For $85 this all day trip is just the best! All refreshments, snacks and the huge bbq lunch is superb. Puna provides the days drinks, snacks, towels, the snorkels and flippers for the trip. The cruise is just so relaxed and Puna does not rush you at all during the day. He takes you to all the best spots on... More

The lagoon trip is an essential if you are visiting the island - the water is the most amazing colour. At $85 for a full day trip including a substantial lunch it is great value for money Captain Puna is good fun and knows the best locations to stop. Would recommed this company to family and friends

I had booked this through Ranginui's Retreat as they believed this was the best tour group for me to go with (more snorkelling than others). The trip cost $85. I was picked up at my accommodation at 9.30 by Puna in an old bus. Then we made our way to the wharf picking up other customers along the way. Puna... More

We can thoroughly recommend going out with Puna his care for the environment as well as his people on his boat. We have been many times and each time you see something different! Fantastic lunch thanks Mrs Puna!

Our day on the beautiful Aitutaki lagoon with Puna was amazing. We have been out with Captain Puna many times and have never been disappointed. Comfortable boat ride, sensational scenery, delicious lunch and snacks, great snorkelling and friendly and entertaining Captain - what more could you want?

We went with Captain Puna for a lagoon trip while we were in Aitutaki. This was the best day out I have had for ages. We saw turtles swimming lazily in front of us, we snorkelled and saw giant clams and 'George' the big Trevally swam round with us. We watched kite surfers and walked on a lovely sand bar... More

Loved our day on the lagoon with Captain Puna. He is incredibly charismatic and makes the experience fun and relaxing at the same time. The snorkelling was also excellent. While some of the lagoon cruises go to seven outer islands, three was definitely enough and allowed us to feel relaxed and without time pressures.The lunch is super delicious!!! I could... More

Fantastic snorkeling! Great lunch on one foot island, very nice food. Captain Puna is the best lagoon cruise operator! He understands that we visit Aitutaki to get away from the time pressure, go-go-go environment of the big smoke. We had the time to explore the underwater world, walk on the islands and enjoy super nice lunch and conversation with newly... More

Captain Puna is the perfect host. He really cares that everyone is comfortable and in terms of both maximising your time with him, getting to see and do what you want for experienced snorkelers as well as snorkelling within your comfort zone for those who aren't as confident swimming. He is the highest rated on the island for a good... More

We took a lagoon cruise tour on May 28 2014. I did a research before our trip and was trying to select the perfect lagoon cruise in Aitutaki. I decided on this one (the yellow boat..he he...). It's about quality vs quantity. This tour has the quality. This tour do not claim to stop at so many islands but I... More
