The best thing about Aitutaki is her lagoon, and a visit is not complete without joining us for a fun filled day cruising this spectacular natural wonder. We offer a range of tours and lagoon taxi services, snorkeling gear, beach towels and food and beverage options on the famous One Foot Island.

Really enjoyed the day. Very informative. Great that it was a small friendly group. Saw lots of fish including giant trevelli. Nice barbeque lunch on one foot island. Very good value for money.
