Talofa Cruises Samoa
The Samoa Shipping Corporation, the company operating the passenger ferry service between Upolu, Savaii, and Tutuila, has launched a new division, Talofa Cruises, offering day cruises on a fast catamaran purchased in Australia in February, 2008. The 150-passenger Lady Filifilia is the former Reef Quest, a dive boat formerly based at Cairns and used for scuba expeditions to the Great Barrier Reef. A choice of four day cruises are currently offered from Apia, including a trip right around the island of Upolu at US$115 with lunch and snorkeling. Scuba diving is available at additional cost.
