Teking lagoon tours was the best lagoon tour we've done. He's knowledgeable, funny & you see and do so much! Stopping at 5 islands, walking across the sandbank through knee deep water over to One foot Island & the lunch they supply is brilliant.

We went in March 2011 on our honeymoon. Teking was great! A fountain of local knowledge and a few jokes as well! He makes you fell really relaxed and welcome. A great day out on the beautiful lagoon; snorkelling and one foot island were great, and the lunch of fresh fish and local style food was awesome! Thoroughly recommend! If... More

Yet another two memorable lagoon trips with Teking and his friendly crew. 3 amazing snorkelling locations, an amazing and substantial BBQ lunch of fresh fish and local salads and fruit, on the beautiful island of Maina. See you next year Teking.

Wow! The lagoon here is amazing and going out with Teking is a perfect way to explore it. We had 10 people on our trip which was a great number especially after seeing the larger boats where I imagine you're just a number. It's easy to see how Teking loves the area and wants it to be retained for future... More

We had a group of seven of us and privately hired a day long snorkelling cruise with Teking It was worth every penny. Great spots, entertainment, gear and food. I can recommend it all.

Honestly the best snorkelling cruise in the best lagoon in the world. Bora Bora can stand aside because Aitutaki is better. Teking and his crew are the best people in Aitutaki to show you the real wonders of the lagoon. This is a must do in Aitutaki.

Amazing trip with Teking. The lagoon was beautiful. Teking was very funny and interesting. The boat was small so we got to go to a lot of places the other boats didn't, including the most incredible snorkelling spots. I wish we had gone another day with Teking as well. I would highly recommend this and hope to do it again.

Teking cruises is the only cruise company to have their own private snorkelling area. This means that we got to see more of the lagoon than the other cruise companies. We were picked up from our resort and taken to the boat. We were initially given a brief guideline by Captain Teking who was hilarious. Then Captain No Good and... More

After returning from our second trip to the French Polynesian / Cook Islands Bora Bora bows its majestic head to Aitutaki. Teking and his crew took us on a fabulous snorkeling expedition that revealed the untold treasures of the sea in amazing color. Yes, we were blessed with amazing weather so the Paul Gauguin could get into port, but Teking... More

Teking (who is the captain) was both funny and attentive on our trip - snorkeling in the lagoon of aitutaki. He taught us about the fish and coral and also shared info about the Cook Islands. Best trip i have ever been on - he was the only trip that spoke about protecting the coral. Teking you and your boys... More
