Cruises from Pago Pago
Pago Pago Bay (pronounced "Pango Pango") on the island of Tutuila is the capital of American Samoa, a chain of seven South Pacific isles about 4,000 km south of Hawaii. Due to a massive seaward wall of a volcano collapsing aeons ago and opening to the sea, the harbor is hemmed in by towering mountains. Mt. Matafao (653m) and Mt.
Alava (491m) form part of the National Park. Both have trails leading to their summits and offer spectacular views. Pago Pago is more village than city and the town is dominated by looming Rainmaker Mountain (3 peaks to 524m), giving Pago Pago the highest annual rainfall of any harbor in the world. Explore the ancient volcanoes and coral atolls, and walk the length of the town's water edge to experience village life.
