Snorkelling depends on the weather/current conditions. The crew are friendly and all the usual corny jokes are told much to our tourist amusement. The crew have a lot of time for customers and do a great job. The buffet was okay on the island but...More

Went with Bishop's from a friend's recommendation. This is a slow moving boat which gives you the ability to soak up how absolutely stunning the Aitutaki Lagoon really is. Did a couple of snorkeling areas, arriving and leaving just before the Vaka Cruise showed up...More

The staff and crew did a fantastic job with our group of 13 people. The service received – from enquiry to tour completion - was warm and welcoming, entertaining yet professional, and very well organised. A must do for anyone visiting Aitutaki.More

Thankyou Bishops cruises! We had an amazing morning on a 1/2 day private charter. We chose a private charter over the lagoon cruise as we were travelling with young kids. The cost is reasonable, our captain was flexible, knowledgeable, and showed us some great spots.More
