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.
Fun and entertainment
This activity was an amazing relaxing event for us on our visit to Rarotonga. Even before we set foot on the boat we were entertained by the very talented, hilarious and energetic crew members who sang songs and performed drumming items and cracked lots of jokes. A special mention for Captain WiWi and Captain White Chocolate. Such funny, talented and amazing guys. There were lots of fish to see in the lagoon, including a mermaid who swam under our glass bottom boat. The barbeque and entertainment on the island were very memorable and we enjoyed the non stop fun and hilarity. This trip is a must, doesn't matter if you don't swim, you will enjoy it as much as those who do. Top marks Captain Tama and your wonderful crew.

Informative. Fun. And generally bloody good
Did the captain Tamas half day snorkeling bbq. Very helpful, funny, cheeky and informative staff. Snorkeling was amazing with clear blue water and so many fish they get in the way!! The boys in the crew kept us entertained with cheeky banter and beautiful rarotongan songs on the ukulele. The bbq was great with tuna steaks, sausages and amazing paw paw salad. The on island entertainment was a little history of the coconut tree with demonstrations of climbing a 40ft tree, husking it and how to make the cream. Really enjoyable trip and a pretty good price. Highly recommend

Fantastic Day out on the lagoon
Captain Cupcake and White Chocolate were great on our cruise. Love the info about the formation of the lagoon. They also make sure to keep the lagoon clean by drove back out to pick up trash they saw on our way back. 100% recommend for anyone visiting Rarotonga.

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.
