Owner description: Join us for an exhilarating 1-hr ride aboard our speed boat, Eturere! This 8.5-meter Gemini V-hull rigid inflatable boat meets NZ survey requirements for safety purposes, and you will be riding in comfort as its twin 250-horsepower engines shoot you across the ocean. Experience the breathtaking view of Rarotonga’s mountains from the ocean! During whale season, we slow it down for whale watching!

Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our ride. It was exhilarating, thrilling, fun and wet (especially for those in the back!). We were amazed at the blueness of the water, the flying fish we saw and how warm the sea was. The crew were just great too. Very friendly and professional. I have not been in a fast boat like that before but at no time did I feel unsafe, I felt very safe and in good hands. We can highly recommend this, and we will be doing it again next time we return.

Rongohiva Watersports, leaving from the Harbour, provided a "thrillseekers" ride for me and my family in March. We all enjoyed it and would certainly do it again. The crew were very professional in regards to safety and information. The riders in the front were enjoying the almost 'roller coaster' like ride :) and of course there was a certain amount of spray!!! Take a waterproof camera if you have one. The trip itself took about an hour..I think, so need to allow time for instructions etc.as well.The boat is a fantastic idea and we wish you well in your new venture. We LOVED it!!!

This speedboat ride on the "Shooting Star" is really a fun experience to do on water if you're in Rarotonga. It is fantastic to ride in high speed over the ocean, the team is wonderful and as a plus you have a wonderful view to the island from the water. Absolutely 100% great and recommendable! very nice and friendly team!
