“We had a great time with the boys back in April. We had a family group of 11 and myself and youngest niece who were a little apprehensive were made to feel safe and comfortable. It was definitely one of the highlights of my life and I would do it again in a heartbeat. We saw heaps of beautiful turtles 🐢, got some amazing photos. We were invited to return to the beach the following day and use their SUP boards. Love you guys, cannot say enough good things about you ❤️”

“The absolute best day we’ve had in Rarotonga! We saw so many turtles, the guys were amazing and they are not kidding about how good their snorkel gear was. I’ve snorkelled around the world and have never had a day this good.

“We did the tour in May with a group of friends and absolutely loved it. You guys were amazing with us and so many turtles to see. The communication was great and the photos were amazing. Thanks so much for a great afternoon. This was the highlight of our Cook Island holiday. We have passed your details only lots of our friends.”

“Joining the Turtle Tour with our family of 6 is easily one of the best holiday experiences we have ever had. The guides took patient care of our youngest age 7 who isn't water confident so that we could enjoy the full experience. The kids haven't stopped talking about it, and have enjoyed sharing their photos with their classmates. We got some great shots which encapsulate our treasured memories. I can't recommend this enough. Thanks to the boys and Bernz for all you guys do”

“An absolutely amazing experience for us all. These guys were fun and knowledgeable, making sure everyone including kids were looked after. We had such a great time, and will have memories of swimming next to seas turtles forever. I can’t rate go local highly enough!”

—Rachelle Hopkinson

“Had a mean afternoon with these guys highly recommend. Went on a surf tour and loved it, the boys took me out to Ruataki passage and put me on some awesome waves. The local knowledge that they share and the confidence they have in the water gives you the confidence to paddle into waves that you may not have if you were out on your own. Thanks heaps Go Local Cook Islands and thanks to the other locals out there with us who were very generous with their waves. See you next time.”

—Peter William Clark

Snorkelling with the turtles. thought we might get lucky enough to see 1 but there were heaps!! so graceful and beautiful in their natural surroundings. The guys running the tour were friendly, knowledgeable and man could they free dive for ages! Can't wait to get to see the photos as was absolutely amazing for our whole family of 4.”

“Absolutely fantastic, best experience of our lives! Forget swimming with dolphins, this was so much better!! We were well looked after and felt very safe. Fabulous views of the turtles! Really enjoyed the coconut demonstration and the fruit/coconut afterwards. Great to go out with the locals and learn more about the area. Got a great tip for a good snorkeling area as well.”

—Margaret King

“We saw loads of turtles, heaps of different fish and even a few eagle rays. The crew were fantastic. Heaps of fun. Staff to guest ratio was high, so novice snorkelers were happy to go on the trip... they are not novices anymore! There was fruit and drinking coconuts after the snorkel and a drive through the back roads to our accommodation. A fantastic trip, I would recommend to everyone.”
