This was an awsome entertaining excursion coupled with a team who know how to make you laugh. The snorkling was interesting and the island stop for lunch etc. was filled with local tunes and again hilarity with their teaching of local island traditions. The Umu was delicious and I come away with the thought that the next BBQ i have... More

Great snorkelling and amazing lunch. The sense of humour could do with a bit of a change. A bit sexist. Overall a great experience.

The lagoon cruise was not what my husband and I are used to. I feel like there were too many people that went out that it was crowded. People were literally swimming right into me not having any acknowledgment of their surroundings. With that being said the crew was fun and energetic and the lunch was delicious.

While the snorkeling was average the day was made by the staff - so friendly and a lot of fun - they truly love their jobs. After the swim back to an island for BBQ lunch - the marinated fish was wonderful. Then the staff put on a show - climbing coconut tree, weaving, singing - so enjoyable. Must do!!

We went out on a day trip on Captain Tama's cruiseboat as part of an island wedding buildup. They are in a great location on Muri beach, next door to Sails restaurant & bar and a short walk to the outside market (which is well worth visiting too). The lagoon itself has suffered from Algal bloom in recent years, which... More
