Swains Island Visit: 2007-7
2007-10-31 - Six of us dedicated Traveler's Century Club members rented the boat "Bounty Bay" to go from Samoa to Tokelau in July of 2008. A definite highlight of this six day trip was spending three hours on remote Swains Island. Today only six people live there. They are paid caretakers for the island. Their two dogs heard our boat and alerted the family to our presence.

Once on shore we went to the fresh water lake in the middle of the atoll, drank coconut juice and had a very pleasant visit.

The most amazing thing to us was how remote Swains is. But yet it had a good population years ago.
