If you dont do Captain Tamas you will be missing out!! Had an amazing time with beautiful food, tonnes of laughs and some great knowledge on the many uses of coconut. One thing to note before booking with captain tamas. If you dont understand polynesian humour and are easily offended by jokes then grow a thick skin first. Your sour... More

Did a snorkel trip with them but unfortunately they took us to the same spot our resort took us the day before. Lessoned learned. They had fun on the boat and kept us entertained. Being the only Aussies on board I learnt something, Kiwi's call Islanders coconuts. I thought only we did that. On the island they cooked some tuna... More

I booked online for the combined cruise and highland paradise night. Got confirmation of booking however starting times were not stated anywhere. Looked on TripAdvisor and saw that the start time was 11am. Arrived at 10.58 to see the boat halfway down the lagoon. Apparently they did not check who was booked in for the day and left when they...

Oh so sorry you missed the boat. Our departure is well documented as being 11am but everyone should arrive 30 minutes before departure and check-in with staff. Unfortunately, you did neither and considering that you had booked for the 2 days prior to this particular day and did not turn up on either day the crew assumed that you were... More

Very well run tour, the staff are friendly and funny. The place where you stop for snorkelling has alot of colourful fish. The lunch and entertainment were very good! Well worth doing if visiting Rarotonga.

Captain Tama's is certainty good value for money. There was a live drumming and singing while we waited before we departed. We had plenty of time for snorkelling, and if you didn't want to swim, the guides did fish feeding under the glass bottom boats. The BBQ lunch on the island was delicious, and really filling. The coconut and pareo... More

Maybe 10 years ago it was different but to be honest all the coral or most of it was dead in the area where they took us snorkelling and ppl were standing over it there were not many fish. The bottom glass boat has no point since you dont see much there but sand or dead pieces of coral. The... More
