|The relaxed pace of
the Cook Islands is reflected by the types of watersports available. You can just wade
around in the cool turqoise lagoon to cool off, or pick up the oars and canoe or kayak to
one of the small islets in Muri lagoon, or take on the elements and windsurf or sail.
Rarotonga has implemented a raui (marine conservation) program over the past two years. As a result the lagoon is abundant with all kinds of marine life and make good snorkelling. If climbing into the water isn't your thing then you can watch the marine life from a glass bottom boat.
|For the professional
diver, we have some excellent cave diving, drop-offs and a wide selection of living coral.
Furthermore, with the climate changes over the past year, we are now starting to
get whale sharks. Diving in the Cook Islands is mostly safe, as there are no deadly
snakes, tiger or great white sharks. A plus for Cook Islands diving is that local divers
are committed to ridding dive spots of the dreaded crown of thorns and therefore, we have
a lot of living coral.
Gamefishing is also available. The majority of catches are yellow fin tuna, but marlin, mahi mahi and rainbow runner catches are common.
