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!

These boats are smaller than the other cruises so have less passengers and are able to get to more locations. We had 3 snorkelling stops and saw incredible fish, coral and giant clams. The BBQ lunch was a highlight with the best chicken and papaya salad we ate on our trip.

I went to Aitutaki for a couple of days with my partner. Before that I had a deep look at which cruise could be the best in this idyllic island. I opted for Teking Cruise and - oh my god - I didn't regret it one second. "The King" came to pick us up in our resort, at time and... More

IF you want to see loads of fish, spend more time IN the water looks at those fish then TEKIN LAGOON CRUISES is the one to go on. Intimate (ie: small exclusive group rather than huge crowd) and you get to snorkel your hearts content AND you get to see the biggest fish and clams..... also an amazing lunch, every... More

Absolutely fantastic. The guides are hilarious, personable and highly professional. The lunch was top notch and featured all the fruits of the island. The tour stopped at a number of different islands and took us for some incredible snorkeling. Definitely the best snorkeling I've ever done. The spots he took us to included giant clams, purple coral, clown fish and... More

This was the second time we have been with Teking Lagoon cruise and we'd do it again in a flash. You are picked up from your accommodation and taken to the wharf where you are fitted with snorkel and fins before you take off. With a commentary about the reef and lagoon as you travel, you have good background information.... More

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
