Eastern Star - Sailing Tours

The Eastern Star is a modern yacht, pretty with huge decks and inside viewing; excellent for whale watching. Passengers are welcomed aboard by the captain and introduced to the crew before a short safety briefing is held.

As the SV Eastern Star departs at the Avatiu harbour, passengers’ are invited to take the helm and steer the boat or help with sails if they are interested or just relax and soak in the amazing view. Depending on the wind, the Eastern Star generally sails along the west of the island of Rarotonga where the view is spectacular and where you can truly appreciate the sheer size and beauty of Rarotonga. During whale season (July-October) when the water is a brilliant blue, Humpback Whales frequent the seas around Rarotonga and have been known to come up to and under the Eastern Star. Game boats fish in the abundant seas of Rarotonga so don’t be surprised if you see fishermen pulling in large Marlin or other such game fish. 

Eastern Star also does frequent trips to the outer islands of the Cooks and is a "Once in a Lifetime" way to experience the nature, culture and beautifulness of the Cook Islands. Email us to enquire about the Eastern Star upcoming outer island trips.
