Great company and boat tour of Aitutaki lagoon. 3 snorkeling stops that were gorgeous. The BBQ lunch was delicious (especially the grilled banana and tuna). Smaller group than other tour groups (10 people).

The smaller feel of this cruise is what did it for us - When you were out at the snorkelling spots you are not jostling for space amongst a heap of other people. Our group had around 15 so there was plenty of space at...More

Super impressed with this snorkelling tour. We love our snorkelling and have a couple of trips each year in different locations, and this tour is as good as any. Their planning of having buoys in the water that you can follow as a snorkelling trail...More

No restrooms on the boat, not the one we went on anyway - there aren't any shops along the tour. Bottled drinking water is provided free of charge :)
