About Kia Orana
We invite you to book a Kia Orana morning or afternoon speedboat cruise (for up to 10 people) when you come to Aitutaki. Whether you are an individual or a couple, a wedding party, or a group of friends, cruising around the Lagoon and visiting One Foot Island, and Honeymoon Island is one of the most memorable things to do in the whole of the Pacific. We cruise to what we call "the seven wonders of paradise", and every island has something special to see and experience.

We toured with Kia Orana on both legs of our South Pacific cruise on the Paul Gauguin. We had done this tour 11 years ago and couldn't wait to return again. Our guide both times was Sean the son of the owner who took us around the last time. The tour included stops on motu's around the lagoon, snorkeling in the crystal clear water and lunch on their private motu prepared by our guide. They couldn't be nicer and being out on the water in the lagoon is the perfect way to enjoy this place. We have now been with them three times and I think it gets better each time.

We were recommended this company by our resort. We were not disappointed. Picked up from our resort by Shaun aka Captain Useless. Eight islands visited with 20 minutes at most of them and longer for 2 snorkelling areas. We had a beautiful BBQ lunch all prepared by Shaun with a sing along and a coconut husking demo. The colour changes in the ocean were stunning and the huge amount of big tuna and other fish and giant clams was just unbelievable. We also got our passports stamped at one foot Island for $2.50 NZD each. Its a full day and we were dropped back at our resort. We choose this company because of the amount of islands they do and the size of the group they take around 10 to 12.Top our list for things to do highly recommended this company. Thank you for making our holiday a blast on Aitutaki

We had a great day out with Captain Fantastic in Aitutaki. We saw 7 most beautiful islands, snorkled in 2 spots, saw some huge and lots of colourful tropical fish in beautiful turquoise water. Captain Fantastic is very entertaining, he cooked us a great lunch, sang to us and we also had flax basket weaving demo and coconut huskin demo. We can't recommend this day out highly enough with Captain Fantastic to get the Island experience in this most beautiful lagoon.
