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

The lagoon itself is absolutely awesome. If you love snorkeling and coral reefs, you must do the lagoon. The Teking staff, however is totally rude and ignorant. I've never heard more sexist and ignorant jokes in my life. You will not be told that you have to pay for water and drinks on board until you disembark. Giving it three... More

This tour is for sure number 1 activity on the island. Great snorkeling locations, well planned itinerary and well appreciated respect to the nature. Great Barrier Reef in AU is no longer so great, but if Teking continues to deliver his tours in the way he does, Aitutaki reef will stay beautiful. Just to add some background: I don't know... More

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.

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.
