Cruise across the crystal clear waters of Muri Lagoon, on the eastern side of Rarotonga, in a comfortable glass-bottom boat. A local string band entertains you during the ride.

From your vantage point on the boat you can survey a rich variety of marine life, including many colorful tropical fish of varying sizes and shapes that abound among the coral outcrops that reside in the lagoon. View the miniature black pearl farm and giant paua (abalone) located in the vicinity of the marine-protected lagoon.

Explore this underwater world up close as you enjoy an opportunity to snorkel with the marine life.

Next, cruise to pristine Koromiri -- a tiny uninhabited island within the lagoon where you can explore safely at your leisure or continue snorkeling and swimming.

Enjoy a tasty barbecue lunch before your local guide treats you to a tree climbing show and a coconut-husking demonstration.
