Rarotonga's spectacular tropical beauty and marine life is yours to discover during this scenic and memorable cruise on the Muri Lagoon.
Depart the pier for the 20-minute drive to Muri Beach. Upon arrival, you will obtain your snorkeling equipment and embark a glass-bottom boat for a cruise of Muri Lagoon. Along the way, you will observe a myriad of colorful coral and fish and the more adventurous will have an opportunity to go snorkeling amongst the schools of tropical fish found in this marine conservation area. The fish are extremely tame and used to swimmers, so much so that they will take food from your hand.
Heading to Koromiri Island, you'll be treated to a rustic barbecue lunch will then be served on the pristine beach. While lunch is cooking, feel free to swim, snorkel or just relax on the beach. The lunch menu for this barbecue is typically comprised of fresh fish, usually tuna, wahoo or sailfish accompanied by potato salad, coleslaw and seasonal fruit.
Afterwards, you'll re-board your boat and cruise back to Muri beach where you will be transferred back to the ship.
