More personal than the others with smaller boats. Great snorkelling spots and eco-friendly - has own moorings so no anchors on the coral. Excellent food. Highly recommend this trip - in fact so good I've done it 3 times!

My wife, who is not a snorkeller, took this day trip with Teking whilst in Aitutaki and had a suberb day. The snorkelling in the clear water was excellent and the islands visited were beautiful. Teking use small boats - there were about 10 of us - and are great hosts. The lunch they provided was better than many hotel/restaurant... More

We had the most perfect day ever with Captain So good! Apparently it was his first time as captain and so we were the only three people booked in for the day, which made it super amazing!! Lots of snorkelling, 45 minutes each in 3 locations and the food was A-MAZING!! Couldn't rave about this tour enough - and the... More

I seriously think you will never be able to rate these guys on any consistent scale. If Teking is the captain, and you like condescending humor, you will love it. If Captain No Good is at the helm and you get him to crack a smile, and he gives you some history or sea life info, you will love it.... More

We spent a fabulous day with Teking and his merry men while they ferried us all over the fabulous Aitutaki lagoon. My Wife does not snorkel so while I met George, the massive Giant Trevally and an equally massive Humphead Wrasse she whiled away the hours getting Teking's story. This is well worth listening too and quite inspirational, but you'll... More

We loved our lagoon cruise with TeKing! Our experience actually started the afternoon prior to our scheduled cruise when TeKing called us at our hotel to find out if we wanted to go ahead with the cruise since the weather was supposed to be cloudy and rainy the next day, or if we wanted to wait and see what the...

TeKing was sick, so we were stuck with Mr. No Good and his weird humor and arrogance. Furthermore he postponed the lagoon cruise from a perfectly clear day to a not so clear one, which was very regrettable. He also skipped one of the proclaimed snorkeling spots. The good part is the barbecue on a remote motu called Divorce Island... More

The boat is a little small / cramped but this keeps the number of guests limited which is good. Plenty of snorkelling but it is not always easy climbing back onto the boat afterwards. We did the same trip with Te King about 7-8 years ago and remember well having lunch in the water - this time there was a... More

There are multiple options for exploring the lagoon. Don't waste your time with any other one. Teking has obviously spent his entire life in this lagoon, he knows it inside and out. He has his own moorings so you don't have to deal with the other cruises. He is a wealth of knowledge! The whole day was amazing, the color... More

We chose Teking instead of some cheaper boat but the price difference is not so high anyway and it was the best choice because we´ve almost had a privat tour there were just other 2 guys on the boat and it was great to enjoy paradise with more privacy. There was another boats in the lagoon with more people, one... More
