About Us


The Cook Island’s most iconic dining destination.

Trader Jacks was established in 1986 by the Trader – Jack Cooper.

We have been bought to our knees three times in the last 30 years.

But each time we build up stronger.

If there is a real threat of cyclone, we can remove all windows and doors. Take out all of the

chattels and even fold down and truck away the Vaka Bar.

We offer the freshest seafood with all of our produce processed in house.

We work closely with local farmers, fishermen, and outer island suppliers

– Its well worth the trip!
