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.

We went diving six times (three double tank dives) with Sean and Patrick and enjoyed every single minute! They are highly professional, everything is perfectly organized and at the same time it's a very familiar atmosphere (i.e. small groups). The equipment is very good and well maintained. We saw everything from sharks, turtles, eagle rays, moray eels, barracudas ... If... More

I did my PADI open water course here over three days in February. Patrick is a terrific instructor - patient and careful but also really good fun. There was a lady in our group of three doing the course who was very nervous and Patrick was really good with her, so if you are a little bit nervous about doing... More

We have just completed a stay in the Cook Islands and had the pleasure of doing 18 dives with Patrick and crew. Patrick went above and beyond to ensure the dives were the the best and equal to our experience level. I guess the best recommendation I can give is that we will return to dive with him next year.

Without doubt this is now the best dive set-up in Rarotonga. I have been diving here on seven separate longish stays since 1993: for both experienced divers and for those wanting to taking beginning or more advanced courses, I can recommend Patrick and Sean as the place to go first.

I took the open water diver course run by Patrick and had a really good time! The diving is beautiful with coral, turtles, eagle rays and many fish to see. Patrick was a great teacher and made me feel totally at ease as I was a little nervous to begin with. Always felt safe and comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend the... More

I made the Open Water Diving Course from PADI and it was great. I had private lessons and because the guide Patrick was German it was in Englisch and German, so very good for me. The reef there is fantastic with sharks, turtles and heaps of other fish. I absolutely recommend this spot with this dive centre for everybody.

Me and a friend took the open water scuba diving course with Patrick from Adventure Cook Islands and it was absolutely fantastic! We were recommended by another instructor who had retired and had been previously teaching for 40 plus years, and his advice was sound. Patrick was professional and thorough with his teaching. Although we were both beginners and nervous... More

Had a great time with Sean and Patrick from Adventure Cook Islands. They know the great dive spots, saw loads of fish, turtles, reef sharks, barracuda, and a school of tuna at the drop off. Superb diving with a fun team, see you next year guys we'll be back again.
