Captain Tama's was such a highlight! We loved the snorkelling and saw the most amazing fish. After snorkelling we had a yummy lunch and we're treated to an informative and entertaining afternoon. A must do in Rarotonga 😊

Captain Tamas was the highlight of my trip!!! The guides are so cool and make you feel really comfortable and laugh a lot. They know what they are talking about but they also really care about the islands so they are genuine about the whole thing. I got way more than I expected. The lunch was so satisfying after snorkelling... More

If you are heading to Rarotonga, this is a must. The glass bottom boat, for those that dont want to get wet the staff will bring the display to you. But i recommend getting wet, get in amongst the fish and enjoy the sights. Once you finished with swimming with the fish head to the Island for a great feed... More

A good day out with great hosts who like a bit of fun, and are also pretty good on the instruments. Nice cruise in the lagoon, plenty of time for snorkelling and plenty of fish to see. Lunch provided on one of the islands was very good with plenty for seconds if you wanted, finished off with a short show.... More

If you like snorkeling (around one hour) this is for you, such great underwater environment in the Raratonga's lagoon. Then on the largest island a nice lunch and a small cultural show explaining all about coconut tree (the tree of life for local people) and how to properly wear a Pareo (for both ladies and gentlemen). An activity for everyone... More

Great fun day out snorkelling, lunch and small cultural show. They take you out snorkelling for an hour then back to the island for a buffet lunch and show, it's great fun and a lovely day out (approx 4 hrs).
