Went on a lagoon snorkelling tour with Teking. 20 of us on a small (ish) boat. This trip is primarily focussed on snorkelling and (we think) is the best if that’s what you’re looking for. If you want a sightseeing cruise around the lagoon there...More

We went on a snorkel tour with Tekking two days ago and have nothing but good things to report. It was an excellent tour, and was led by Tekking himself. First off, the weather in Aituatiki right now really leaves a lot to be desired....More

We had a blast with Captain Shaka and crew in one of the most beautiful lagoons on earth. Captain Shaka was so accommodating to our very inexperienced young family. We made several stops to snorkel and had lunch on an uninhabited island. We saw turtles...More

No restrooms on the boat, not the one we went on anyway - there aren't any shops along the tour. Bottled drinking water is provided free of charge :)
