Tour Highlights…

Raui Conservation System

90% of Aitutaki’s lagoon has been set aside as a Marine Reserve where a total ban on fishing is enforced. As result the amount of marine life is incredible.

BBQ Lunch

The fresh fish BBQ is one of the highlights of the tour. While you are in the water snorkelling, the crew of Titi Ai Tonga will prepare and cook lunch on board. Once everyone is seated, the crew will take the vessel on a slow cruise along more sandbanks towards One Foot Island.
