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

This was our first attempt at deep sea fishing. Mike made it interesting and accessible even for inexperienced anglers. He really looks after his guests making sure you get the most out of your time with him. I caught my first ever fish within seconds of casting our line. A 5kg yellow fin tuna which Mike cleaned and filleted for... More

I went for an afternoon charter, Mike is a really nice guy and knows the spots and techniques. I hooked a nice 27kg tuna and while drilling, the couple next to me hooked a small one as well. Unfortunately they've lost it right at the boat so the poor guys had to wait two hours until my fish gave up... More

My husband, and his son, spent an wonderful half day fishing with Mike from Black Pearl Fishing. They found Mike's enthusiasm amazing. Facilities and his boat were all great, and at the end of the day the fish they caught, yellow fin tuna, was delivered to our resort by Mere, Mike's wife - sashimi, marinated steaks and plain steaks......YUMMY...the boys...
