We had a fabulous day with this crew. AmAzing snorkelling in the calm turquoise lagoon. Went to an island and had a traditional BBQ of fresh tuna, BBQ bananas and onions along with salads. The guys sang and did some great demos. They were having fun which makes everyone enjoy their time. I would recommend this crew for sure.

We were lucky to have Captain Lollipop and Cupcake look after us. These guys are brilliant and kept us entertained the whole time. Great afternoon of fun and education. Only disappointment was Lollipop did not go up the coconut tree. Highly recommend this trip.

These boys are great. Good snorkelling too. A little bit much on the innuendo... it's a good cultural trip with food at the end which is fresh

Excellent day on water, funny, and pure entertainment If you want real Cook islander style meals, see the lagoon properly and have a typical islander meal this is the cruise to get on.

I really just wanted to get to some better snorkeling spots but enjoyed this tour immensely. They go out of their way to make it fun and throw in an odd fact or two between all the singing. The lunch was delicious.

The half day highlight was simply phenomenal! The crowd on the cruise is evident as to how popular this is. The locals on the boats did not disappoint and we had amazing fun snorkeling amongst the tropical fish and giant trevally galore. The remote beachfront BBQ lunch was a fine way to end the tour. Thank you and we will... More
