I was happy to be a part of the Tekking Cruise - they have great stuff, they do small group trips, each snorkeling spot was special, lunch was really tasty, atmosphere easy going. This was the best cruise ever, I 100% recommend it to everyone visiting the island.

A great day out on the lagoon. Had three excellent and varied snorkel sites, a walk on an amazing sandbar to a tiny island, the most amazing & generous healthy lunch, a stop at One Foot Island and then across to the TEAL flying boat stopover base. Teking asked us to do this trip a day early as weather due... More

Our hotel did not offer this trip, we found out about Teking from the Tourist Information Office. From what I saw, the other lagoon cruises were on large boats with lots of passengers. This meant limited access to places, and not very personal. Teking on the other hand, takes small speedboats with small numbers of passengers. We were a group... More

I've done 5 different cruises on this lagoon, and they're all different. I'd say that Teking is very well suited for those people that are 'snorkelling focused'. The boats we were on were large speedboats - great for getting to where you're going quickly, and getting into the water at the great snorkelling locations on the western side of the... More

This tour is not just a tour - it is so much more. Te-King will take you on a journey. Not only will he tell you about the history of Aitutaki, the importance of reef care and the reasons it is not as good as it used to be, he will swim along side you and show you its beauty,... More

TeKing with humor and knowledge of the marine environment provided an educational learning tour of the beautiful turquoise Aitutaki lagoon and everything within. Commendations to Captain Cook who supplemented a great tour with fine island dining cuisine on our very own secluded beach. If you haven't gone on a TeKing Tour, you haven't been to Heaven on Earth - Aitutaki!

We have to thank Te King and his family for making this such a wonderful and memorable experience for us. From the snorkelling, food, swimming, walking, sea life and cultural education to the humorous bad jokes and banter. This lagoon cruise is a definite must do!!!! Sure beats being stuck on a bigger boat with the masses.

My husband is a diver and we have both snorkeled in many places all over the world but with Teking we saw some awesome coral beautiful clams and so many colorful fish. We were on a boat with 7 others and it was perfect. We didn't seemed crowded at all. Teking noticed we all enjoyed snorkeling at our first stop... More
