It was a great experience, but if you need to cancel and you have booked via internet they can't refund you as they say they haven't recived their money yet,l booked for 4 adults and 1 kid,one adult got sick and l tried to cancel within the allowed time for a refund ,thwy cancelled it but if l wanted a refund l had to go on line and cancel on line and WiFi is gold in Cook island,so l lost my money,but the experience itself is super and 5 star,the cruise captain,highly entertaining and informative and helpful,every one can snorkel they have life jackets for kids and poor swimmers,food is plenty and great,fantastic!,just do it!

We in fact did NOT do the tour due to our own mistake in booking the wrong location. We landed on a different Island in fact. I communicated with Viator my mistake and they asked the operator for a full refund which they honoured. Very kind of them and hope to use them in the future. Good will is excellent! Thanks
