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 am very grateful to Patrick for introducing me to diving... Did the lagoon dive in the morning and the boat dive in the afternoon... 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!

This was our 3rd trip to Rarotonga since 2007 and our first time renting a bike from Adventure Cook Islands. By far the best bike we have ever rented. I enquired on line and Patrick got back to me within 24 hours - it was great to know we were set with the bike before we arrived. Sean delivered the... More

I did a PADI open water with Patrick while I was staying on Rarotonga. I really enjoyed that the first dip dives/exercises were held in the lagoon where you can actually see something interesting, instead of a pool. For the real dives we went out on the boat just off the reef into these amazing deep blue but crystal clear... More

I had Patrick as my tutor. His instructions were really clear and this made the actual SCUBA diving part of the experience awesome! Will definitely return to Adventure Cook Islands - Reef to See on future trips to the Cook Islands! Highly recommended.
