We were on island with the Paul Gaugain and we were hesitant to do the group tours with the rest of the cruise passengers. Bishop did a phenomenal job of organizing a group of 35 passengers and the overall experience was off the charts. There were so many fish, I could barely see through them. That was until a 50...

We had fairly high expectations after reading the brochure but these were surpassed. It was a perfect day. The beauty of the lagoon, the friendly relaxed crew, snorkelling, amazing lunch.... Serenaded by ukeles on our way home.... Highly recommended.

Given a guided tour around the lagoon with music from the crew when there was a break in the narration. Had an hour snorkelling and enjoying the beautiful fish and swimming with the giant trevally. Got dropped off... More

The trip to Aitutaki was a short one, just 4 days / 3 nights. The island is stunning, primarily because of the colour and quality of the water and beaches, all enclosed in the wonderful Aitutaki lagoon. The very best day for us was spent in the lagoon on the fabulous Bishops tour cruise boat. This is a comfortable, two... More

Wonderful lagoon cruise. Nice, comfortable boat, great staff, fantastic lunch on a beautiful island. The Aitutaki lagoon is the most beautiful place I have ever been, and this cruise was a lovely introduction. A fun day with music from the staff and great snorkeling. Very convenient departure point if staying at Samade, which we were, because the boat leaves from... More

Who else but the aptly named Bishops to take you to heaven on earth. Captain Awesome and his crew of one (John) took us on one of their smaller boats on an island hopping/snorkelling 6 hour expedition in the Aitutaki Lagoon. John was absolutely fantastic, as my son had not gone snorkelling before and he was right there with him... More

We were asked what we were here for and we all agreed it was the snorkelling so he made that our priority, very kind and thoughtful I thought. We didnt miss out on... More

On a day that started out wet and overcast, the crew at bishops delivered a fantastic day for my self and fellow passengers. Led capably by the enthusiastic Captain Awesome, I experienced a fantastic 6 hours cruise around the aitutaki lagoon. The trip included a great musical accompaniment to keep us entertained. The snorkelling for an hour was awesome with... More
