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.

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

Their's trip to Rarotonga. Married on the beach there 15 years ago. Took kids back to see. Rented a house this time in Muri. Beautiful and very relaxing. Food expensive to buy in Rarotonga. Muri night food markets- brilliant. Amazing selection of mains and desserts from locals. Better than cooking. As I recall they're opened 4 nights a week. Travelled... More

Patrick was very friendly and accommodating to all our needs and skill levels..

This was my 2nd time to Rarotonga and I wanted to dive the southern part of the island (before I had been to the north and west). We had quite a bit of wind during my visit, which made a lot of other dive companies avoid the area. Patrick, however, was very accommodating (in a responsible way!!) and looked for... More

Me and my partner completed three dives with Patrick and karina. They were so helpful and patient even after having to reschedule our last dive as I was unwell. We had an amazing time exploring the reefs of Rarotonga. The dive locations were stunning and my partner (who had never dived before) now wants to complete her scuba ticket. Thanks... More

Patrick and Karina were fantastic to dive with. I can't thank them enough- professional and caring. Everything was top notch- the equipment and the experience. I can't recommend this place enough.

I did 4 dives in 2 days. The team is very professional and caring. During the dives it was only me and an another diver. Felt like a private dive. Patrick and Carina make sure that you feel comfortable at any time. You learn so much of them. I recommend this place to everyone!
