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.

If you do your research carefully, you'll end up with Patrick at Adventure Cook Islands. He's the most experienced diver on Rarotonga and I'm glad that I did my PADI certification with him. He substantiated the theory part with his extensive knowledge which allowed me to breeze through the final quiz. The dives were nothing short of spectacular and since... More

The owners of this dive shop and hire business could not be more friendly, knowledgeable or helpful. I am a certified scuba diver but my 11 year old son had never tried. Karina took us for an introductory dive in the lagoon. She was amazing. We had an hour-long lesson to go through the basic safety drill of diving. Karina... More

Patrick was a great instructor, as I was on a placement at the hospital he was able to be flexible with times to complete my theory and dives. He is knowledgable, and enthusiastic to teach new divers. All the staff at Adventure Cook Islands were lovely and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone for diving training, or for casual... More

We went for a snorkel to the outer reef and were really impressed. The snorkel trip was a great price and it was just the two of us on the trip. The instructor was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to my friends :)

Great company to deal with. I emailed a week ahead of our holiday to book in a few scuba diving trips. Prompt and informative responses, they were very helpful in working around our specific requests 🐙.

My first dive in 12 years, very glad I chose Adventure Cook Islands. From the instruction in the lagoon to the boat dives on the outer reef I could not have been better looked after by Carina and Patrick. Excellent value for money, I will definitely be using them again next time I am in Raro.

I've been wanting to try out scuba diving for a very long time, but like many people, I was a bit worried about actually getting under the water. Karina was a very calm and patient instructor who put my mind at ease. She took the time to thoroughly explain how everything worked and guided us on a lovely introductory tour... More

Adventure Cook Islands is not the cheapest dive company but they are the best value for money. Out of the three dive shops I have used in Rarotonga. Adventure Cook Islands had the best equipment the best instruction and took me that bit further to get to the best dives. This was my second dive with them and I re-visited... More
