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.

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 🐙. They were able to supply all the gear, which was in great condition (a few minor wear and tear on the wetsuits but not... More

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

Amazing dive, like another underwater world. We are hooked and will continue our dive experience in NZ. Karina and Patrick were fantastic and patient teachers and very professional. Would totally recommend the intro lagoon dive then the reef dive package. A+++

The people at the dive shop were very nice, and had good experience of the dive sites. The only downside that I would say is that they do not keep a person on the boat during the dive which made me very nervous from a safety perspective although Patrick did get us back to the boat exactly where it was....

Kia Orana phillyf00die Thank you for your review about your experience with us. Diving in Rarotonga is quite different to most dive destinations. All the dive sites are very close to land. The boat rides are short and you don't drive out to the open sea for miles. All dive sites here are on the outer reef within a few... More
