We did the Te King Aitutaki Lagoon trip and it was amazing. We visited three snorkelling spots - each was slightly different but absolutely amazing.

Snorkelling cruises great. Markets small. Friendly locals and very little road traffic compared to Rarotonga. Plenty to do with biking around island and walking to high points. Better swimming and snorkelling in lagoon compared to Rarotonga.

Just let drive you by the sun, the times of eating, sipping a drink, reading - not to forget the sun blocker and the camera!

I have visited Aitutaki lagoon many times and am always blown away by its incredible beauty and peacefulness. This is the most blue and clearest water that one can see. The local folk are all friendly - this is a MUST visit!
