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.
Thank you so much for the awesome tour. Not only were the views were to die for, snorkeling was being free with the elements, lunch was tremendously scrumptious but the Kaimahi were exceptional. The guys not only looked after, assisted and ensured we were alright but they were also very humorous and entertaining. It is these guys who will take this hikoi a long way. Captain Tama, you have taonga / pearls / tangata whose loyalty is to their mahi and this is very rare to fine these days. Highly recommend to my workforce whanau and friends.
My family and I loved our day so much. Honestly had the best time, the boat ride, the hosting, the swimming, the Kai, the show and playing volley ball top notch. Everything was mean and we think you guys should put the price up because that was so cheap for everything we got.
Now that we have arrived home in Aotearoa I have some time to leave some comments. Myself and my family (4 adults 2 young kids) thoroughly enjoyed our Captain Tama's experience. The enthusiasm of the Captains, the detail in the instructions, the food, the whole experience was 5 star. We had a great time. Thanks so much, will be back again next time for sure.
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.
