We did the day trip to One Foot Lagoon and there were only 10 passengers on our cruise. A shuttle bus collected us from our hotel and returned us as well. This was one of the highlights of our stay on Aitutaki, as this company does a fabulous job! We snorkeled and saw amazing fish; the crew cooked us a delicious lunch and afterwards, we got a fair amount of free time to walk around the island, snorkel or swim.
Would recommend doing this cruise!

An awesome day out. Crew pleasant & helpful. Stopped off for 10mins at Akaiami Island, then cruised onto a stop for a 45min snorkel. Dropped off at Heaven sandbar, then walked in waist deep water (WOW!) to One Foot Island for a yummy lunch. Were able to get passport stamped and postcards sent. Spent after swimming off One Foot Island. I highly recommend this tour when visiting Aitutaki.

Kimmy did an excellent job with this trip. We went to see an old seaplane dock and then to snorkel, On the way he spotted many sea turtles for us to photograph. At the snorkeling area we saw hundreds of fish from angel fish to zebra looking fish to fish that were probably more than 2 feet long We then had a excellent lunch that he and others prepared including grill Wahoo. We then resumed snorkeling and saw 2 giant clams that were probably in the range of a metre across the opening.

This was the best experience for the money that we experienced on the Island. We are beginners at snorkeling, so I can not rate that in comparison to others, but we had a great day adn great company.

This would be fun for the entire family.

We booked a private tour with Bishops to go to One Foot Island and Snorkel with the Giant Clams. The Bishop family is amazing and made our day we will not forget. Yes, weather was the best but the experience that the 16 of us had was nothing other than spectacular day in Paradise. The short boat ride to one foot island was exhilarating and upon arrival at the beautiful island, the snorkeling with the big fish and the giant clams then the tradition cookout were fabulous. We loved strolling on the very private island and walking on the sunken sand bar to the above water sand bar island. We finished our great day with bishops dropping us into the water of the plethora of giant clams and drifting to the boats to pick us up. We saw the kite surfers and enjoyed the warm sun and water with a quick boat ride back to the pier. Thanks for a great day Mr. Bishop and family, we will see you next year!
