The Boat Ride from Ofu to Ta’u, American Samoa

Feb 23, 2019Travel

From my trip to Ofu in January.

Early morning boat ride from Ofu to Ta’u. Big thanks to Ben for helping set me up with getting across and getting from the wharf to the airport. It was an epic boat ride… the lightening of the sky, soft ripples on the water, dew on the boat’s windows, fleeting view of dolphins, birds soaring past us, and of course the mountains bidding tofā and talofa.
