We did a snorkelling trip on the wreck of the SS Matai with Adventure Cook Islands, and then snorkelled the reef off Trader Jacks. great fun, interesting with lots of fish to see. We'd have done more if we'd had time. Only six people on the trip and no dive gear - perfect!

This was our 3rd trip to Rarotonga since 2007 and our first time renting a bike from Adventure Cook Islands. By far the best bike we have ever rented.

I enquired on line and Patrick got back to me within 24 hours - it was great to know we were set with the bike before we arrived. Sean delivered the bike at the agreed time (he was even a bit earlier) and we realized we knew him as one of the drummers from Highland Paradise Show that we saw in October 2012.
Sean and Patrick are a great team. They have a wide range of bikes - very competitve prices and I chose a "Comfy Bike" which was really, really comfy. I ride a mountain bike in Australia and wanted something different knowing there are no hills and the only thing to deal with is the direction of the wind. We have friends travelling to Raro in a few months and we will be telling them to rent from Sean and Patrick! Thanks guys - we had a great 2 weeks on the bike! We'll be back in a couple of years and will definitely rebook! Many thanks, Kathy

I did a PADI open water with Patrick while I was staying on Rarotonga. I really enjoyed that the first dip dives/exercises were held in the lagoon where you can actually see something interesting, instead of a pool. For the real dives we went out on the boat just off the reef into these amazing deep blue but crystal clear waters. I liked that we loaded all the gear right into the boat while on land or loaded at the loading zone in the water (I dived with another company the week later where we walked the gear to the anchored boat). We saw corals, flat fish, morays, parrot fish and many other colorful species!

I had Patrick as my tutor. His instructions were really clear and this made the actual SCUBA diving part of the experience awesome! Will definitely return to Adventure Cook Islands - Reef to See on future trips to the Cook Islands! Highly recommended.

first time of my life diving while I decided to get the PADI certification. Together with Patrick I always felt safe. He is an excellent instructor. I had fun, great dives and all of the team are very friendly. I can give an advice for Reef to See all who went diving on Rarotonga. Thx again for the great time I had together with you!
