Wreck of the Matai

In the Avarua district of Rarotonga, it is possible to see (even just from the shore) the sunken wreck of the SS Matai that was carrying a load of cars from the United States to New Zealand in 1916. It is now one of the preferred spots for divers and truly a unique attraction! PADI Dive Center and Adventure Tour Operator Adventure Cook Islands:

Do & See

With such a perfect climate and beautiful water it is easy to understand the local saying “Cook Islands people are born of the sea”. Here, in fact, most activities are connected to the sea: there are safe places for snorkelling, swimming and diving for all ages and abilities. Rarotonga’s lagoon, around Muri lagoon, Aro’a Beach, Black Rock and Titikaveka are all excellent beaches. The Muri lagoon, in particular, is one of the Cook Islands´ most beautiful locations. It is fantastic for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing.
