BBQ Lagoon Cruise

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.

Your Boat Experience

You will be part of a natural aquarium, myriads of colourful fish and marine life including a moray eel, giant clams, giant trevellay, angel fish, butterfly fish, convict surgeon fish and trigger fish. Sometimes turtles visit the lagoon, this might be your day!


Muri beach offers beautiful clear, shallow water – so it’s ideal snorkelling fun for everyone, from beginners to advanced and if you can’t, don’t worry, we’ll teach you. It’s easy! It’s such a great way to experience the variety of tropical fish and coral. Just relax and float on the water. Anyone over the age of 6 can safely snorkel these waters; while those under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

All Equipment Included

We provide the masks and snorkels so you can float across the water; observing the magic of the tropical marine reserve. We also have some fins you can use if you want to get around a little faster. And of course, life jackets and other floatation devices are on hand for additional comfort and safety.

What's for lunch

The half day Muri Lagoon cruise includes a scrumptious, fresh fish BBQ lunch. After your snorkel we will head to a small island in the lagoon to enjoy a delicious fresh fish BBQ which includes: Fish cooked “Raro style” over an open fire, BBQ bananas (the captains speciality), potato salad, coleslaw, delicious paw paw salad, breadfruit salad mixed with gluten free mayo. Accompanied by seasonal fruits and crisp French bread.
