“Hang the expense!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

You only live once and this is a place to go. We stayed 5 nights in Aitutaki. One day we went on a lagoon cruise. The lagoon cruises all pretty much go to the same places. You know when you look at a brochure and think it has been photoshopped? The shades of blue were amazing. I hope this place remains preserved.
Such lovely people. Don't miss the CICC church service on a Sunday.

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

We went with a group of friends on Bishops Lagoon cruise for the day. You really can't go to Aitutaki without going on one of these cruises. The beach at Aitutaki itself is beautiful but out on the smaller islands and One Foot Island is a whole different level of beauty. We stopped for snorkelling and they provide lunch and towels also. I would have paid hundreds for this cruise yet it only cost $85.
Most amazing place i've ever seen. Must do.

“Absolutely paradise”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

The lagoon was stunning. I loved to sit in my sun lounger at the Samade and just watch the changing hues. It was pristine. However, the very best way to see the lagoon is to get to the outer motus on a lagoon cruise. The snorkelling and remote motus were stunning.

“Paradise!!!!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

One of the most beautiful places we have ever been to.

The day trip flew us there from Rarotonga, then drove us around the island, stopping the the 3 stores they have.

Then the boat took us out into the middle of the lagoon, where we got to snorkel, while lunch was cooked for us.

We also got to walk around the small island where a series of survivor was filmed.

Don't forget to take your passport, to get stamped on One Foot Island.
