One of the most pleasurable ways to experience the beautiful lagoon of Aitutaki is aboard the "Lagoon Lova" catamaran. See giant clams and join the Captain as he hand-feeds schools of tropical fish. Swim in the clear blue lagoon waters, snorkel amongst the amazing array of beautiful tropical fish, or pretend that you are a castaway and explore deserted beaches. After all the activity it’s time for a BBQ lunch of fresh fish and local salads complemented by entertainment from the crew.

Cruise on the stunning Aitutaki Lagoon to Maina Island and Honeymoon Island where you can enjoy swimming in the warm blue waters and snorkelling around the famous Karoro Shipwreck site. If you’re lucky you might spot a turtle or two. When it’s time for lunch your friendly hosts with their contagious laughs will prepare delicious hearty island fare. Sitting at umbrella tables in the lagoon and served with champagne – what could be better? DEPARTS : Mon-Sat DURATION : 3 hours DISCOVERY SAFARI TOUR Too much beachcombing?
