Snorkelling depends on the weather/current conditions. The crew are friendly and all the usual corny jokes are told much to our tourist amusement. The crew have a lot of time for customers and do a great job. The buffet was okay on the island but...More

Had two trips with Bishops on both their large and small boat. Very enjoyable day, much more of a cruise / sightseeing trip than a snorkelling tour. Great lunch on One Foot Island, great crew and some beautiful stops - the old seaplane jetty, sandbar...More

Went with Bishop's from a friend's recommendation. This is a slow moving boat which gives you the ability to soak up how absolutely stunning the Aitutaki Lagoon really is. Did a couple of snorkeling areas, arriving and leaving just before the Vaka Cruise showed up...More

The staff and crew did a fantastic job with our group of 13 people. The service received – from enquiry to tour completion - was warm and welcoming, entertaining yet professional, and very well organised. A must do for anyone visiting Aitutaki.More
