I personally never stepped a foot on Mikes' boat....but my husband....son and his girlfriend went out on an all day charter...they caught too many species for me to list....the chef at the Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa crumbed and grilled some Wahoo for us....turned some tuna into yummy sashimi...it was to die for... Mike does every kind of fishing....live baiting...reef....goes... More

This review is delayed - very delayed. We enjoyed our experience with Black Pearl Charters in Nov. '14 but were reminded of our experience after hearing of another couple's awesome time. We originally went out with Mike, an amazing, down to earth, friendly man who made us feel welcome and comfortable immediately. Unfortunately the ocean didn't deliver us a fish... More

We had the best time on our Black Pearl Charter snorkeling trip :) We decided to book at the last minute, we had one day left of our honeymoon and thought we might sneak in one last snorkeling trip before heading back home. We called and made the booking for the following day and luckily there was a vacancy. Fortunately... More

Thanks Mike for a great trip both fishing and snorkelling. Fishing is never predictable but Mike found us some and enjoyed the area and experience. May get one of those reels. Gave my wife a hand with her snorkelling skills and lack of confidence, provided great morning tea whilst fishing and lunch during the second day snorkelling. The snorkelling the... More

A superb morning out with Black Pearl. Leo looked after us very well and gave us excellent advice and assistance. This resulted in a large Mahi Mahi and a Barracuda. Mike filleted the former and our hotel chef cooked it for us on the BBQ .... fantastic. Mike and Leo are very nice guys and nothing was too much trouble... More

We went out with the famous Black Pearl on two fishing and snorkelling trips. FANTASTIC!! We caught fish, Mike filleted them on the spot and then we either ate them for lunch or took them back to our villa and had a wonderful sunset BBQ. Mire and Leo took us for our snorkelling after being dropped off by Mike in... More

Had a great time with Mike & Mere once again. Brought the family along this time for a half day fishing charter, then the following day a lagoon day on the White Pearl. Awesome operators who know how to make your trip go well. Flexible and adaptable, friendly and organised. Mike works hard to make the fishing trip interesting with... More

Leo and Meré are amazing. Their boat and service is second to none. This was part of a group experience and we had no input to who was chartered for our trip but these guys were the best. So much fun and such and awesome team. We were on a swimming trip and these two were often our support boat,... More
