Captain Tamas cruise was such an amazing experience. Almost my highlight of my time in the beautiful Rarotonga. It was so funny we are still talking about their jokes now. The snorkeling was also amazing and getting to see the turtle.

The tour was hilarious, snorkeling was great. Lunch was amazing - would definitely come back!! Would recommend wearing sunscreen for sure! We didn't think we'd get burnt because it wasn't super hot but we sure did!

All the brochures were 100% correct, hilarious crew, tasty food, and the snorkelling was the best in the Cook Islands.

Sorry no bathroom on the boat, one before you board the boat for snorkelling and one on the motu where we stop for lunch after the snorkelling.
