About Us – We Are Adventure Cook Islands

Adventure Cook Islands history

Adventure Cook Islands is a locally owned adventure company, founded by Sean Wichman and Patrick Jaletzky in 2009. Sean and Patrick merged two former companies – Reef To See, a snorkel and spearfishing company and Adventure Hire, an equipment rental company with Island Way Adventures to form the foundation of their new company, ADVENTURE COOK ISLANDS LTD.

In 2020, just as Covid hit the world and the Cook Islands borders were shut, the company moved their premises from Kavera Beach to Aroa Beach, just 800 metres to the south.
