American Samoa is a group of six Polynesian islands in the South Pacific. Here's the map.
The main island is Tutuila, with the Manu'a Islands, Rose Atoll, and Swains Island also included in the territory.
The Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary was established to protect the corals reefs and marine life in the area and a thriving coral community and numerous tropical fish live in the clear warm waters around the islands where visibility is greater than 30 metres.
- The coral reef ecosystem, in the Fagatele Bay Sanctuary, contains many of the species native to this part of the Indo-Pacific region. Turtle, whales, sharks and the giant clam all find refuge in this protected area.
- The Southern Humpback Whales winter here from August to November and porpoises and sperm whales visit regularly.
Note - Travel to any destination may be adversely affected by conditions including (but not limited) to security, entry and exit requirements, health conditions, local laws and culture, natural disasters and climate. Regardless of your destination, check your local travel advisory board or department for travel advice about that location when planning your trip and again shortly before you leave.
