The day tour begins with a pick up from your Upolu or Savaii accommodation. If you are staying in Upolu, your tour also includes the return ferry transfers from Malifanua to Salelologa Wharf.
Your first stop for the day is at the Salelologa Market. As you meander through these colourful markets, it is the perfect opportunity to purchase a holiday memento from one the many local vendors selling handicrafts and souvenirs or savour the tastes of some local Samoan produce. From this point the tour heads south towards the coastline travelling through lush tropical rainforests, numerous small coastal communities and onto Taga Sea Arches.
After taking a photo or two of Taga Sea Arches, travel onto Savaii Island's must see natural phenomena, the Taga blowholes. Created by a series of lava tubes watch as the almighty force and pressure of the ocean waters build beneath the surface to erupt, shooting saltwater up to 30 metres in the air. It will surely impress.
