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.

Did my scuba diver license here, could not have chosen not wisely. Patrick took all the time necessary to prepare me and take my fears of the deep water. The equipment is very well maintained and the staff is just lovely to be with. Would recommend this place to everyone!

TL:DR: Amazing! Great dive masters, Patrick and Sean are fantastic, highly recommend. Never felt like a number, great service. Long version: Diving in new places with dive masters you don't already know can be a bit of a mix bag, especially in the Pacific. I have done a lot of diving in the Solomon Islands and a little bit in... More

April 2015 completed Advance Open Water course with Adventure Cook Islands. Patrick was the best. Very Patient, Knowledgeable, professional and personable. Patrick was so helpful when I was setting up for the Padi e-learning course prior to my visit to the Cook Islands for my open water sessions. You want a great experience diving at Rarotanga.

In March 2015 I did my scuba diving license with Patrick. He is a very professional operator, very knowledgeable and doesn’t cut any corners. Importantly he is also entertaining and funny, keeping you at ease throughout all part of the scuba license course and tests. Highly recommended.

I am a (relatively) regular visitor to the Cook Islands and diving with Patrick is always a highlight of my visit... You could not ask for a more knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional and efficient guide. Whether you are - like my partner - taking a PADI course or you are a more experienced diver you get the same level of service... More

Rain or shine the diving with Patrick at Reef To See was always excellent. Over a six week period we made more than twenty dives and Patrick managed to make every dive unique and exciting. Reef To See has first class equipment and it is always kept in tip top condition. We also rented a scooter from Adventure Cook Island... More

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.
