My husband and I love the Cooks. Making our third visit to Raro in September. Last year we took my parents and this year we are taking four of our grandkids.

Would love to hear any suggestions for great experiences for kids aged 6 to 11.

I've enjoyed perusing this site. I'm from the Cooks and like to think that I'm fairly aufait with things Polynesian. but looking through this site reminds me that I don't know everything. I suppose know something about most things and everything about a few things. my mother is Polynesian from Tongareva( Penrhyn) and my father is an Aborigine from the East coast of Australia. And my wife is from Samoa. Oceans, boomerangs and the Milky Way are in my blood.

Yoir site is interesting and informative, Thankyou so much. Went to Rarotonga last year, 2018 for the first time and will be going back again this year (2019). I have a distant cousin living on the island, married to a cook islander. How I wish I could live there myself, alas, they don’t allow it unless you have $1000s of spare cash you can buy a business with. It’s a beautiful, friendly place. Can’t wait to get back there. Just a shame I have to leave. ❤️

Kia Orana Beatriz.  I'm afraid there are no tours by sea of the outer islands.  Cook Islands News publishes details of ships departing from Raro, but they are infrequent and journeys to the more remote islands will take many days. The Harbour Master's Office on Raro is also a good source of information on imminent sailings and any yachts that may be departing.  But it would be very difficult to plan the type of trip you are proposing because even if you could find a ship or yacht to take you, you might have to wait days for a return vessel.

I hope to visit in 2016....I am a solo Paraplegic Traveller (Confined to a lightweight carbon fibre wheelchair). I am very fit and strong and have toured the World solo for over 15 years in my wheelchair. I am an ex-British Merchant Navy Officer. 

I would love to visit the Cook Islands and am wondering if you can buy an 'Airline multi ticket' to visit many of the Islands over a period of say a few months ? Or do you have to buy each Island ticket separately ?

Do many of your hostels have wheelchair access ? I can manage very well usually, but steps are a problem.

Thank you for your time in reading this, please e-mail ANY info to me. Regards - Carl

Michael  - I was shocked and saddened and very surprised to read about your experience.  Can I please suggest you contact the Cook Islands Whale and Wildlife Centre about this.   Their email is wildlifecentre@whaleresearch.org.   Alternatively, please contact Nan Hauser who is in charge of the research work, via nanhauser.com.

I was at club raro on the 1-sept 2015 and we witnessed the whale research boat harssing a mother whale and her calf for easily over an hour. The boat was only metresaway from them and it made the whaleschange direction at least 3 times every one was appalled to see this happening and when saw  the whale research boat insignia and we coulnt believe that they dont listen to there own instruction on how to stay away from them. What kind of whale research is this? Is there some sort of explanation for this atrocious behaviour or are these researchers just getting there kicks out of being up close?

Greetings.... :-D

Love your web page and everything about it. Spent many hours on it. Enjoyed all of the information, stories, and visually stunning photographs supplied here. Thank you, for the time and dedication that was spent on this website.

You gave many of us, a view into a beautiful place that we may never have an opportunity to visit.
Truly outstanding. ♥

Sorry, forgot to add. I am coming from Southern California. Direct flight. Also, sorry that the CI taxpayer has to flip for keeping the flight open. Read an article that stated this is the case. However, I am pretty sure the "Word of Mouth" thing is an understatement. When I get back and show pics of Raro and Aitutaki, it will be another great win for the Cook Islands. Just say'in! I expect PARADISE!!!!!

My name is Willy. Im a 48 you single man who wishes to relocate to the Cook Islands indefinately. I wish to live a minimalist and peaceful life in paradise. I have a very large skill set so im hoping i can find some employment even if menial and subservient.  I am a skilled truck driver/taxi pro....a security/peacekeeper....a salesman and customer service professional entrepreneur.....a farmer/gardener........survivalist.....handyman/property maintenance porter.....teacher/coach/mentor......hunter/fisherman.....Christian and overall kindhearted man of servitude. 
Can you help me find a path to the Cook's and ideas of how to find a home with the kind hearted people there?  This is how i wish to spend my last days.
Thank you for any help/advise you can provide.
Sincerely
T.William

Hello, I am from the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in United States. I am looking to find any info about Daniel Oliver Killis (Kellis) a Shinnecock Indian Whaler who left our in around 1855 an came to your area and never returned to Shinnecock. A man met Oliver in the 1948 and he was a Majestrate of the Island. If anyone who might have any info on him please contact me. I use to hear from a great grand son who was a police officer but we lost contact in the 1980's I think he was on the Rarotonga Island.  Thank You and hope to hear from you. Eugene Cuffee
