comfortable clothing (no shorts please); sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Transportation is via wooden island buses that have no air-conditioning. The order of the sites viewed or visited can vary.
