“Highlight of our Trip”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Our group from Rotorua spent the day on the Koka Cruise and it was by far the best exeperince we had during our whole entire trip! The guides were amazing, really interactive, easy going and funny, we had never laughed so much. One of our boys got up for the pareu tie and absolutely loved it, another got to the do the coconut climb and wanted to give it another go days after the cruise and the rest of the boys found themselves husking coconuts for nothing but fun aswell after cruise. The Snorkelling spot was top notch & the delicious BBQ was absolutely devine. All blended well with the singing of local and english songs by the crew! This Cruise is a must do while in Raro and is definitely worth it!

“Fun day out”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

The Koka Lagoon cruises trip was fun and informative right from the start. The crew were great including their musical skills and banter with the guests; the snorkelling part was amazing with lots to see and learn about; the staff really do care for the environment and the wildlife; the BBQ lunch was delicious and the entertainment that followed was great with the coconut tree climbing skills being the highlight. Worth every cent!

“A glorious day out”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The Koka guys are the most hardworking yet most relaxed-looking guys on the island. They drive the boat, sing in fantastic harmonies, guide snorkellers, cook BBQ lunch, run coconut workshops and climb trees.

We had a fantastic day out with these guys on our tour. There is a reason why they are so highly rated. Worth ever dollar.

“Still the best day out on Raro”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Spent the day with the Koka crew on Koka Lagoon Cruises yesterday. The best fun, best snorkeling, best lunch and great company. The big new boat is comfy and safe, plenty of room for all. The band sings and plays good music on the way there and back - such a happy bunch of guys. You learn heaps about the Cook Islands and Muri area in particular and the abundance of fish at the snorkeling site is really something else. I totally recommend this trip for every visitor to Raro, its my 4th trip and each time I've found it exhilarating, uplifting and a really great day out on and in the sea.
Dont miss this! if you only do one tourist thing during your stay, make sure its a trip with the Koka crew - you wont be disappointed. The transfers to and from your accommodation and snorkel gear etc is all included in the reasonable price. 3.5 hours of FUN !!

“Really great. What fun!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

What a welcome we got from the crew. We felt special straight away. As did everyone. We were entertained on the shot trip out to the snorkelling area and given a brief but comprehensive run down on the area, what to expect and safety before we entered the water. After time spent snorkelling we went onto the beach with some for a swim or paddle before we were called a really great smorgasbord lunch. Wow. Then we saw coconut tree climbing and two guests were given the chance to have a go at climbing. Goodness they did well. More singing and music on the way home was the icing on the cake.I really recommend this trip
