Spend some time feeding the fish, then climb back on the boat and make your way to Motu Koromiri. Go ashore for a Raro-style fresh fish barbecue, accompanied by tropical fruit and salad. Take in a Pareu- (sarong)-tying show and demonstration on how to harvest and husk coconuts.  Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel in Avarua after 4 hours.

What an amazing trip - lots of snorkelling, wonderful lunch on a remote iland, lots of bad jokes, and a sarong tying demo. Observed a fella climbing a coconut tree in literally 2 seconds to get a cocunt.Captain Nice and Captaian can't remember his name, were wonderful. Truely amazing! Fully recommend it.

Highly enjoyable - great fun crew, amazing water, huge amounts of food, and a beautiful beach. Hard to not have a good time. Antonia in the office is a gem!
Just wish there was more snorkeling time, and maybe some tips about where to go for the best experience.

Excellent value for money
Aug 2021
Fantastic friendly and FUNNY crew! A must do for a stay in Rarotonga. After the news of the level 4 lockdown in NZ, these guys were amazing- more boats to ensure social distancing, masks and regular hand sanitizer. The day was great, snorkeling, BBQ and show. The food was of a high quality and definitely felt like great value for money. I would highly recommend this outing to young and old. The snorkeling could have been longer but otherwise a full 10/10.

Excellent Activity
Fabulous time, you can be very proud of your staff they absolutely were wonderful hosts and gave us a very relaxed, wonderful day. Food for lunch was delicious and certainly plenty of it. Snorkelling was fabulous.
My only suggestion is that you don’t use the pool noodles in the lagoon for snorkelling as they were all degraded and tiny pieces of plastic were breaking off them going into the marine environment. If floatation device needed use life jackets or hard float boards,

It was a great day and we had a blast with the crew of Captain Tama . They made sure that we were all smiles all day long. It started with a local band welcome which was beautiful followed by our journey to the middle of the ocean. Great hosts, yummy island lunch and the coconut show was informative, rich with history and hilarious . We highly recommend Captain Tama’s if you are in for a fun day . Thanks

Always a blast going on Captain Tamas Lagoon cruise. No matter how many times my family and I go on the cruise, its amazing every time. The glass bottom is beautiful. The pareu and coconut show are always fun to listen to and be apart of. The food is always delicious and the crew are always very warm and inviting.
