Sort By

  • 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.

As shore excursions to be offered in this port are not yet confirmed, below is a list of those offered previously. We make every effort to have excursions finalized at least 240 days in advance of sailing, and often sooner, so please check back regularly.

  • Pago Pago's Eastside & Downtown

    View Pago Pago's picturesque eastern side and have an enlightening view of downtown on this mostly panoramic tour.

    Depart from the pier and head toward the eastern side of the island, making several stops along the way. One of those stops is famed Sadie's Inn, where English writer Somerset Maugham penned his short story "Rain," the inspiration for several movies.

    You will also have a photo stop at Pago Harbor, where you will be treated to some lovely views from the other side of the bay. Further along, you'll have another photo stop to see Camel Rock. The shape of this off-shore rock formation brings to mind the image of a lonely camel and thus, gained it the name Camel Rock. An additional stop before heading back towards town will be at Avaio Beach, referred to by the locals as $2.00 beach. Your stop here will provide an opportunity to take some photos, bask on the sand or take a swim in the ocean if you like. There are also souvenirs, soft drinks and beer available for purchase. Before arriving back in town, there will be one final stop at the new local market, which features fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables and some souvenir stands.

    Arriving back in the mountain-rimmed American Samoa capital of Pago Pago, you will enjoy a panoramic tour that passes by several historical buildings. Although rather diminutive, this town of approximately 4,000 boasts several noteworthy attractions, which include the white clapboard columned courthouse that looks like it belongs in the American South, not American Samoa, the police station, Navy communications building and post office, now named the Jean P. Haydon Museum. Afterwards, you'll transfer back to the cruise ship pier where your tour concludes.

  • Samoan Cultural Experience

    Witness one of the most esteemed ceremonies in Samoan culture, performed by an illustrious High Talking Chief at a traditional village.

    Begin your tour with a breathtaking drive west, during which you'll delight in the island's natural beauty and historic landmarks. Highlights include the monolithic Fatu-ma-Futi or Flowerpot Rock that rises straight out of the ocean as if standing sentinel at the entrance to 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.

    Despite readily embracing such non-native doctrines, Samoans still cherish traditional ways, especially with regard to ceremonies and social occasions. This tour demonstrates the significance of a High Talking Chief or ""tulafale."" Think of him as the village spokesman, a grand orator highly skilled at holding the audience's attention through his extraordinary use of language and ancient proverbs.

    Dressed in traditional garb, the High Talking Chief will launch into an animated and authentic performance of an ancient Samoan ceremony used to welcome visiting VIPs. It's absolutely hypnotic to watch his passion and respect for Samoan values, as he weaves his dramatic tale for your entertainment. After the ceremony, which takes place in an open-sided thatched ""fale"" building, you'll be treated to a traditional dance performance and complimentary fruit punch before driving back to the pier.

  • Village Way of Life

    Visit a recreated traditional Samoan village where the ancient ways of island life are still faithfully practiced and watch 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 at a uniquely laid-back small recreated 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.
