A slow wonder around the rim of this beautiful peaceful unspoilt Island. Nature at it's best. The Vaka Cruise staff made sure everyone had a good time, safety first and were all very friendly and polite at all times. Memories that I hope will never fade with age.

Wonderful place to visit, have the stamp in my passport to prove it. Kia orana Cruises with Captain Fantastic as host was excellent. Gave a brief local history of each island visited, which was appreciated.

Stunning island with a great local story to find out about. Small enough to slowly walk around in 15/20 minutes and what can beat walking along a golden sandy beach in tropical waters in and out of the shade of palm trees. Don't forget your passports as you can get them stamped too.

Beautiful story that accompanies a beautiful little island! 20mins to walk around the entire island! Then a refreshing swim in beautiful clear water. Thank you The Vaka Cruise for our stopover. Passports stamped! #beautifulsurroundings!

One Foot Island is a place not to be missed when you cisit Aitutaki. Take any of the available tours (for example the The Vaka Tour) which will take you to this and other islands as well. The place was the location of the Survivor reality show in 2008.

You can get your passport stamped while here - something novel. It takes a couple of minutes....well a minute maybe to walk to other side of Island. Interesting to explore if you have the time and of course you can snorkel and see the clam farm. Well worth a visit.

One Foot Island is likely what you envision when someone says the words, "South Pacific." I remember finding a screen saver of a beautiful beach near crystal blue water with a breezy palm tree back when screen savers were a new thing and way back then, searching to find where it was photographed. Cook Islands was its only identifier, but... More
