Easter Island

we will be arriving on Easter Island with the Dawn Princess on the 12/08/14. Can we tour the island on our own?

Yes but if u have enough time, try to join a tour organized by Kia Koe. Its fun to meet and be with a group of amazing people. Then rent a car and enjoy more.

Did they warn you that you may not be able to get there because of the swells?

See tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g316040-d318… "A warning: Only one in four cruise ships (Source: National Geographic) can actually berth at Easter Island via tenders and when this cruise was sold it should have been made clear to intending passengers as many would have booked this cruise believing it is a certainty to get onto the island because of its magic appeal. Just when we were there we missed the Tapati Rapa Nui festivities and this rubbed salt into our wounds! The captain ordered a round-trip around the island so at least the Ahus (platforms) and Moais (statues) could be seen in the distance. "
