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.

The family business is one that prides itself on a fun, relaxed but professional tour service. The location is stunning and the crew take every opportunity to point out the attractions. The food is local and yummy. We had previously used this business and the excellence continued and lived up to our memories and expectations.

We had a small group (four couples) and therefore a small boat which was great as we got to talk and interact with everyone. We were also able to get to a lot more places than a bigger boat couldn't. Great snorkeling and a great lunch. Knowledgeable helpful friendly staff.

The lagoon cruise was amazing! The guides told us interesting facts about the islands, plants and fish. We sailed first to the Akaiami island, then snorkelled in the lagoon with giant trevally, the guides dropped us on sand bar and went to the island to prepare the food. It was simply delicious. Later on, we had another hour or so... More

We went out around March 10/2015. It was a gray cloudy day and a lot of times it poured rain. Pacific Resort Aitutaki arranged this cruise for us. Cost was around $100.00NZ p/p including hotel pick up and drop off, lunch and the cruise which lasted about 5-6 hrs. Each stop was a reasonable length of time and you were... More

The weather in Aitutaki was perfect. We had pre-booked a half day boat trip on the lagoon with Bishop's Cruises, aboard the Jaguar - an ample sized speedboat we had all to ourselves. The cost for two people including lunch was very reasonable. Our boat picked us up from the Aitutaki Lagoon Spa & Resort - right off the beach... More
