Cherish forever
Jul 2021 • Family
We booked in 7 family members, youngest 9yrs oldest late 60s, into the Sunrise Tour with Charlotte.
The tour was absolutely amazing!
As a family we have been to a lot of tropical islands and done many tours but this was the first time we have even seen so many happy turtles in their natural environment. It was very unique.
Charlotte and her guides were professional. We were well looked after in our family group and at no point did I feel unsafe.
My 9yr daughters favourite part was being guided through the deeper water and the young guide took time with her to grow her confidence, I was very impressed. If you don’t like deep water there is plenty of things to see including lots of turtles in the shallow parts. Water was warm / crisp in July, we all wore swim suits my daughter was in a spring wetsuit.
Group vote was definitely wanting to do it again and best part was receiving the photos a couple of weeks later. Charlotte knows how to capture special moments we will all cherish forever.

Gorgeous snorkeling trip out to swim with turtles that did not disappoint. Charlotte and her father were super friendly and accommodating with the various levels of experience and fitness in our group, and managed to get everyone out swimming, even those who were not planning to get wet! And they all loved it. Excellent photos came through about a month later.

A memory to cherish for a lifetime
Jun 2021
Don't miss this if you are in Raro. Safe for all ages and skill levels, no matter if you are a newbie or a freediver, you'll get an experience you'll remember a lifetime.

My tip for travellers: don't worry about your go pro, just enjoy your dive as Charlotte will take unparalleled shots and you'll just discard your own footage :)

Great family experience
Great service by Charlotte and her team. We did private turtle tour with our 11 year old daughter. It was an amazing experience for her. She is very confident in the water but the conditions were some calm less experienced children would be fine.

We saw multiple turtles with 2 coming right up to the surface to us. We got some great pics so can’t wait for Charlotte’s amazing pics of the trip.

Charlotte and her team are super friendly and amazing free divers which helps with attracting turtles and the photography

We would highly recommend this

If there is one activity you must do whilst in the beautiful Cook Islands then it is definitely the turtle tour and photos with Charlotte Piho. Charlotte has a way of capturing the most stunning shots both in and out of the water. The highlight is definitely swimming with the turtles, they are so graceful amd peaceful. You’ll come away from this experience with some amazing photo memories also. Thank you Charlotte for the amazing experience you have created.

Turtle Tour with Charlotte
We had heard about Charlotte's Turtle Tour ages ago, we thought about going on the tour but kept putting it off, until a work colleague told us about her experience on the tour. With 2 weeks left in Raroronga we booked a tour. Better late than never... We met Charlotte and her team at the lagoon. We were more nervous about the photo shoot than the turtle tour in the passage. Charlotte is a very professional photograher who is a natural with her camera and her interaction with us made us feel comfortable and relaxed while she clicked away.
Onwards to the swim with the turtles. This part of the tour was my favourite. We are all confident swimmers and to see so many 🐢 straight away was awesome! Charlotte with camera in hand took some amazing shots of all of us swimming and diving with the turtles. We would have seen at least 15 turtles! Highly recommend Charlotte and her team to capture your family photos and swimming with the turtles.

Gosh I love your family. Thank you so much for this lovely review - made me laugh that you were so nervous when you are all naturally spectacular to photograph. I will treasure my time with your family dearly. You really brought out all the turtle magic. Stay safe and I hope we cross paths again x much love Charlotte
