Paul and Elizabeth's Adventures in The Cook Islands

Day 36, Monday, September 30, 2002—
Today we took Captain Tama’s glass-bottom boat cruise of Muri Lagoon and snorkled off the boat in one of the marine preserves surrounding Rarotonga. The tour included stop at a deserted island (Motu) for a delicious beach BBQ, more snorkling, and demonstrations of local crafts. Our captain & crew (the both of them!) were a lot of fun and great guides. We highly recommend Capt. Tama's Cruize if you get to Rarotonga.
