Once our guide got over his grumpy mood we had an amazing day. As there were only 8 on our tour we went on a small boat which, I think, was an advantage. However don't expect any luxury as all very basic. The weather was overcast and at time was drizzling however this was a blessing as I imagine we... More

Just 7 of us on this excursion, and one guy elected not to snorkel. We were picked up on time, and headed off to our 1st motu stop for a stroll on the beach there. Then we headed to our first snorkel stop, and as we anchored the boat, we could see the giant trevalley coming round, guess they've been... More

By far the highlight of the trip to Aitutaki. It sure is worth the money. Bishops was cheaper compared to the Vaka cruise. If the money dose not bother I would take the Vaka but I don’t regret my decision to take the Bishop cruise as I got to visit the Maina(Honeymoon island) aswell. Make sure you specifically ask for...

My husband and I booked a private all day charter and loved it! We had been looking at several companies and their price was by far the most reasonable for what we got. They picked us up on time and we were in our boat about 10 minutes after we were picked up. Our guide was amazing. Full of local... More

Bishops cruises is a warm, lovely family run company. Annie is a great and lovely lady who will take care of you and will give a great time. Sure the boat is not very big but it will take you everywhere. The best cruise company on Aitutaki

We had a private charter boat around the lagoon for the morning. It was amazing. Our guide and driver was so friendly and very knowledgeable and happy to share stories about the island and immerse us in the culture and the beautiful surrounds. Everything we wanted was provided and he took us to all the best spots on the lagoon.... More

We did a Bishop's Day cruise and had a great time. The ride out was fun, the boat was nice, the water is just amazing, such a pristine blue colour (no filter needed!!). We had a cool time snorkeling around with some massive fish and enjoying the water, lunch was at One Foot Island where they put on a really... More

Their best offers are the day-long cruise to One Foot Island and the private charter: -One Foot Island cruise: This is the way to go for Families or peoeple who seeks a completely slow peaced experience. Amazing views, and possibility to stamp passports on the island. Cool experience. -Private Charter: This should be the choice for honeymooners! You get for... More

Despite the weather limiting snorkelling to Onefoot Island, it was still a very pleasant way to spend a day with a simple but tasty BBQ lunch prepared by the crew and the walk through the water to the Heaven Sand Bar.
