The day we chose to do Captain Tama's Cruise it was raining, we were hesitant to go due to the weather however we did.. The entertainment was the best, these guys are a total crack up. When we stopped to jump into the water the rain had stopped, the snorkeling was great and my son also joined in with his life jacket around him floating in the water. He really loved this.. The food back on the island was yum and the entertainment again was a crack up. Totally recommend these guys.

If you want to relax, listen to the crew playing and singing, do some snorkelling and have lunch and entertainment provided then go along for this experience. Laughed so much my sides hurt. These guys (and gal) were brilliant.

Capt Tama located on Raritonga in the Cook islands (autonomous island group associated with New Zealand) offers various excursions in their lagoons with very good snorkling, a fun lunch on their private motu (island) and some local entertainment, all for less than half what you pay your cruise ship if using their excursions.
They pick you up from the cruise dock or hotel, provide snorkel gear if needed and load you in simple boats holding up to 20 or so. Boats have partial glass bottoms for viewing while going the 3kms to the lagoon the prefer.
You have 45 mins to an hour of easy drift snorkling, pretty much on your own. Water is shallow, about 3 mtrs with scattered coral and rock formations and lots of fish, small to medium and nothing threatening. Water temp was moderate, snorkel shirt recommended for temp and sun control. Flippets optional as you pretty much against the current away from the boat and then drifted back towards it with current.
Then over to the island for lunch of freshly caught grilled tuna, fresh fruit and sides and some fun entertainment from the crew. Swimming off the beach or walking through the vegetation available before returning across the lagoon to buses back to starting point.
Crew on boats and island were friendly and helpful, food was fine and overall experience excellent. Would do it again if we ever get back here.

If you want laughs and entertainment with the added bonus of great food and beautiful sights you need to book this. Our crew was amazing had us laughing the moment we got there to the moment we left. Our guide was especially awesome and even helped us with our 2 kids. The day we spent with them was one of the best days we spent on the island. The food was very basic but delicious.what a great day thanks heaps guys :)
