Discover Winter in Paradise: Whale Watching and Island Adventures with Pacific Resort Hotel Group

Posted on 25/06/2024

As winter descends in the Southern Hemisphere, there’s no better time to escape to the tropical paradise of the Cook Islands. With average temperatures hovering around a balmy 26°C during the day and a comfortable 19°C at night, the Cook Islands offer a perfect antidote to the winter blues. Visitors can picture themselves basking in the warmth, surrounded by lush landscapes and crystal-clear waters, a stark contrast to the chilly winter weather back home.

The warm and sunny climate of the Cook Islands makes it ideal for outdoor activities such as snorkelling, hiking, and exploring the island. The comfortable temperatures of the winter months allow visitors to enjoy the full range of activities without the intense heat of summer.

One of the highlights of visiting the Cook Islands during the winter months is the opportunity to witness the majestic humpback whales. Whale watching season, which runs from July to October, provides an unforgettable experience as these gentle giants migrate through the Cook Islands’ pristine waters. The thrill of spotting a breaching whale against the backdrop of a stunning sunset is a memory to cherish.

To make the most of your winter getaway, we highly recommend booking in advance, so that you too can enjoy and fully embrace the island’s offerings during this popular time. Checking the Cook Islands’ event calendar for upcoming events and experiences that align with travel dates adds another layer of excitement to your holiday.
