Be entertained by Captain Tama’s and his crew on this once in a lifetime, most unforgettable experience. Watch the magical ocean through the glass bottomed boat, listen to island stories with typical Cook Island humour.
Leap oﬀ the boat, snorkel and meet the reef fish up close and personal. Or chill out and ﬂoat above the coral paradise.
After snorkelling the crew will entertain you with hilarious coconut husking demo’s as well as how to shimmy up a coconut tree. Their demonstration of 100 ways to tie a sarong will have you in stitches.
Captain Tama’s and his entertaining crew have been sharing their tropical island playground with visitors since 1992 on their award-winning Muri Lagoon cruise.
Bring… towels, swim gear, sunscreen and camera’s… we’ll take care of everything else.
BEST ACTIVITY WE DID IN RAROTONGA
Absolutely loved Captain Tama’s. From the moment we arrived until the transfer dropped us back at our resort, the staff all seemed to be having fun and enjoying their jobs. The snorkelling was great and the BBQ was really well done. The highlight of the day for us was probably the entertainment once you arrive on the island, the crew sing a few songs including one they’ve made up themselves. Then Captain Fantastic did a brilliant show, that man deserves a raise. Put this down as a must do while in Rarotonga.
SWIMMING WITH THE FISH
Captain Tamas Lagoon Cruise was awesome. Fantastic very friendly staff, loved the singing !! We were able to view fish from either staying on board looking through a glass bottom boat or there was the option of getting into the water and snorkelling. After the experience of snorkelling we then headed to an island for a BBQ lunch, very scrummy, heaps of buffet food to choose from. Entertainment followed, and then a swim in the lagoon. Very enjoyable day.:-)
WHAT AN EXPERIENCE
We arrived with drumming sounds in the back. Instructions received were clear. The trip on the bottomless boat was full of jokes, fun and laughter with captain lollipop. The snorkeling was excellent. Lunch on the white beach was delicious and captain fabulous made the entertainment more eventful. We loved the experience and will recommend it to anyone visiting the island.
Captain Tama's makes every effort to ensure our impact on the environment is as small as possible, we even have a composting toilet on the motu and we always keep our boats regularly serviced. We always make sure all the scraps from the BBQ lunch go to our pigs and dogs so nothing is wasted!
Ra’ui is the traditional environment protection system that involves traditional leaders banning the harvesting of marine resources in designated areas. Traditionally, it was imposed by the chief of the tribe banning the harvesting of food resources for a set period of time to enable stocks to increase.
The main purpose of the ra’ui is to help protect the marine environment and to contribute towards an increase in marine life for present and future generations. There are 12 ra’ui areas in Rarotonga including Tikioki, where Captain Tama's Lagoon Cruizes set up its marine site in 1992.
