The tour begins with a transfer to the departure point in Muri. Cruise across the beautiful Muri lagoon to a protected reserve where many species of marine life dwell. You will have the chance here to snorkel and feed the fish before heading to a motu (small islet). On the motu you can enjoy more swimming, a stroll around the island or just relax in the sun while your friendly crew prepare a scrumptious Fish BBQ lunch served with local fruits and side dishes.
You will be well entertained through-out the tour by your crew who are also a well-known local string band N.S.A (No Strings Attached). On the motu following lunch, your crew will explain and demonstrate the many uses of our tree of life ‘the coconut tree. There will also be a pareu (sarong) tying show, your crew will demonstrate how a simple and beautiful printed piece of material can be worn in style for many occasions.
Although the lagoon is sheltered and protected by the fringing coral reef, Captain Tama still places great importance on Safety First. All Glass Bottom Boats are equipped with full safety gear including Life jackets and snorkelling vests for the young and old, a radio and mobile phones. All crew are well versed in Water Rescue and First Aid.
The protected reserve is full of different species of marine life, including giant clams, many types of fish, and if lucky the occasional turtle, sting ray or Charlie the moray eel will be there to greet you. For many years Captain Tamas has supported the initiative to protect our precious lagoon for our future generations, and each year donates a percentage of sales to marine conservation, you will see the results of this effort while snorkeling.
Your crew not only ensure you are well entertained but also ensure your safety while aboard the boat. If you are not a swimmer or need assistance with snorkeling then your crew are more than happy to assist you.
