Overview
Limited to 5 guests per tour, REEF SNORKELLING is suitable for anyone with water confidence. No previous snorkelling experience is necessary. Experience Rarotonga’s sea life from the other side of the REEF, on this 3-hour snorkelling experience.

We provide VIP round-trip transportation to our spectacular snorkelling locations, dependant on the conditions of the day. Our premium snorkelling equipment is sanitised with highest hygiene standards and will be personally fitted to each guest. Then, before we dive into the action, a short safety brief is conducted to eliminate any unwanted surprises.

You are welcome to bring your personal camera, however we encourage you to score that “perfect shot” through the lens of your snorkelling equipment. The award winning photographers of Turama Photography have it covered.

Fresh organic refreshments of drinking coconuts and tropical fruits from our home plantation concludes our exclusive ocean experience

These guys were the right balance of professional and fun. We felt safe the whole time and could relax knowing they were looking out for us but they were also down to earth and personable so we had a great time. The amazing photos they took of our tour and supplied us afterwards were a definite plus. Would definitely do this tour again with this company next time we get back to Rarotonga. Tips for people considering this tour: 1) I am not sure how common this is, but the day we went out the rays were much lower down near the bottom, so harder to see unless you are confident holding your breath and diving down a bit (like some of our group did). Obviously there is nothing any tour company can do about this, but I just wanted to mention it to manage expectations. Personally seeing a good number of turtles and everything else close more than made up for this for me. 2) If possible try and book to do this earlier in your holiday in case the conditions aren't safe on the day and they need to defer your tour by a day or two. Cheers, Jo

I had an absolute blast and yummy refreshments afterwards. I hadn't done a lot of snorkeling. However with the support from these guys I felt reassured while I was snorkelling.

Amazing family friendly snorkel tour. I am not a very confident swimmer so knowing that the guide team were experienced locals with years of water safety experience made me feel super comfortable and relaxed enough to enjoy the surroundings. The crew were so friendly and catered to everyone’s needs. The snorkel was incredible, we got to see different types of sea life and so many turtles! An intimate little tour with loads of fun and adventure. 10/10 would recommend. Here are some shots of our snorkel day with Josh and his team a complimentary photo service provided by Snorkel Cook Islands.

Loved going on the tour and seeing all the turtles. Felt so safe with Josh, Tem and Feena. It was a nice break from our situation of being stranded and the rollercoaster of emotions that comes along with that. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone. So far it's been one of my favourite moments on this Island. Looking forward to see the eagle rays and the reef sharks with you guys!

This guys are the best. They know the greatest of Raros spots to see big turtles and lots of more. Their photos are so beautiful and as you go out to deeper parts of the lagoon I couldnt felt more safe with the best lifeguards in Raro. This is for sure a must! Already have another booking to see whats more is hiding underneath the water surface. To be 110% honest i cant wait!!
