Would highly recommend! My wife and I went on our honeymoon and are so glad we booked these tours. On the Turtle tour, we saw about 15 turtles and 20 mantarays. The night SUP is also a great experience!

The week we were in Rarotonga was pretty windy with fishing and diving canceled. Decided to try a sea scooter experience instead. Still pretty choppy seas but the crew made sure we were safe and still having fun. Was a little bit apprehensive about the...More

Really mind blowing to experience such a huge body of water and the creatures it holds. Amazing to have the turtles swimming around us. Staff were energetic, fun and knowledgeable. They were happy to become photographers for those with underwater cameras. The staff skills were...More
