Heading to Rarotonga end of august,

Keen to do a touch of fishing, 

can any one recommend anything/anyone to go with?

Id rather go GT fishing than heavy game fishing,

I want to take my soft bait rod and might head out on a hired kayak ect,
is this OK to do or frowned upon by locals ect?

Regarding GT fishing....I don't think they really do it on Rarotonga. Aitutaki is better for that from what I've heard. When I was over there (Raro) last December I inquired about GT fishing with some of the charter companies at the wharf and they all said because they don't eat them they don't catch them and the GTs that come up to the wharf are treated like pets. I reckon you'd be better off taking your own stickbait/popping gear if you have it and ask in the fishing club.

That was just my experience. I'm sure there's more knowledgeable on here than me who can help you though.
