The Destination – Rarotonga
The Cook Islands with stunning mountainous peaks, glorious beaches, lush tropical gardens and turquoise lagoons, still remains largely unspoilt by tourism and relatively undiscovered as a diving destination.
The Cook Islands have no large resorts or hotels, but a selection of accommodation from simple beach huts to luxurious villas. There are numerous local restaurants offering a charming dining experience.
A slow pace of life, friendly people, hiking, snorkeling, diving and just lazing around, there is plenty to recommend the Cook Islands.
This is a perfect destination to unwind, relax & kick back – enjoying a tropical island location.

DIVE TOUR HIGHLIGHTS
Rarotonga offers a great destination for those who wish to mix good diving with a relaxed, south seas vacation. Isolated by thousands of square miles of ocean, Rarotonga’s fringing reef is washed by the clean, clear waters of the South Pacific.
The reef is characterised by a gently sloping plateau out to about 30m / 100ft, where the reef steepens and ‘drops off’ into the abyss. There is a variety of terrain and fish life at different parts of the reef and with over 30 dive sites there are plenty of options to keep you interested.
The south side of the Cook island is characterised by a shallow lagoon which empties to the ocean by passages or passes. These passages offer exciting canyon like dives with sharks, rays and turtles often present. Access to these is only by boat and we dive them from the outside of the reef.
The north coast of the Cook island has the most coral cover with huge Porites bommies mushrooming up and forming overhangs and gullies. Turtles, Napoleon Wrasse and the myriad of reef dwellers can be easily approached on this coast offering great interactions and opportunities for photography.
There are a few wide sandy runoffs located on the northern side of the island, a favourite resting place of white tip reef sharks. The drop off is also accessible and looking from 30m / 100ft to depths of over 80m / 250ft can make your heart flutter.
