The new visitor center replaces the previous one that was destroyed by the 2009 tsunami and culminates the national park’s recovery efforts.
It is much more than a facility, it is a gateway into the heart of Samoan life as it existed long ago, as it still exists today, and as it will exist long into the future.The visitor center provides you with opportunities to understand and enjoy the cultural and natural wonders the park seeks to protect.

During the warm months of the southern hemisphere, Samoa’s humpback whales feed in the rich Antarctica waters, 3,200 miles to the south. When Antarctic's bitter winter sets in, humpbacks seek warmer waters, migrating northward, towards Australia and Tonga. At least some migrate onward to Samoa.
