Transportation in Tokelau

Tokelau is not an easy place to get to. The only way in and out of Tokelau is to take a 25 to 40 hour boat trip after first traveling by water or air to Apia, Western Samoa from Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa, or the Hawaiian Islands. The boat to Tokelau departs from Apia approximately every two weeks.

From the government of Tokelau:
"Transport to and from Tokelau is by sea on fortnightly boat services from the closest port in Apia, Samoa. The boat travels to all three atolls, taking approximately 27 hours to reach the southern most atoll of Fakaofo. It is a further 3 and a half hours from Fakaofo to Nukunonu and a further 6 hours to the northern most atoll of Atafu".
