Raro Reef Sub

Be captivated and charmed by Rarotonga's only semi-submersible eco tour! Have you ever wondered what tropical wonders are hidden beneath the surface of the ocean here in Rarotonga? Wonder no more!  

Raro Reef Sub offers you a unique and enthralling introduction to the outer reef and the creatures that inhabit it. This is NOT a glass bottom boat. Raro Reef Sub is a purpose built semi-submarine with windows in the hull.  

You have the choice of soaking in the amazing island views from the top deck, or venturing below deck into an underwater wonderland - full of incredible sealife, coral and an astonishing century old shipwreck.

Commonly seen marine creatures are:  

  • Giant trevally
  • Tropical fish
  • Turtles
  • Stingrays
  • Eels
  • Humpback whales (during whale season)

Our tours are offered Sunday to Friday and last 1.5 hours. Tours leave at 9am, 11am, 2pm and 4pm.
Bookings are essential and can be made by email, phone call or pop down to the harbour at least 10 minutes prior to departure and try your luck. Charters are also available for up to 16 people.

You will find Raro Reef Sub at Avatiu Harbour, just 5 minutes walk (west) from the Punanga Nui Markets.
