About Samoa

The beautiful island nation of Samoa is situated just across the International Dateline about half way between Australia and North America. Samoa is the Heart of Polynesia and is one of the last bastions of Polynesian culture.

 

Samoa has a population of around 160,000 people. The majority of whom still practise time honoured customs and the traditional way of life.There are two main islands, Upolo (where the capital Apia is located) and Savaii (The BIG Island).

The beautiful island nation of Samoa is situated just on the western side of the International Dateline. Only 2oklm and is the first place on earth to greet each new day. The islands of Samoa lay about half way between Australia and North America. Samoa is the Heart of Polynesia and is one of the last bastions of Polynesian culture. Samoa has a population of around 200,000 people. The majority of whom still practise time honoured customs and the traditional way of life. There are two main islands, Upolo (where the capital Apia is located) and Savaii (The BIG Island).

 

Samoa offers it’s visitors a very special holiday experience. Fantastic Fishing, Terrific Diving, Sensational Surfing, kilometres of white sand beaches, spectacular waterfalls, traditional villages, and a unique people and culture. One of the great things about Samoa is that so much of the country (Ocean and Land) is sill pristine and virtually untouched by man. Global Commercialisation has not made it’s mark on this Jewel of the Pacific. There is only one international hotel (Sheraton) and no tacky theme parks. Samoa doesn't need them. It's natural seascapes and landscapes provide plenty of ACTION!!

 

You may arrive as a stranger, but all will leave as friends with a smile on their face that can last forever.

 

On the days when your not fishing, you should consider hiring a car and tour the islands. Troppo Fishing Adventures can organise this for you . This way you get to see the special places around the island at your own pace. If you have time, we can arrange a ferry pass for you and the car so you can go and explore Savii. We can also arrange accommodation in traditional fales on both islands, where you will personally experience Samoa’s wonderful culture and hospitality.

 

Of course the best thing about Samoa for us fisho’s is that it is situated smack bang in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded by waters rich in life virtually untouched by man and until now rarely having seen a big game or sports fishing vessel. Don’t miss out. Drop us a line, jump on a plane and get over here. You’ll never regret it.
