We were very happy with our experience on Bishop's Cruises. The price was very reasonable ($95 booked through our resort includes snorkeling gear, towel, and lunch) and the two guys running the show were genuine, and had a good balance of funny and professional. They clearly have a good relationship with the big fish at the snorkeling spot, told us... More

A relaxing day on the lagoon started out in the morning with a waterside pickup from our the Aitutaki Lagoon Spa and Resort not 50ft from our bungalow. Cruising the lagoon and visiting islands with commentary about native and modern events was very relaxing. Snorkelling with giant trevally and other tropical fish before lunch on One Foot Island (there is... More

Our host Kimi is a very personable guide. He tells stories that are entertaining and is very kind on a personal feeling level that is not fake for a job. The tour is great. Feeding the giant travail was amazing! Our 3-year old son Reef had a fantastic time too! Thank you!

These guys put on a wonderful cruise tour and were most accomodating. While other services like Kia Orana and Aitutaki Adventures cancelled on us on the day, these guys will take you out when you book with them!! They provide a fantastic lunch and on our last day in Aitutaki, we were cancelled again by various cruises on the Island... More

This is our 3rd or 4th trip out with Bishop's over the years. As usual they didn't disappoint.

We love the local singing...I don't want papa'a music in the Cook Islands...The lunch was amazing and we were starving after an wonderful snorkel...The overall... More

It has already been one year since Dianne and Shane were married on Onefoot Island in the Cook Islands. Thanks to Bishop's Cruses the wedding ceremony and dinner were relaxed, but beautiful; " Heaven on Earth. " To begin our journey together on a tropical island was amazing. We celebrated with family and friends, including Bishop's, with a delicious dinner,... More

This was a brilliant day tour decision. We got to go snorkelling on a couple of different occassions. Marta who is the hostess, was fantastic - friendly, lovely and funny!! Once you arrive at One Foot Island you get a fantastic feed, and then get to wonder or snorkel and see some Giant Clams, and the water is stunning. No... More

A Day to Remember! Enjoyed the whole experience, from the beautiful 360 degree scenery to the lovely meal on One Foot Island. Was amazing seeing the fish,& especially George circling round while out snorkelling. Loved the time on the SandBar and the walk across to One Foot Island. Felt really cared for by the guys and enjoyed the history. Tip... More

We did the whole day Lagoon Tour that started with a waiting period because the honeymooners we picked up from their resort were not ready, but we were entertained by watching the resorts staff combing the beach... Gliding into the Lagoon we were welcomed by the most different shades of blue I've ever seen. The crew told us facts about... More
