We had a great time for the entire duration: the crew are multi-talented and kept us entertained with fun songs, clever ukulele playing and excellent drumming. The food was really nice with plenty of variety to suit everyone. And the coconut show was a hoot! The crew were very friendly and helpful, with never a dull moment. I would highly recommend this tour. Not only was it fun and well organised, it was informative too! Well worth the time.

Great half day tour with a fun crew. We went out into the lagoon for snorkeling. For those of us who don’t snorkel there are cages you can stand on so you’re only knee deep in the water I’m not very good in the water but I actually felt quite safe and the staff from the boats looked out for me and made sure I didn’t get into trouble. They also offered to look after the children so the parents could snorkel which was great. The lunch on the island was just lovely and filling. The boys got some of the customers up for demonstrating of how to tie a sarong and how to climb a coconut tree which was very funny.
I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting the Cook Islands

This was a 10/10 experience and so worth it! I would pay double for what we got. Not only did the tour guides keep the energy throughout the day, they let us know the itinerary of the day and we’re constantly letting us know what was happening next etc!

We learnt about how to care for the reef and about the islands and their importance to the indigenous people.

We snorkelled and they were great with kids as well! We then went to a beach and enjoyed a cultural performance and watched them climb coconut trees and learnt how to open one too! We also had the most AMAZING Kai!

Legit would go again purely for the feed. It was my best meal I had on the island.

All in all - highly recommend. Worth it!!! We went in august and saw some whales at that time of year also.

Thank you Koka Lagoon! We’ll be back for sure.

We were undecided if visiting Muri lagoon by ourselves with kayak or join a lagoon cruise. There are a couple of companies that offer lagoon cruise with snorkeling and lunch on a motu (same price, same show). At the end we decided for Koka Lagoon, because they leave early at 10am. We were happy with the cruise and the staff was very professional and funny. If you're not a party people or you are a reserved and shy person, you can just relax on the beach after lunch, while the Koka guys conduct their beautiful show. A well worth half day tour to explore the beautiful Muri Lagoon.

We took a Koka Lagoon Cruise on a friend’s recommendation and are so glad we did. We had such a fun day exploring the beauty of lagoon and Cook Island culture. The guides are awesome and the way they care for the conservation of the lagoon is really special to see. What we enjoyed most was listening to them jamming the ukulele and drums. Left feeling uplifted with big smiles. Meitaki ma’ata Koka Cruises!

I absolutely recommend Koka Lagoon Cruise as a must do while in Rarotonga 🤩 Thank you to all the boys on both boats for making our day so special. We are a family of 7 with kids ranging from 4yrs-17. All of them loved swimming with the fish, especially the little ones. Lifetime memories created & the boys on the boat were so helpful with everyone. Music played by the boys from start to finish, gives tourists the ultimate island experience with entertainment & food.
Thank you to all the boys at Koka for our amazing day 🤩🥰

I have been to Raro before and have done a lagoon cruise so wouldn't have done again, except I had my neice with me and the experiences is something all kids going to Raro should experience. The resort staff recommended Koka Cruise.
Linlee had a wonderful time. She wass filled with lots of questions. The staff were outstanding and Linlee has come back giving all the family so much information, she especially liked telling the story of the guy climbing the coconut tree and staying he was going to swing across to the other tree. She even had the "Are you crazy?" in the same tone of voice. She loved sitting up with the drummers in the sing along coming back.
Thanks for make it such a lovely day.

This trip was a highlight for us. As previous reviewers have said, the crew, all captains😁, provided high energy entertainment from start to finish. With Ukuleles and buckets for drums they sang some old classics and local music from before setting off, until we returned to the beach. The snorkelling was great with lots of big fish and live clams to see. The bbq was good and stories about the importance of coconuts and how to pick husk them were fun and interesting. Gentle fun is made of the ‘volunteers’, so if you’re chronically shy, hide at the back during the coconut climbing/ husking part. If not, throw your hand up and join in.
We had our grand kids with us - one is 2 years old and the twins are 4. They enjoyed themselves too, though found the coconut/ cultural bit a bit long. One of us just slipped away with them for a swim.
Good times

What an awesome experience! We took a group of 54 (10 adults and 44 12/13 year olds) as part of a school trip to the Cook Islands! From the minute we arrived the we could hear the drums and singing and it didn't stop all day! The crew were awesome and so talented! the water was beautiful with a abundance of sea life (the highlight was the moray eel and one of the crew patting its stomach). We probably ended up being in the water for about 45-1hr, which was a perfect amount of time for the kids. Then back to a beautiful island for a bbq lunch and afternoon of entertainment. A real highlight of our entire trip with lots of laughs and fun!!! The crew really are the stars!
