Rarotonga, Cook Islands

Our next port of call was Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.

How does viewing tropical fish from the comfort of a glass bottom boat, followed by snorkeling and a picnic sound to you? If it sounds good, Captain Tama's Lagoon Cruizes may be your ticket.

We booked the Muri Lagoon Cruise & Lunch shore excursion which went from 12:00 - 4:00 pm. It included a cruise aboard a glassbottom boat and a barbecue lunch on a Motu. It is possible to book directly with Captain Tama's if they have availability. In our case, Princess Cruises had booked all the available space on this tour.
The day was overcast, so the snorkeling wasn't very good. The lunch made up for it, however. We had grilled swordfish, fried bananas, potato salad, cole slaw, bread, and fresh fruits. For more pictures, click here. Despite the overcast skies, we still had a wonderful day in paradise.
Tahitian Princess had a day at sea before we arrived in our next port, Raiatea which I will describe in my next post.
