The Cook Islands are renowned for their prestine white sandy beaches, lush green mountainous terrain and warm tropical climate. The best way to take in this landscape is from the sea, so come for a sail on the only surveyed charter yacht in Rarotonga. On the cruise you may see whales,sharks or turtles (seasonal).Looking for fun and adventure come with us on the 58ft yacht Southern Cross and we can take you sailing on the deep blue waters of this island paradise.We can cater for groups up to 25. Private charters can also be arranged.(hen, stag, wedding, corporate).Outer island charters also available.

We had one of our favourite fish meals on the Island here. The game fish Trio main course was amazing! Relaxed atmosphere and environment looking out over the lagoon.
