Oriana Leave Pago Pago

Updated: Nov 26, 2020

What a treat to leave Pago Pago in America Samoa early in 1974.

Flower petals are sprinkled over Oriana from the cable car as she departs this beautiful Island.

Pago Pago is the capital of American Samoa. Pago Pago Town is the heartbeat of American Samoa with its stunning deep-water harbour (a collapsed volcanic crater) and its huge Tuna canning factories.

I was offered a job here by by Robert Cavangher who ran the shore excursions at the time. However the airfare to reach the middle of the South Pacific back in 1974 was prohibitive.
