Founded in 2017 by Kave Tamaariki a local Cook Islander and his wife Julie, who wanted to share the beauty of our moana (ocean) and the magic of our turtles who live in the Avaavaroa Passage. 

Working alongside Cook Island Tourism and MMR, we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that we are committed to protecting and maintaining the environment and health of our turtles. 

Our goal is to provide the safest turtle tours that are accessible to everyone and that’s why we are the only operators with the lightweight and state of the art Premium Le Feet Sea Scooters.
