Teking was very knowledgeable and gave a good rundown on cultural and local issues throughout the day. The pace was very good, plenty of time to snorkel and explore around snorkeling sites and Honey moon island. Teking checked the weather conditions regularly and tailored the cruise to look after the welfare of his customers on a very trying day with... More

First the good. Beautiful snorkeling. Honeymoon island is a must. Being in the Cook Islands wouldn't be the same if you miss this. Now the additional detail's. TeKing- from whom I believe is the chief operator if not owner prides himself on being a bully. He goes out of his way to instigate fights. For instance "Jack" look at how... More

It was awesome. This was the second of two lagoon cruises during our weeklong trip, and we were so extremely glad that we went on this one! At the end of the day, we thought wow...imagine what we would have missed out on if we hadn't come out today. Our first Aitutaki snorkelling excursion, on a much bigger and slower... More

Hands down the best tour on the Aitutaki, especially if you don't want to be on a boat all day. You'll get to see all the main islands, with the knowledgeable and passionate Teking as your guide; unbeatable!

Knowledgeable, friendly staff who were very safety conscious and accommodated our various levels of confidence and ability in the water. The trip was well organised from pick up to drop off. Amazing BBQ lunch. We visited three different snorkelling locations and all agreed it was top notch

From pickup to drop off we had an amazing time. Teking and his staff were all super friendly, with the former having a wonderful sense of humour. He knows a lot about the local history and local aquatic life and is more than happy to share. The fish we swam with were absolutely monstrous and the 3 spots we snorkelled... More

To start with the lagoon is beautiful so really your day is still going to be incredible just being out on the lagoon. What i am not happy about though is for the price of the tour (expensive!!!!!) and the staff attitude towards their guests is horrible. Teking was not available when we went on this tour so we were... More
