Our guide and driver was so friendly and very knowledgeable and happy to share stories about the island and immerse us in the culture and the beautiful surrounds. Everything we wanted was provided and he took us to all the best spots on the lagoon.... More

We did a Bishop's Day cruise and had a great time. The ride out was fun, the boat was nice, the water is just amazing, such a pristine blue colour (no filter needed!!). We had a cool time snorkeling around with some massive fish and enjoying the water, lunch was at One Foot Island where they put on a really... More

Amazing views, and possibility to stamp passports on the island. Cool experience. -Private Charter: This should be the choice for honeymooners! You get for... More

Despite the weather limiting snorkelling to Onefoot Island, it was still a very pleasant way to spend a day with a simple but tasty BBQ lunch prepared by the crew and the walk through the water to the Heaven Sand Bar.

We went out for a regular lagoon cruise again as we did 4 years ago also with Bishop. Also we rented a private boat for us 2 times this year. We must say it was all perfect. The big cruise is still a must because you will see the main attractions of the lagoon and have a very nice barbecue... More

this was the most disappointing snorkeling outing in 8 visits to the Islands! Stop off at Teal landing then One Foot for snorkeling !!!!!!!! This is not a proper place to snorkel we have been before and felt cheated. No excuses we felt like asking for money back. Had brilliant day out next day with another company. Pull your socks...

We looked at several cruises on Aitutaki Lagoon, they all seemed to have pretty much the same Itinerary, and all were around $125.00pp, but the Bishops Cruise had a discount coupon in the Tiki Tours brochure, so our group of 6 went to Bishops and booked for $95.00pp including pick-up / return transport. Bishops have a big boat and two... More

Excellent cruise around Aitutaki Lagoon. The whole day was just amazing! We snorkeled with Giant Trevally and saw a Giant Clam. We were dropped on a sandbar called Heaven and walked from there through the warm water to One Foot Island. The lunch was amazing, a huge range and all delicious! It was hard to convince me to leave One... More

During our five night stay on beautiful Aitutaki, we joined twice this wonderful lagoon excursion to One Foot Island. Highlights was the beautiful snorkel at the reef with nice corals and a lot of fishes. I even saw some sea horses! Especially nice was also the walk from the sand bar called "heaven" through knee deep water over to one... More
