So you’re headed to Rarotonga and want an adventure out on the Polyneisan waters? Big groups or small, families or friends, experienced anglers or first-timers – Akura Fishing Charters has the ingredients to make your Rarotonga fishing charter the most memorable and exciting part of your whole holiday. Ask any local of the island, past traveler, or just look at their TripAdvisor reviews!

The world famous experience that will keep you coming back to the Cooks!

So you’re going to the Cook Islands and want a couple of recommendations? You’ll be wasting your time if you look any further than Captain Tama’s. Ask any local of the island, any past traveler, or just look on their Trip Advisor reviews.  Since 1992, Captain Tama’s has worked hard in establishing themselves as the most visited tourist attraction in Rarotonga.

Why you ask? How is their service different than the dozens of other operators on the island? Some say it’s the hilarious, boisterous and every so friendly staff that will make your 4 ½ hour journey utterly entertaining.  After you don’t think it gets any better the boat drops you off at Motu Koromiri (a small island) and an authentic Polynesian lunch is served! A BBQ lunch of fresh fish, side salads and local fruits are served. While eating, the Tama boys put on an epic coconut show with island sounds from the N.S.A String Band.  AHHHHH…island life.

Whether you’re a snorkeler or not, the boat is equipped with a glass bottom so you have the chance of seeing giant clams and heaps of colorful reef fish from the comfort of the boat. However, if you want to experience the waters yourself, they will provide you with snorkeling gear and guidance while in the water.

The only disappointing part of the whole experience is the fact you have to leave the wildly entertaining group and authentic island experience. After a day like this, you’ll wish they offered overnight cruises! Take a better look at what you’ll be experiencing:
