The lagoon tour was the highlight of my 10 day holiday to Rarotonga and Aitutaki. The cruise was scenic and stunning .... snorkelling with the fish was the BEST and you got to tough the big fish as they swam past you ... amazing!!!!! We then stopped for lunch on Foot Island and had the yummiest BBQ fish and salad... More

We recently had our wedding on One Foot Island, and Bishops organised it for us. They were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, everything ran smoothly, and overall it was the best day of our lives. We had 6 guests with us, and had dinner afterwards at Aitutaki Village. Everyone had a blast, and we can’t thank the Bishop family,... More

We were so glad Aitutaki Village arranged a cruise for us with these guys! Had a beautiful day out on the boat visiting One Foot island, snorkelling, having a picnic lunch. The crew really created a fun atmosphere, too.

Annie and her daughters organized the perfect wedding for my brother & sister-in-law on One Foot Island. Everything went perfectly and to plan - even the weather! There were islander musicians, a lovely celebrant, champagne & cake, flowers, coconuts, photography and the most magical location on Earth. Thank you Annie for making this day a memory to treasure. You are... More

Informative and easily approachable staff. They can drop you off on a safe sand bar and walk to One Foot Island which besides the snorkeling near large coral is the highlight of the journey besides their excellent food!!

Our lagoon trip was so fantastic, I would have gone again if our visit was longer. The water is gorgeous. Our family with 2 children ages 8 and 11 all had the best time! The island and water are beautiful. The staff was very accommodating. The buffet lunch was fresh grilled tuna, pasta and heaps of salads! There was so... More

The Bishops Cruise to One Foot Island is one of the most memorable days out I have ever had, it is truly amazing !! The Staff are very helpful and passionate about their job, lunch is included but you need to pay for drinks on board the boat. We first stopped off at another island, Rapota which is a beautiful...

We loved Bishops! We went on a lagoon day cruise and did some snorkelling in the stunning lagoon and then opted for the "honeymoon" option where you get dropped off alone (away from the broader group) on a smaller island for 2-3 hours with a picnic basket and some sparkling wine/beer. The price was right and it was honestly one... More

We took an all day cruise to One Foot Island and had a great day out. The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't know that we had to bring cash to buy drinks, even for lunch (which was included) but they kindly let us pay when they dropped us back to our hotel.

Our experience with Bishops Cruises was okay, but it lacked a personal feel. The crew didn't seem very passionate about their job and a little disinterested in their guests. I felt more like a number with this cruise operator. Although the Aitutaki lagoon itself is truly spectacular and memorable... the same can't be said for Bishops Cruises.
