Adventure Cook Islands is Rarotonga's Dive and Adventure Specialist with a difference. Our PADI Dive Center team strives for excellence and we guarantee you some of the best diving our island has to offer. Our divemasters and instructors have many years of diving experience around the island and are amongst the most experienced dive guides on the island. We specialize in small groups for more personalised dive experiences rather than catering for the masses. Our Reef To See Dive and Snorkel Adventures include guided scuba dives to Rarotonga's best dive sites, PADI dive courses, intro dives, guided outer reef snorkel trips and freediving trips.

On land, our Island Way Adventures include Cook Islands Dance and Drum Lessons for small and bigger groups and Raemaru Mountain Treks.

To explore Rarotonga on your own, you can rent everything you need to explore the island from our Adventure Hire fleet: scooters, bicycles, kayaks, snorkel gear and bodyboards.

I made contact with Patrick prior to arriving in Rarotonga to set up some diving and was impressed by the information he provided and ease of communication. I have my dive certificate and did many dives as a teen and in my 20's, but very little in the last 10 years. My husband has never dived before so it was... More

I rate this the best dive set-up on Raro, by far. I've been diving here for 15 years. Dive operators Patrick and Sean love their diving and that's the key.

My wife and I were recently diving with Patrick at Adventure Cook Islands and I couldn't recommend him enough.

If you do your research carefully, you'll end up with Patrick at Adventure Cook Islands. He's the most experienced diver on Rarotonga and I'm glad that I did my PADI certification with him. He substantiated the theory part with his extensive knowledge which allowed me to breeze through the final quiz. The dives were nothing short of spectacular and since... More
