Aitutaki and its lagoon captivate visitors from that first glimpse out the aircraft window. Startlingly white swathes of sand contrast with the deep azure of the encircling Pacific Ocean and the remarkable turquoise of its lagoon studded with tiny islets.
Just a 45 minute flight from Rarotonga it’s possible to visit Aitutaki on a day trip however we recommend you stay at least two nights to soak up the beautiful surroundings and really get a feel for this little piece of paradise. Hire a bike and explore the deserted beaches, tiny villages and white washed churches!
Swim with schools of tropical fish in the lagoon, luxuriate in the sand under a palm tree and eat freshly caught barbecued fish. If you are visiting over the weekend we also highly recommend you pop into the markets on a Saturday at Aratunga Wharf where you will see a hype of activity with locals and tourists alike. Purchase that colourful sarong, indulge in the fresh produce or pick up a
souvenir to take back home.
There is no way better way to experience the beauty and charm of Aitutaki than to do a lagoon cruise. Hop onboard the Vaka Tiki-a-Tonga and enjoy breath-taking views and a relaxing atmosphere. Visit sun-soaked islets, swim and snorkel in spots teeming with an array of colourful tropical fish and be treated to a delicious tropical buffet lunch.
Fish and feast – an angler’s delight! Within five minutes of leaving the wharf behind you will be starting your deep sea fishing adventure with Black Pearl Fishing. Your hosts, are on hand to give you friendly, expert advice as you build up an
appetite fishing for yellow fin tuna, wahoo, giant trevally and mahi mahi (when in season). Any fish you catch will be filleted and delivered to your accommodation later that same day in time for dinner.
Let ‘Bubbles Below’ take you on an unforgettable diving experience. Your dive instructor, Onu, knows all the
best diving spots in Aitutaki. You’ll see schools of spotted eagle rays, green turtles, napoleon wrasses, moray eels and you’ll often encounter tuna, trevally and barracuda.
Aitutaki Lagoon is home to some of the world’s largest bonefish. For fly fishermen seeking the challenge of a
lifetime the ‘ghost of the flats’ presents one of the most thrilling fly fishing opportunities available. The huge bonefish (Kio Kio) of Aitutaki Lagoon are a challenge to catch and land. Itu, a second generation bone-fisherman has extensive knowledge
of the flats, and his legendary fish spotting ability helps tip the odds in your favour. Nobody knows the Bonefish of Aitutaki like the boys from the Davey clan.
