Adventure Cook Islands is Rarotonga's Dive and Adventure Specialist with a difference. Our PADI Dive Center team strives for excellence and we guarantee you some of the best diving our island has to offer. Our divemasters and instructors have many years of diving experience around the island and are amongst the most experienced dive guides on the island. We specialize in small groups for more personalised dive experiences rather than catering for the masses. Our Reef To See Dive and Snorkel Adventures include guided scuba dives to Rarotonga's best dive sites, PADI dive courses, intro dives, guided outer reef snorkel trips and freediving trips. On land, our Island Way Adventures include Cook Islands Dance and Drum Lessons for small and bigger groups and Raemaru Mountain Treks. To explore Rarotonga on your own, you can rent everything you need to explore the island from our Adventure Hire fleet: scooters, bicycles, kayaks, snorkel gear and bodyboards.

A fellow holiday maker & I hired 2 bikes (cycles not motorbikes) and rode the 32km around the island. It was very easy riding and achieved in around 2 hours with a few breaks. The team at Adventure Cook Islands were very helpful. We were very impressed at how reliable our bikes were. Brakes were good and the gears were... More

Regarding the "butt" (un)friendliness of Rarotonga's roads - sorry to hear that you got reminded of your buttocks the next day. Maybe next time you should... More

This was a well organised trip to a couple of great locations. Patrick, our guide was great at finding turtles and other fish. I would recommend this trip to those who are good swimmers and not scared of outer reef snorkelling.

If you are looking to book a dive trip look no further! My son and I did four dives after a 5 year break so wanted a bit of a refresher dive initially.

Thanks to Patrick I had an incredible snorkel outside the reef and saw numerous turtles and a couple of stunning eagle rays. I realise there is a degree of luck about what you can see, but i had emailed Patrick and he was great at replying with detailed information, and then when conditions were just right and a spot was...

I contacted all the dive shops on the island prior to heading over as i was just after a dive package for myself as a already qualified diver. Patrick at Reef to See was by far the most responsive and was able to commit to taking just me out if no other divers were booked on (which turned out the... More

We booked kayaks for 3 days and Shawn brought them to us, but then also drove us up to a point on Muir lagoon, so we wouldn't have to kayak there and back! We are experienced kayakers, but Shawn gave us the local knowledge that helped us when the currents came up. It was such a great time around the... More

Did a 2 dive trip with Patrick one afternoon. No hassles, all went really well. Well prepared with excellent equipment. The boat he used was good and he tailored what we did to me (as it happened I was the only person booked in that afternoons so a big bonus for me). I have done about 150 dives so it... More
