Raro was good... Aitutaki was 10 fold for snorkeling the lagoon! See a few different spots at different depths to get the best of your trip. Go on a Sunday for less 'traffic' out on the water!

If you stay on Aitutaki a Lagoon tour is of course a must. bbc said once, this is the most beautiful lagoon of the world, and they´re probably right. One day we rented a kajak at samade on the beach for our own lagoon-exploring. an other day we made an organised tour to one food island and her island sisters.... More

A trip around the lagoon is a must do in Aitutaki. You cannot beat the turquoise colour of that water. The islands in the lagoon have the best beaches in Aitutaki. Also the snorkelling is amazing

The perfect place to match the imagined paradise in your mind with reality. It does exist here at Aitutaki. We enjoyed a fabulous day escorted by Aitutaki Adventures, in the safe hands of Puna, snorkeling, island hopping, swimming and sight seeing. Local knowledge counts and we had one of the best. A superb lunch provided, witty but low key laconic... More

Went on the yellow boat which was smaller than others we saw, but had excellent snorkelling, beach walks, fish swimming all around you and colours of the water and clouds were magical. An amazing day on a beautiful lagoon.

Words cannot describe the beauty of this lagoon. It is truly breathtaking. The blue is astounding and the water is amazingly clear. There are all sorts of tropical fish and some turtles too!

Loved everything, unbelievably wild and beautiful. One of the most memorable and challenging flyfishing destinations in the world for very large Bonefish and GTs.

My wife & I did this day trip with Teking Cruises and had a suberb day, even though my wife is not a snorkeller. The snorkelling in the clear water was excellent (we had 2 stops, a 3rd was missed as the currents were too strong) and the islands we visited (Honeymoon and Big Foot) were beautiful. The included lunch... More
