I am interested in celebratging new year 2012 both in Tonga as well in Samoa
islands and would like to know the availability of ferry service on 1st January
2012 at Niuatoputapu to go to western samoa to arrive on 1st January 2012 due
to international date line imaginary date of 1st though it is 2nd Jan at Tonga.
That is a bit confusing, and I am not sure what you are asking. Quite a distance between Samoa and Tonga. However, the Int'l Dateline cuts right through the island of Tonga, and through the International Dateline Hotel located on the island, where it is Sunday in one end of the hotel, and Monday in the other end.
I understand what you want, as I have done the New Years Eve thing twice. Here is how we did it back in the day:

Perhaps a clarification of what you are asking is in order......d:o)
