  Point of Entry  
Pago Pago Harbor is the Point of Entry for all vessels arriving in American Samoa.   Vessels are first cleared in Pago Pago before being allowed to enter other small boat  harbors in the territory.  At present, cruise liners call only upon Pago Pago Harbor, while  it is common for smaller pleasure crafts (such as yachts) to visit the other ports after first  clearing in Pago Pago Harbor.     

The other (smaller) port facilities include Aunu'u (new construction), Auasi (Tutuila),  Faleasao, Ofu, and Ta'u.  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.
