Owner description: 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.

I had the most wonderful time scuba diving on Rarotonga! There were no other guests at the time but I still got to dive as many times as I wanted. The equipment and the boat were good and service was very friendly. Thank you!

Kia Orana ekeskine, Meitaki maata for writing a review about our operation and the dives that you did with us, I am glad we could satisfy your needs. I think I will always remember your last dive with us when the dozen whitetip reef sharks were killing one of their own, that was a very special dive... Kind regards, Patrick More

The best guys on the island for a course. A lot of fun, very safe, and good quality gear. Really enjoyed Patrick, he was very flexible in giving us the best dates. 3 of us completed course together. Good boat and knowledge of local area. Saw giant turtle, eels, rays and shark as part of our training.

We dove with Sean and Patrick for 6 days. They made sure the dives were interesting and in line with the best conditions on the day. They know a great variety of different dives sites, are knowledgeable about the area, the dive sites and the sea life. They'll cater to all levels and their groups are small. Whether you go... More

Fantastic dive with amazing fish and coral, didn't take long in boat to get to dive site. Double tank dive with hot drink available in between dives. Lovely

Thanks so much to Patrick, the fantastic dive operator and owner of "Reef to See". I hadn't dived in 10 years and Patrick was very encouraging, reminding me of all the useful hints and tips. We did two boat dives - my first tipping in backwards which was fun! Loved all the tropical fish, white-tipped reef shark, ghost coral, etc.... More

I found the experience so amazing that I did the boat dive again a few days later. I felt very safe with Patrick, who is not only very professional but also very friendly and very... More

I went to 2 fun dives of 2 days with Patrick. Patrick took me to various aspects of the sea around Cook Islands ... clear water on the white sand bottom, forest of mushroom shaped corals, wrecks, etc. It was a great experience.

Went for 2 tank dives with patrick. Was a great experience from the beginning. I went around all the dive shops on the island to sus them out first. Adventure cookislands was by far the most approachable. They were keen to find out what i wanted to do and were less concerned with telling me what i wanted to do.... More

We did a snorkelling trip on the wreck of the SS Matai with Adventure Cook Islands, and then snorkelled the reef off Trader Jacks. great fun, interesting with lots of fish to see. We'd have done more if we'd had time. Only six people on the trip and no dive gear - perfect!
