Arrived in Suwarrow on Sunday morning and had no issues entering the pass as the Navionics chart was very accurate. We are anchored just off the main Motu and have booked in. We were charged $70 instead of the normal $50 because we hadn’t received approval for coming to Suwarrow. This was annoying as we had applied in plenty of time, but not too much of an issue.
Suwarrow is a very remote Atoll 300-400 miles North of the other Cook Islands and is a National Park and populated by 2 Park Rangers. There are currently only 2 other yachts here so it feels really remote. It is very nice here and there are quite a few snorkelling sites as well as bird watching areas. We plan to stay at least a week, but may stay 2 weeks and then head straight to Tonga.
