Aquatic Eco Trail
We are passionate about taking care of the environment and many areas in the Cook Islands are marine protected sites. Pacific Resort Hotel Group partnered up with Pacific Islands Conservation Initiative in 2011 to raise awareness of the fragile eco system and challenges facing our reefs through the introduction of the Cook Island’s first Aquatic Eco Trail on the reef at Pacific Resort Aitutaki.
The Pacific Resort Aquatic Eco Trail
is a self guided snorkelling and education tour of Pacific Resort’s lagoon environment. Guests may choose to visit just one area and learn about its elements or navigate the entire trail. Six different lagoon habitats have been identified (each marked with a white buoy), the trail map provides an overview of what is likely to be found in each, enabling guests to explore each habitat at their own pace.
The six lagoon habitats are named: Reef Crest, Mature Porites Bommies, Regenerating Corals, Acropora Nursery, Holothurian Beds and Near Shore Sandy Nursery. A variety of marine species can be found in the specific sites including, green sea turtle, angelfish, butterfly fish and whitespotted eagle ray.
