MAGICAL MAUKE 
Mauke is one of the most accessible of the outer islands, but there are few visitors.  I can't recommend it too highly.  It's a truly magical place, and I hope you'll see why as you watch this short film.  The video was shot in Spring, 2006 and is 3 minutes 35 seconds long.

DISCOVER YOUR OWN BLUE LAGOON
Stunningly beautiful AITUTAKI was the location for the US reality TV series "Survivor Cook Islands" and the UK's own version, "Shipwrecked".   Aitutaki is the most visited island after Rarotonga.   And it's crystal clear, turquoise blue lagoon has to be seen to be believed.  Click here to watch that video.

TAKE A TOUR OF MAGICAL MAUKE
MAUKE is about 45 minutes flying time from Rarotonga but there are few visitors.  But those who venture to this remarkable island discover an unspoiled paradise with hidden treasures and some of the most friendly people you could ever wish to meet.   Click here to watch the video.

TAKING A FLYING TOUR OF THE 'ISLAND OF THE BIRDS'
AITU -  the third largest and third most visited of the Cook Islands - is also known as Enuamanu which means land of the birds.  More species live there than on any of the other islands, and they include some of the world's rarest.  But there's much more to Atiu than just birds, as you'll find out.  Click here to watch the video

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE COOK ISLANDS: PART 2 OF 2
This is the second and final part of an ambitious attempt to capture the essence of the Cook Islands.  Part one covered eight of the nine islands in the Southern group.  In part two, I'll take you to the remaining island in the south, Palmerston where everyone has the same name because they're all descended from one Englishman who settled there with his wives in the mid 19th century.  The rest of the film takes you around the six Northern Group islands which some have said are "the stuff of dreams".

So...even if you're not planning a visit the Cook Islands yourself, I hope through the medium of video I can share with you why I think this is a very special place.  Have a great journey!
