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.
These guys are amazing!
We're a varied lot. My husband, myself, our disabled son and my 84 year-old mother. Needless to say, probably not the easiest group to satisfy with our wide range of ages, abilities, and tastes. However, these guys are amazing! Ryan never missed a single part of it - wheelchair and all! Watching these awesome guys pick him up in the wheelchair and carry him out to the boat - no fuss, no bother. As if they did it every day (and I know they don't.) Ryan was every bit a part of the whole day thanks to a dedicated, awesome, caring crew who obviously love their job. We have traveled extensively, and this experience stands head and shoulders proudly among some of the best experiences in the world - you should be very proud! Only wish I could give a 100 star review - they would get all that and more. Thank you guys for creating an environment to help a young fellow do something normal, in a world where these experiences are all too hard to come by. S.Nixon
Best entertainment on the Island. Caring crew with safety of passengers at top of agenda, Captain Tama has a high agenda that all passengers will be well catered for not only providing a meal but also providing entertainment at a high level of professional standard. Alison Gray.
Absolutely wonderful experience
We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Captain Tama’s crew. The day catered for all age groups and abilities and the team were very safety conscious and entertaining. The snorkelling was amazing and we loved the delicious BBQ feast and slice of Rarotongan life that we was generously shared. Highly recommend to all who visit your beautiful 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.
