This is the second time we have been on this tour and it really is brilliant. Lawton Storey that owns the boat and takes the tour is a wealth of knowledge, he makes the day informative as well as fun.
The first time a couple of years ago we just took the tour as part of a group, this time we chartered the boat for the day so that it was just our family. Which was really cost effective and a great way to spend the day together as a family.
Lawton takes you outside the reef to find the turtles and if you are lucky enough the whales, then it is back in to spend some time snorkelling. Such a wonderful array of colourful fish. From here it is a visit to the outer islands a stop at One Foot and Honeymoon, along with the opportunity to walk around Mania and see the wonderful birdlife while Lawton prepares your lunch back on the boat.
If Lawton can prepare such a feast on a boat I would be in awe of what he could do in a fully equipped kitchen. Wondeful barbequed Tuna, curried pawpaw, salads, arrowroot, breads, donuts, fresh pawpaw, star fruit and other fruits. Absolutely delightful and even plenty of food for a picky eater like my father. In fact we were all so full that we couldnt eat any dinner that night! You would have thought Lawton was catering for 20 of us rather than our family of 6.
My parents are in their 70's and Lawton was great with making sure they felt comfortable and helping them with their snorkelling equipment and getting in and out of the boat.
It is a full day tour and worth every penny. This would be a must do on our list each time we return to the beautiful island of Aitutaki.
