Inter-island travel is only possible on the ships that leave Apia for Tokelau. These ships usually visit all three atolls twice on each voyage. Sailing time is three hours between Fakaofo and Nukunonu, and five hours between Nukunonu and Atafu. Travel between the small islands on an atoll is usually done in a small aluminium dinghy, or by wading if the tide is low enough.
There are only a handful of vehicles in Tokelau.
