Mike took us out on the day we landed in Aitutaki for an afternoon fishing adventure - I would recommend it to anyone, especially to get your holiday spirit buzzing. Mike liaised beforehand with our beach bungalow owner so that everything was brilliantly planned for us. He picked us up at our location and took us out from about 1pm... More

My family enjoyed 3 fishing charters with Mike this Sep/Oct. It is easy to see why they are ranked No#1 of things to do in Aitutaki. Mike is very friendly and hospitable and his boat and equipment are awesome too. He was very patient and kind towards our two teenage boys and always giving us options of what we could... More

Absolutely fantastic day spent out snorkelling then fishing! From the outset we found Mere and Mike to be very friendly and genuine people. Both very passionate and experts in there chosen disciplines, providing information about the culture, animal species and Aitutaki freely. The time frame for the day is thorough and can be demanding but Mere and Mike can adapt... More

たまたまBlack Peralにはお世話になり、後にトリップアドバイザーを見て、ああ そうだ大変評判の良い方たちだったのだ と納得しました。 私たちは半日スノーケルへ行きましたが、Mereさんの熱心でありながら、その物腰の柔らかさ、気配りや、(スノーケル後にその都度甘いミントキャンディをくれました(*^^*)) 海の中の生き物の解説(亀も見れましたよ!)、アクシデントへの対応(私のフィンがすっぽ抜けたり(笑))、深く潜る方法を教えてくれたり(誉め上手!) 等々 楽しく、でも穏やかな対応が 本当にプロでした。私はすっかり彼女のファンになりました。私と妹の、難しい日本人の名前をすぐに憶えてしまった事にも驚かされました。 大人数で行く他社のクルーズも悪くはなかったですが(実はとても良かったですが)、Black Pearlが飛び抜けて評判の理由は、恐らくチャーターだからこそ可能になる細やかなサービス、例えば、どういう内容が良いか事前の話し合い、それに見合うベストな場所のチョイス、スノーケルのレベルに合わせた過不足ないサポートやアドバイス、疲れてきた私の母にヌードル(浮き)をくれる等(しかし、希望をこちらからちゃんと伝える必要もあります)や、あるいは上述したようなMereさんの元気で、しかし包み込むようなキャラクターなのではないかと思います。 アフタヌーンティーに、Mereさんがクーラーボックスから取り出したサンドイッチ、フルーツ、ケーキ等々も手作りの温かみが感じられる、美味しいものでした。(思い出して、ほっこりする温かみがあります。) Aitutakiに戻ることがあったなら、間違いなくもう一度参加するだろうと思います。 おすすめです! Thanks so much for your lovely, warm and exciting guide Mere!! We were so fascinated by beautiful fish, clum and Napoleon fish!!! It was trully special experience for my familly and me. Hope see you someday and join your snorkeling tour again!!

Hubby and I enjoyed a private fishing charter on the 17th Sept, 2014 with Mike, aboard the Black Pearl. Mike picked us on time at 6.30am and off we went to catch some live bait, once aboard and after receiving our safety run down it was off to see if we could catch a big one. We are a couple... More

My boyfriend and I just got back from Aitutaki and we loved it. We did the full day snorkeling tour with Mere and Leo. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. Mere is such an enthusiastic and lovely person. She took us to 6 or so different snorkeling locations: 2 outside the reed and 4 or so within the lagoon. We saw many... More

We did a private charter with Mere - she was fantastic and we loved snorkelling with the giant (massive) trevally which were over 1m long. Then exploring all the giant clams that you could literally curl up in if it was possible. Breathtaking snorkelling and very cool island hopping to view the nesting red-tailed tropic birds, plus the must do... More

Previous reviews say it all ...... we are return customers for Mike & Mere at Black Pearl Charters and have nothing but praise for their hospitality and organisation.
