Post by: ipacific on January 25, 2009, 11:25:52 PM
The island of Ofu, in the Manu'a Island group, is located  approximately 60 miles east of Tutuila.  In 1975, the American Samoa Government  completed a civil works project to improve the inter-island transportation system, starting  with Ofu Harbor.  The port at Ofu Harbor now includes a 993-foot long revetment with a  220-foot long entrance channel that is 18 feet deep and 130 feet wide.  It offers a 16-foot  deep, 2.54 acre turning basin and appurtenant aids to navigation.
