My partner and I recently took a day trip into the amazing Aitutaki Lagoon with Puna and his Aitutaki Adventures cruise. I cannot speak highly enough of Puna and his family in the organisation of this day out. It was faultless. Puna knows just the spots to take you to snorkel, avoiding the other lagoon operators. It's a sublime experience.... More

Aitutaki Lagoon is amazing - we had a good day for weather, and saw lots of fish while snorkelling, even a couple of turtles from the boat. Puna is knowledgable, a very proficient skipper, and our lunch buffet was the best food we had on our 7 day holiday. So many options of local produce - just delicious. The tour... More

The bus is little old one, the boat is the oldest in lagoon, but the skipper Mr. Puna is great and the cruise was amazing. He knows lagoon perfect. Big advatage of this cruise is: smaller boat max with 18 pax, own kitchen on One foot island, really great lunch, home made lemon juice on board, fruits, towels and snorchling... More

That was THE DAY with Mr Puna who knows how to avoid the commercial crowd at the most interesting snorkeling spots, His friendly approach, individual care creates great atmosphere at the small group. At lunch time you can have a great chat about local tradition, live and taste fresh and excellent home made buffet.

Went out on a day trip with Puna from Aitutaki Adventures. This a double hulled aluminum boat which makes it very comfortable and stable. It has two sets of steps which makes entering and exiting the water a breeze. Puna takes you to the best places in the lagoon. The most beautiful spots for site seeing and snorkeling. He seems...

What a great way to see the lagoon. You are taken to Honeymoon Island where you an snorkel as long as you want, there is no pressure placed on you to get out at any time. Then on to One Foot Island where the most amazing BBQ awaits.....the food is just amazing. After this, you are taken to another snorkeling... More

I had a fabulous day out with Aitutaki Adventures and Puna. The Lagoon is breath taking and no pictures will ever do it justice. It has to be one of the most magical places one will ever experience, and rates in my book as one of the "Wonders of the World". If you want a small and intimate tour with... More
