Manoa Tours has been operating since 2005, they are a family run business located on the South Coast of Upolu, Samoa. Manoa Tours offer daily surf transfers, snorkel, hiking & learn to surf lessons and a variety of accommodation options.
Guided Surf Transfers SAT$ 100.00 Samoan Tala pp $47 AUD.
Upolu Island has a number of great surf spots, many of which are located on the South Coast. Enjoy surfing in crystal clear, warm, tropical water comparable to an aquarium! We take our boat or vehicle daily to the best location, depending on wind and swell direction, getting our guests the best waves possible. Our knowledgeable surf guides have unparalleled experience and know the waves extremely well.
The surf boat is kept at Coconuts Beach Club Resort and Spa, but guests can stay anywhere & head out for surfs with us.
Manoa Tours Guided Surf Transfer Details:
*Manoa Tours Recommends Clients book 1 Surf Transfer per day. This gives
clients the most flexibility. Clients may book extra Surf Transfers per day if they
choose to do this upon their arrival.
*Manoa Tours takes Guided Surf Transfers 1-2 times per day. Once in the early
morning and again in the afternoon if the conditions allow. We surf around the
high tide in Samoa, and choose the best location based on wind, tide, swell & conditions.
We usually recommend Coconuts Resort to the high end/resort style guests, since its a nice place to stay, on the beach & offers pool, spa, restaurant, nice rooms with Air Con, etc for guests. There are more “budget” and hut/beach fale type options & there is also mid range option that is in town (Apia) called the Samoan Outrigger Hotel which we work with.
So it really depends on the budget of our guests & then we help them find a place to stay that works for them.
High End – Coconuts Beach Club Resort and Spa. Check out resort facilities on CBC page at www.soulsafarissurftravel.com
High End – LupeSina Treesort is a new treehouse resort which is pretty amazing http://www.lupesinatreesort.com/
Mid Range – The Samoan Outrigger hotel (in town, so guests get a rental car to get around the island & get to surfs to meet up with us at Coconuts) http://samoanoutriggerhotel.com/
Budget – Posalas/Lupes Beach fales are simple beach fales/huts on the beach, they are next door to Coconuts so great for surfers wanting cheap on the beach. Really basic though! 🙂
Most of the surf in Samoa are reef breaks accessed by boat. On the South coast of Upolu, there are a number of consistent breaks, including: Coconuts (Right hand reef pass), Salani (Right hand reef pass), Boulders (Large lava rock left hand point), TafaTafa (Right hand reef pass) and Nuusafee Island (Unbelievable left hander wrapping around a deserted island). Along with the names mentioned above, there are numerous other options on the south coast of Upolu that our guides will show you while you are here!
With Manoa Tours you are able to access every wave the area offers, including Coconuts where you are fortunate enough to access several breaks within a short paddle from the resort, which truly is a surfers paradise.
The best time of year to score waves here is from February through to October.
