We chose Teking for our Aitutaki Lagoon cruise and were not disappointed. Our desire was for lots of snorkeling and our desire was fulfilled! We had three snorkeling stops on our tour, all very different. All had many fish, one had oysters and giant clams, and another featured many purple coral. Each snorkeling stop was about 45 minutes long.

Before our lunch break, we were let off at the tip of Honeymoon Island for the obligatory walk across this mostly sand island. Teking and his boat picked us up at the other end. A great leisurely walk with no rush.

And lunch on Maina Island---Wow! The freshest tastiest grilled tuna we have ever tasted! Along with a variety of salads, sausage for the non-fish eaters, and fruit. Beer/Soda available for purchase. Optional for those with adventure: Lunch in the water on a picnic bench, patio umbrella shading you from the sun—fun and unique experience. The fish swim at your feet, waiting for a discarded morsel.

Time on One Foot Island was about a half hour or so, just right for us since we were not looking for beach time (we had enough of that at our resort), but was just long enough to explore a bit and enjoy the view/sights.

Teking’s boat is small, only about 10 or so passengers, so if you are looking for a boat to stretch and relax, choose a different operator. Teking’s trip is about snorkeling and learning about the Aitutaki Lagoon, the boat is just the transportation. And as to learning about the Lagoon, Teking is the King of knowledge!!

We had a great cruise with Teking, an excellent choice for those wanting an emphasis on snorkeling and less time on One Foot than the other operators.

We went out with Teking for the Lagoon Tour and at first we were hesitant as his boats looked smaller than the rest, but I guarantee, a more fun time could not be had! We went to five different islands, and Teking was so knowledgeable about... well... everything! He even spotted a Napoleon Wrasse from the boat and a few of us jumped in to witness this beautifully large fish swim through the water. He took us to amazing spots and we saw giant clams, purple and pink coral, beautiful fish that we had fed (and I couldn't resist reaching out and petting them), and beach so beautiful it could bring you to tears.

The lunch portion was fantastic as well. We went to a very secluded island with no one else around, and ate a delicious BBQ'd lunch with local foods on picnic benches in the water! It was amazing!!

I highly recommend Teking's tour. He was friendly, fun, informational and educational.
