Went with Captain Fantastic on a wonderful day tour through the Aitutaki Lagoon!
First of all he was super quick in responding to my email inquiry that I only sent to him 2 days prior to arrival. Confirmation was quick and he agreed to pick us up at the Cruise Ship landing spot.
Arrived and there stood Andrew, waiting for us.
We went out with his covered speedboat and Captain Fantastic made sure that we would see 7 islands in about 6 hours - and this before they were crowded with other tourists.
We were a total of 8 passengers (maximum capacity) and each had enough space to store our bags/ belongings. Off we went to the first couple of islands that were all different (some consisted of volcanic rocks and others were simple little sandbanks with a couple of tiny palm trees).
On "One Foot Island" we got to walk around while Andrew went ahead to get everybody's passport stamped.
One of the highlights was the delicious lunch buffet that he had prepared for us in just under 30 minutes. It consisted of freshly caught parrot fish, an abundance of fresh fruit, breadfruit salad (very similar to potato salad) and even some sort of a doughnut pastry. Served and presented in giant clam shells and on palm leaf plates. The food was exceptional and afterwards we went snorkeling at the reef. Perfect for people who like shallow and deep water as it is sitting right next to a sandbank. Andrew "walked" his boat over the sandbank, followed by his pet fish KONG KONG, who joined us the entire time. The snorkeling spot was fantastic, as we got to see the giant clams in just 3-6 feet depth.
Would go back any time. Captain Fantastic is the right name for Andrew! Highly recommended!
