Savaii Palolo Rise

One of the most fascinating natural phenomenon is the rise of the Palolo. It is traditionally predicted to take place 7 days after the full moon, coinciding with the third quarter of the moon phase, with igh tide between midnight and the early hours of the morning. The relationship between the phase of the moon and the emergence of the Palolo has been local knowledge for centuries. Palolo is a Samoan seafood delicacy only available twice a year. This first rise is usually abundant and on the island of Savaii. Tours are arranged for visitors through local operators and tourism establishments.
