Snorkeling with them was amazing. Great boat captain and guide. The snorkeling was absolutely beautiful. The giant clams were the highlight for us. We did three different snorkels and then they cooked a great lunch on one of the little islands. We ended with a short stay on one foot island. We will be doing a second trip with them... More

This was the Highlight of our trip, Teking was the best, we had so much fun that day. The snorkeling was amazing, the food (thank you cook) was fabulous, and everyone had such an awesome day, and I was so impressed he even has a few prescription masks if you usually wear glasses, just those little extra's make a huge...

We had heard a lot about Te King and his snorkelling tours so our expectations were high...and we certainly not disappointed! When we got there we were at first upset to learn that Te King himself was not going to take the tour, but we needn't have worried as his son 'Captain Oops' filled his spot more than adequately!!! He... More

Brilliant Day Superb Captain and Crew Incredible food Words can not describe the snorkelling, coral reefs and the fish. The beaches were post card perfect.

We booked a private excursion with Teking Tours -- I want to say it was amazing -- and it was! But there were some problems. We did the Snorkeling Safari Cruise, a 7 hour tour which includes 3 snorkels, four motus, and lunch. It cost NZ $125 per person, paid in advance. At the time we booked that came to... More

We had a great day with Teking tours. If you want a large boat with an on board bar / shower and toilet, then this is not the tour for you - pick one of the big boats. If however you want a more personalised day and the best snorkelling opportunities in the lagoon then Teking tours is fantastic. You... More

Teking lagoon cruises experience was everything we expected. With a smaller boat and less people we could go to places bigger ones can't. Cruise included lot of time being able to snorkle (three locations). The lunch was the best of our eight days stay in Aitutaki. Our guide (Captain No-good ;)) was great, my kind of guy! He gave us...

I would highly recommend this cruise for those who like getting in the water and seeing fish, coral and clams. It's a whole day affair: pickup at 9am, back on land at 4pm, covering most of Aitutaki lagoon. The guides are very knowledgeable. Just bring togs, sunscreen, passport: towels, drinks, lunch are provided. Remove any rings. Bring a waterproof camera.... More

Taking picked was recommended to us by our host as he provides a great fun day out with small tour groups. We had only 7 on our boat which made the day very personal and loads of fun. Teking picked us up on time from our accommodation in his very new van and transferred us to the boat. He made... More

We read the reviews of Teking so were to be possibly offended by his jokes - we weren't at all! We had a great time - wonderful lunch, excellent snorkeling and beautiful scenery with a much smaller group than you deal with on the larger cruises - highly recommend it!
