Captain Fantastic

Andrew Katu, is “Captain Fantastic” for the Kia Orana Cruise speedboat which goes out each day on the Aitutaki Lagoon..
Captain Fantastic is one of Aitutaki’s most experienced lagoon cruise operators. With more than18 years of operating experience he knows every inch of the lagoon, so you will be in safe hands.While you are cruising, he tells you about the history and culture of Aitutaki, of his forefathers, and about the latest issues facing the environment now, and he truly understands about caring for the lagoon, so you will get quite an sense of his efforts on preserving nature, while you are getting round the choicest parts of the lagoon with its fabulous snorkelling spots. Another treat is getting onto the islands to explore and see the nesting birds, and being serenaded at lunch!

Where we go on the Lagoon

Captain Fantastic will take you off the usual beaten track, on a morning or afternoon cruise with plenty of time to snorkel at different locations, among colorful fish and giant clams in crystal turquoise water. You’ll feel like you are in paradise and you can even feed the fish from your hand. Being on a smaller boat is also very popular with honeymooners, and wedding groups.



See our gallery of pictures taken on the Honeymoon and Maina islands and various snorkelling, and diving spots in the Aitutaki Lagoon.

Walked the whole way around Maina felt like being on a deserted Island. Takes your breath away the scenery too perfect to be true. Lovely island feast served on traditional island plates CF serenaded us while we ate.
