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

Amazing snorkeling with beautiful fish, great lunch and swimming in crystal clear water, walking on islands like Honeymoon and One Foot. Aitutaki Lagoon is the most beautiful place we've been to.

We went on a trip with Teking in September and it was just great! We were only 6 people on the boat and stopped in amazing snorkeling spots. We had a delicious lunch on a nice little island. The Aitutaki lagoon is the most beautiful place I've ever been. Don't miss a lagoon cruise with Teking!

Walk on picture postcard Honeymoon Island followed by Best BBQ lunch on nearby mosquito free Maina Island. Don't forget to take your passport to be stamped by Teking on One Foot Island. The whole experience is better in small group and with... More

This was my 4th lagoon trip but first with Teking loved his humour, knowledge of the lagoon, marine life and plant's. Lunch was tasty and we enjoyed the small size of our tour. With only 7 it was an excellent day out. Would highly recommend this trip to others.

We had so much fun last year we just had to come back and do it again. Teking took us out to 4 different places to snorkel. We saw beautiful coral and lots of fish. We also got to see the giant clams. He cares a lot about the reefs and coral and tells you about them and how we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day of snorkelling with Teking. Contrary to what others have said, we didn’t find him condescending at all – in fact, it was quite the opposite. We had a small group of 10 and Teking was very informative about the lagoon, motus and reefs. The snorkelling areas we visited were wonderful and a sight to see.... More
