This boat has good shade. Towels and snorkeling gear are provided. Run by locals, and Puna tells funny stories and is sensitive to his clients' needs. The lunch was really good with a range of foods that would cater well to vegetarians and gluten-free. We've been on other boats and thought this was better.

This is our second trip with Aitutaki Adventures. It is a favorite experience for us. We liked the snorkeling and lunch at One Foot Island. Puna is a great captain and gracious host. He provided unlimited water, nice lunch, and mid morning snack. The day was unbelievably beautiful. I liked the sand bars that he let us explore. Thank you... More

This was the highlight of our week at Aitutaki. The boat trip is great and the snorkeling amazing. The lunch on One Foot Island was very tasty. Captain Puna was informative, helpful and friendly.

Great day out - Puna is a natural tour leader - set a relaxing atmosphere. Well explained / informative / never felt rushed & plenty of snorkelling time in this beautiful part of the world. The food & lemon drink was fantastic - BBQ tuna - yum! We recommend this lagoon cruise & will book back again when we return... More

We booked with Aitutaki Adventures as they were the only ones going out on the day we wanted and we also heard they were one of the only tours that went to honeymoon island and were much recommended by locals, and we can see why! Puna was great and showed us so much of the lagoon. We got to see... More

Our third time on Puna's cruise, and we are reminded of why we keep coming back. This is easily our favourite cruise company on the island. Puna is very down to earth and simply let's you enjoy your day on the lagoon. No antics, and very humble. The boat itself is large and comfortable, with lots of place to put... More

Puna and the family obviously love their home in paradise and go the extra mile to make this a special day to remember. The day is planned well so it doesn't feel full or rushed at all, but you see more and do more than Bishops Lagoon tour that we did. The snorkelling before and again after lunch is just... More

We booked with Aitutaki Adventures for two days before we were scheduled to leave Aitutaki - they were very highly recommended by our hotel and by our fellow trip advisor reviewers, so we were excited for the outing. At 8:30AM on the morning of our scheduled trip, they called our hotel and cancelled - apparently they won't conduct a tour... More

The most fantastic day out on the stunning Aitutaki Lagoon with a very professional guide and host. Puna knows the Lagoon like the back of his hand and avoids the other snorkelling groups to give his own group the best opportunity and relative privacy, on the lagoon. The lunch, served on One Foot Island was out of this world. We... More
