The best two days of our stay - awesome day fishing (Mahimahi) with Mike on the boat and then amazing lagoon trip and snorkel dives with Mere. Easy people to be with and Mere's lunches were superb.

We took 3 solo charters with Mike on the Black Pearl and it was well worth it - even if we didn't score any notable fish. Mike was happy to basically do anything we wanted - game fishing, blue water spearfishing, snorkelling, whatever. Mike is a friendly character and experienced and he made sure he did everything humanly possible to... More

Spent 2 days fishing with Mike and had the best time. Caught my largest fish to date (15kg Yellow fin Tuna) with Mike's fantastic help, also got to see my first Marlin close up. Even though the sea was unusually rough for Aitutaki I was not worried one bit as Mike is a brilliant Captain and truly dedicated fisherman, felt... More

Mere and her team made our half day snorkeling adventure very enjoyable. We packed a lot into the time and it gave us an idea of which areas we would like to explore again.

We had a great time fishing with Mike, and we caught plenty of yellow fin tuna. As my first time deep sea fishing, Mike was fantastic and he loves fishing and watching people fish, and helped show me how to reel one in while I had a 16 kg yellow fin tuna on the line! All the reviews of Mike... More

The day out on the lagoon with Mere was a highlight of my trip to Aitutaki. Awesome snorkelling, swimming as well as lunch on One Foot Island (the most stunning place I've ever seen) it was just a really fabulous, relaxing, exciting experience. I'd highly recommend Black Pearl Charters to anyone visiting Aitutaki. Thank you for a fantastic day.

We did a half day fishing and a half day snorkel with Mike and Mere and I couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. We didn't have much luck with the big fish, but Mike knows just were to go to make sure you catch something. He even cleaned it and sent us home with dinner! We also had... More

We recently had two awesome days fishing with Mike on Black Pearl. Mikes local knowledge put us on the fish both days. This epic action, coupled with great company and amasing home made breakfasts and lunches made our time on Black Pearl the highlight of our trip to the Cook islands. Thanks again Mike, and we'll be sure to see... More
