Puna, thank you for an extraordinary day in your extraordinary back yard! I am a tour operator myself and it was a pleasure to be treated to a brilliant day which was both so professional and yet so personally presented. You showed us the lagoon in a way we could all enjoy, from beginner snorkelers to the more advanced. And... More

I spent the day out with Captain Puna on the full day Aitutaki Adventures lagoon cruise. It was the best $99 I think I've spent in a very long time. We were picked up promptly in the morning and headed out to our first snorkelling spot. After 16 years of running these cruised, captain Puna knows the lagoon inside and... More

Puna and his sons did an excellent job showing the group around the lagoon and then providing an excellent lunch on one foot island. Unfortunately when we went out it was windy which made snorkelling difficult so we had to go to some alternate locations. Regardless it was still a great day out. We choose this tour because it was... More

This boat has good shade. Towels and snorkeling gear are provided. Run by locals, and Puna tells funny stories and is sensitive to his clients' needs. The lunch was really good with a range of foods that would cater well to vegetarians and gluten-free. We've been on other boats and thought this was better.

This is our second trip with Aitutaki Adventures. It is a favorite experience for us. We liked the snorkeling and lunch at One Foot Island. Puna is a great captain and gracious host. He provided unlimited water, nice lunch, and mid morning snack. The day was unbelievably beautiful. I liked the sand bars that he let us explore. Thank you... More

This was the highlight of our week at Aitutaki. The boat trip is great and the snorkeling amazing. The lunch on One Foot Island was very tasty. Captain Puna was informative, helpful and friendly.

Great day out - Puna is a natural tour leader - set a relaxing atmosphere. Well explained / informative / never felt rushed & plenty of snorkelling time in this beautiful part of the world. The food & lemon drink was fantastic - BBQ tuna - yum! We recommend this lagoon cruise & will book back again when we return... More

We booked with Aitutaki Adventures as they were the only ones going out on the day we wanted and we also heard they were one of the only tours that went to honeymoon island and were much recommended by locals, and we can see why! Puna was great and showed us so much of the lagoon. We got to see... More

Our third time on Puna's cruise, and we are reminded of why we keep coming back. This is easily our favourite cruise company on the island. Puna is very down to earth and simply let's you enjoy your day on the lagoon. No antics, and very humble. The boat itself is large and comfortable, with lots of place to put... More
