We went snorkelling st Tikioki Reserve opposite Fruits of Rarotonga at high tide. Within 2m of the shoreline we were surrounded by fish. We went out to waist deep and the sealife got more plentiful. Highly recommend this activity.

When I was here at the first time the water was bit unclear. However, I still saw a lot of different fish. This is ideal place for kids who are not a good swimmer. Bring your own gear will be a good idea!

Went out on a glass bottom boat and did some snorkeling. The waters are clear and teaming with fish. All sizes and colours.

We went to the fruits twice for viewing the fish and coral. Great deeper water than the Muri Lagoon. The fish were bigger and more schools of fish plus the variety of fish was bigger. Had a ball both times
