Perfect day experiencing the Lagoon

Thank you to Mere and Leo for a wonderful afternoon with friends on the lagoon. Swimming, snorkeling, and a stroll on one foot and honeymoon islands.

My husband and I went out fishing with Mike and had an absolutely sensational day. Mike was fantastic company, he was very professional, friendly, courteous, extremely helpful, fun and great to chat to. He is also very knowledgeable about the area and works hard to find the fish for anglers. We couldn't have asked for a better day out and... More

My husband and I booked half day charter with the Black Pearl. Mike was a fantastic host and extremely knowledgable about his surroundings on land and water. We had a blast catching and learning about the fish within the area. Mike is a fabulous representation of the kind, generous, friendly people of Aitutaki and he should be proud of the... More

Six members of my family (including my 17 year adventurous son and 74 year visually impaired mother) were so lucky to be able to go on the snorkel tour in the lagoon with the Black Pearl. We were the only people on the tour and we received a wonderful personal guide around the lagoon learning about the Cook Island history,... More

One of us had an unfortunate accident while on Aitutaki, so we had to cancel our scheduled all day fishing trip. A few days later we were accommodated on a four hour "tiki tour" of the islands in the lagoon. Leo was a great skipper with lots of stories and info, and Mike and Mere were heroes when they rescued... More

We ended up going out twice, since the first time it was a little rough and our two children (ages 6 and 3) refused to get in the water even though we loved it ... argh. They scaffolded the experience for them as best they could with pool noodles and shallow areas ... but to no avail. A whole different... More

This was our first time to the Cook Islands and what a great day (mix and match charter) it was to spend with Mike, Mere and Leo!!! First thing in the morning Mike came and picked us up from our resort right on time and it was off fishing. Even in the most undesirable conditions (for my wife anyway), Mike... More

Mike and Mere will go out of their way to make everything suit your needs. We spent one half day snorkelling with Mere and Leo then two half days fishing with Mike. The snorkelling is just incredible and having Mere in the water with us sharing her knowledge means you get to see and learn so much more. The weather... More

This is the second time I've travelled to Aitutaki specifically to fish with Mike - I keep coming back because he works incredibly hard to keep you on the fish all day. The food provided is great (and plentiful!), and the experience is nothing short of amazing. Mike knows the island and reef incredibly well, and is always able to... More
