Beat the crowds and take Tai Marino's private cruise around Aitutaki's world-famous lagoon! Enjoy a 4-5 hour trip exploring several of the uninhabited islands (or motus) in the lagoon including the beautiful One Foot Island. Snorkel through the One-Foot Island channel and at different spots where you'll see giant clams, tropical fish and hopefully some of our resident turtles and spotted eagle rays. You'll even get to feed and swim with the Giant Trevally and Napoleon Wrasse. Learn about the different wildlife that call Aitutaki home and about the miraculous coconut tree. Finally, get a unique souvenir by getting your passports stamped as proof of your arrival on One-Foot and Honeymoon Island. A light lunch, drinks, snorkel gear and transfers are included. Add this extra on the check-out page when you book your stay at Tai Marino


The area is well-known for its deep swimming channel, one of the few spots on the island where it is deep enough to swim even during low tide. Located on the Western side of the island, the beach and lagoon are a great place to snorkel and kayak. Each bungalow has a dedicated double-seated kayak and access to masks and snorkels.


Besides the amazing sea views, the highest peak, Maunga Pu, can also be seen from the bungalows. The hiking trail to Maunga Pu and Piraki lookout start 50 meters from Tai Marino's entrance and are highly recommended for their views of the Aitutaki lagoon and sunset.

The closest eatery, Aunty Odee'z, is a 2 min walk along the beach, the nearest petrol station 2 min drive and the nearest grocery store, Tina & Co 24/7 only 4 min drive.
