We found the best snorkelling by far on Aitutaki was between the Pacific Resort to the north to just south of Tamanu Beach Resort in Amuri.

I agree with tropicgirl. The best snorkeling on that strip is just south of Tamanu Beach Resort. There is also excellent snorkeling off the Marine Research Center beach which is walking distance from Amuri Sands and Seaside Lodges. For a different snorkeling experience be sure to do at least one lagoon cruise which will take you to deeper parts of the lagoon and they also include a nice lunch.

Be sure to check out the Top Questions at the right of the screen. You will find just about everything you need to know about Aitutaki.

Happy planning

Puapii-teacher, I wanted to thank you for your advice towards the end of last year in a post about the best snorkelling spots in Aitutaki. It was thanks to your advice that we were able to find such amazing snorkelling right off the beach.

The best snorkeling you'll find in Aitutaki is if you take a lagoon cruise.

We were blown away. It is amazing to see such large heads of coral in the deeper water.
