Undoubtedly one of the best ways to explore the waters of Rarotonga, Captain Tama’s Lagoon Cruizes depart daily from 11am from the beaches of Muri. The BBQ Lagoon Cruise will take you from the pristine beachfront to Rarotonga’s vibrant marine reserve in a glass bottom boat. Admire the elegance and grace of the marine life from the comfort of the boat, or take your choice of provided snorkeling gear to meet the fish up close and personal.
The marine reserve is home to giant clams, schools of colourful fish, and bright, geometric star fish. Swim underneath the boat to wave at those staying dry, or simply lie flat on your stomach on the water’s surface and take it all in. The crew also provide healthy fish food, meaning you can toss some flakes to the fish and watch them feed in a frenzy.
After snorkeling, the crew give a hilarious coconut husking show, alongside 100 ways to tie a sarong demonstration, guaranteed to have you in stitches. All the laughing and swimming is sure to bring out your appetite, meaning the beach BBQ arrives at the perfect time. Feast on delicious, BBQed fish, sourced locally; fresh, delicious snacks and salads; and even a fabulous fried banana.
