One of our best days on Aitutaki was with Mere (and Leo) on a lagoon cruise. We were picked up and dropped off at our accommodation, spent the day on their lovely boat, and able to choose how long we stayed at each snorkelling and lunch spot. Mere is a wealth of knowledge and such a lovely person. The snorkelling... More

Talk about sensory overload! The snorkelling, the charter, the sights, the knowledge. This was without a doubt the most amazing experience of our holiday in Aitutaki. the fish, SO MANY! The water was crystal clear, the snorkelling fun and safe and we were guided by Mere, who has an intimate knowledge and love affair with this incredible lagoon. Honeymoon Island,... More

We went out with Mike in the morning and my partner caught a 20+ kg yellow fin tuna, which he was stoked with. I caught a needle nosed something or other, and a bird! Dumb thing tried to steal my fish I caught and I ended up with it hooked and no fish. I call it the boobie prize. Then... More

Mike is amazing! From the very start you knew he would let you do as much or little as you like... letting us get in on the live bait round up, and givins us all the details of what we were up to. Safety was good and thorough with a quick run through of the boat and how to drive... More

My husband and father in law had a great morning fishing with Mike and caught a yellow fin tuna each. Mike and his wife Mere are lovely friendly people and the catch was delivered back to our hotel at 5 pm all ready to be cooked and enjoyed. Could highly recommend .

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay on Aitutaki to celebrate his 40th birthday. One of the main highlights of our trip was the mix and match full day charter we booked with Black Pearl Fishing Charters. Mike and Mere were great hosts and so much fun to spend the day with. We started the day... More

My husband went on an early morning fishing trip with Black Pearl and had a great time. Between the two of them they caught 7 big yellow fin tuna.  We were however a little dissapointed with the pieces of fish we got delivered later in the afternoon. The pieces were many but small and not "steak like". I recommend you... More

We had second trip out fishing with Mike a few weeks ago. Apart from being such a nice genuine guy he is also great at finding fish. My partner caught 3 Tuna while I let a Mahi Mahi and a Tuna go - not on purpose I can tell you!! Mike's wife Mere makes excellent bacon and egg rolls and... More
