We had some high expectations of this trip and people on the island rave about it...and it didn't let us down! From the minute we got on the boat, to leaving it was just a laugh a minute! The snorkelling spots are great and something you will never experience without a lagoon cruise tour. We stopped on a remote island... More

If you dont do Captain Tamas you will be missing out!! Had an amazing time with beautiful food, tonnes of laughs and some great knowledge on the many uses of coconut. One thing to note before booking with captain tamas. If you dont understand polynesian humour and are easily offended by jokes then grow a thick skin first. Your sour... More

Did a snorkel trip with them but unfortunately they took us to the same spot our resort took us the day before. Lessoned learned. They had fun on the boat and kept us entertained. Being the only Aussies on board I learnt something, Kiwi's call Islanders coconuts. I thought only we did that. On the island they cooked some tuna... More

I booked online for the combined cruise and highland paradise night. Got confirmation of booking however starting times were not stated anywhere. Looked on TripAdvisor and saw that the start time was 11am. Arrived at 10.58 to see the boat halfway down the lagoon. Apparently they did not check who was booked in for the day and left when they...

Oh so sorry you missed the boat. Our departure is well documented as being 11am but everyone should arrive 30 minutes before departure and check-in with staff. Unfortunately, you did neither and considering that you had booked for the 2 days prior to this particular day and did not turn up on either day the crew assumed that you were... More

Very well run tour, the staff are friendly and funny. The place where you stop for snorkelling has alot of colourful fish. The lunch and entertainment were very good! Well worth doing if visiting Rarotonga.
