This was a fantastic day, the crew were really fun and engaging and although the snorkeling was amazing the crew and the lunch time show were the highlight of the day. Highly recommend this as a must do when in Rarotonga.

Had the most amazing day at Muri Lagoon - we saw many fish and despite the rain it was still heaps of fun. The island food is delicious and the crew really completed the experience - they are so happy and energetic and funny! It was our second time on this cruise and would for sure love to go again :-)

Definitely the best experience I had in Rarotonga, we were looked after and entertained throughout the day. The tour guide and captain were funny and the crew was awesome and provided us with demonstrations and knowledge. The food and snorkelling was excellent and you can't leave Raro without doing this. If you want a laugh I highly recommend. Kapai to mahi.

Fantastic. Ka Kite.
Didn't happen.
, Aug 2021
It was cancelled by the host and we are waiting for the refund. We were disappointed but a big storm had damaged the lagoon so it was unsuitable to sail.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
I hope you have received your refund by now. We advised Viator the day the trip was cancelled that you were entitled to a full refund. So sorry that we were unable to control the weather or seas so you could enjoy a day out on the lagoon with us.
