“Beyond beautiful”
Review of Kia Orana

Kia Orana

Attraction details
Owner description: 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 did a day tour to Aitutaki with Air Rarotonga which although not cheap was well worth while. Arrived at the Island after a 40 minute flight with water, tea/coffee. Our tour on the island was not as expected due to the downpour of rain in town but the running commentary of our tour guides kept us all in fits of laughter! On reaching the jetty and boarding the boat onto the lagoon we could not believe the lovely colour of the water and beautiful white sandy beaches although one island we landed on the sandflies loved us. After a great snorkel (gear all provided) seeing clams and wonderfully coloured fish a yummy lunch was served with fresh fish, veges and fruit. Beverages were reasonably priced as well. Landed on another island which we walked around viewing sea snakes and crabs. A full day trip visiting a very beautiful island

Kia Orana cruises took us to about 5 islands in the lagoon. The operator, Andrew, was relaxed, and went with the flow. If we wanted to snorkel for longer - no problem. The food that was prepared on Honeymoon Island was extraordinarily good, and he took us to good spots to snorkel.
Highly recommended.

Went with Kia Orana cruises late november 2009. Captain Fantastic really lived up to his name. Funny guy and a great storyteller. The best part was that we went to the islands before the "big boats" so we got the islands for ourselves. The lunch was awsome. Fresh grilled fish and a lot of fruit and vegetables. And the snorkelling was great! Will recommend Kia Orana cruises to other visitors of wonderful Aitutaki.

My husband & I have just returned from Aitutaki in the Cook Islands. One of the highlights was the Day Cruise n the beautiful Lagoon with Kia Orana Cruises. The trip was with a Father & Son team visiting 4 islands with a beautiful traditional lunch & guitar playing which was just beautiful. Thankyou Kison & Edmund we had a wonderful day. The snorkelling in the Lagoon with thousands of fish & Giant Clams was truly awesome!!
