This was the highlight of our trip to Aitutaki. The boat was small but as there were only 4 of us it was ideal. Teking and Captain Nogood knew their way around the lagoon and where to stop for some good snorkeling. Teking actually lead us on one of the trips and made sure we saw the variety of underwater...

Surreal. Pictures are not Photoshopped. Aitutaki lagoon is best seen on the water. For variety and number of dive sites for snorkelling, wealth of knowledge, culture and the best BBQ fish meal we continue to go on Teking lagoon cruises. Highly recommend a private lagoon cruise -fishing available, private beaches, NZ wines, own snorkelling sites plus a delicious BBQ fish... More

We had a great day out on Aitutaki's lagoon with Teking Lagoon Cruises. Our friendly and quirky guide was well informed, handled the boat professionally and was very amusing, so it was a fun time from start to finish. We had 3 snorkeling stops among the coral bommies and giant clams-small & large, with an abundance of colourful fish of... More

This is a small boat but delivers BIG! A substitute skipper wasn't overly enthusiastic, even admitting that he finds it boring, but the sites and attractions he delivered left every other cruise for dead.(yes, we compared notes!) We even caught a turtle! The snorkel sites were varied and the highlights were pointed out beforehand. We had 4 over 60's and... More

This is one of the best cruises we have been on. Teking is so knowledgeable about the lagoon and the environment and makes you feel really confident about getting in the water and all the beautiful things that are down there. He is super funny and of course the sites that he takes you to along the way are just... More

We had been snorkelling off our hotel beach for a couple of days and had already fallen in love with the lagoon, then came along Tekings lagoon cruise. I have watched a lot of video footage of divers and snorkelers and been amazed by the wonderful views of different lagoons and tropical fish, this was better than anything I have... More

This was our second time on a day trip on Aitutaki lagoon but our first time with the famous Teking. If you go to Aitutaki you MUST do a day tour of the lagoon and Teking is the best. We had a fantastic amount of snorkel time amongst giant trevally, Napoleon Wrasse and thousands of other fish. Far more time... More

We were recently on a Paul Gauguin cruise that was scheduled to stop in Aitutaki. Several months before the cruise, I contact Teking Lagoon Cruises to charter a boat and day long excursion for six of us when we were going to be there. Our ship's itinerary changed on two occasions and my email correspondence with Teking was prompt and... More

Had an awsome time on Teking's cruz with captain Tai and chef Upa. An experience worth giving a try. Marine life are so unique that we at times don't realise how precious they are. Why not check it out yourself. Well done Tai and Upa and not to forget the man himself... "TEKING"...

The Lagoon Cruise is a must in Aitutaki. It was an amazing day and if I ever go back I for sure will do another cruise. We went out to see all the beautiful little island and also had the chance to snorkel at different places which was sooo beautiful, you cant describe it in words, you just have to... More
