Hi I'll probably be staying in Vaitape, do your boat trips visit great snorkelling areas like Motu Topua or Tahaa or Tautau? Do you pick up from Vaitape? Also, how much is a single day trip or half day trip looking at September/October 2017? Do I take my own snorkelling gear or do you provide? I live in Australia. Do you take Australian or NZ currency? Thank you. Diana Morrison
