Great way to see the underwater world of Rarotonga, watch GTs getting fed up close see the beautiful coral and if your lucky like us see whales jumping and swimming around raro. Very informative couple of hours well worth it.

Kia Orana. The trip is between one and a quarter hours and one and a half hours. Sometimes slightly longer if we are with whales.
