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.
SUPER LAGOON CRUISE
The day was overcast but this didnt detract from the cruise. The music on board was native to Raro, and interesting. Some were not able to snorkel, but you could either get in the water and look through your goggles at the fish below, or through the glass bottom of the boat. Later, as we landed at the beach on the Island, a delicious lunch was waiting. BBQ fish, bananas, onions and sausages, plus a variety of salads. Plenty of food for all. After lunch a coconut husking demonstration and sarong tying demonstration on two models from the audience. Great day out.
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!
Everything was super easy from booking the tour, checking in, getting snorkel gear that fit etc. The staff were all super friendly - just like family, they were hilarious. You go for the snorkeling but it's the team that make you want to come back. I'm not a strong swimmer but I felt completely at ease the whole time I was in the water, they have a couple of the team members stay in the boat to watch over those in the water, while there was team members in the water. They also have metal tables in the water for you to stand up on. The water was so clear and the fish abundant, we were lucky enough to see one of the local eels!! I recommend taking an underwater camera if you can!
TOP TEN BUCKET LIST ACTIVITY
From the moment we stepped onto the boat, we had the most amazing friendly funny crew. Playing drums and singing till we stopped for a snorkel. The fish were incredible and the glass bottom boat was an unreal experience. We learnt so much about everything. Will def go back the lunch was fabulous. 10 out of 10 for the crew the scenery the crystal clear water.
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.
