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.
Such a great excursion, I thought when I saw the amount of people it was going to be chaos, but it was so well organised and once on our boat we felt looked after and we had a great day out. Lunch was good portion buffet and delicious, the show was next level hilarious. Highly recommend, worth every cent!!!! Loved our Captains - Captain Sharky and Captain Sweet As you are the best!!!!!!!
A must do whilst in Rarotonga
Absolutely fun day!! Awesome staff at Captain Tama’s, great vibe and atmosphere all day long. Really awesome BBQ is part of the experience as well as some other activities on the island during lunch. The snorkeling was pretty cool!! We saw some massive fish, huge clams, and better yet a turtle whilst on the boat!! 100% recommend going on Captain Tama’s Lagoon Cruise!!
Best. Tour. Ever.
Literally everyone told us to book this tour & they were not wrong! I laughed until I couldn't breathe at the show 😂 it was so hilarious!! I'm laughing now just thinking about it 😆 On the boats the banter was awesome!! 🤩Our Captains - Captain Sharkey & Captain Cupcake were amazing! They were so funny but also great at keeping everyone safe. The snorkeling was epic. This tour is for everyone, really advanced or total newbie. They cater for everyone & keep everyone safe while having a good time. It's 100% the absolute number one thing to do in Rarotonga, it was the highlight of our holiday!!
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.
