The Vaka Cruise, Aitutaki

4.9
#1 of 11 in Tours in Aitutaki
The ‘must do’ day lagoon cruise aboard the 21 meter Polynesian style Vaka Titi ai Tonga. Every morning at 10am Mondays to Saturdays, the sound of the conch shell signals the departure of the Vaka for six hours of lagoon magic.

There’s snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing to do before tucking into to an Island BBQ lunch of fresh caught ocean fish served on board and accompanied by a full bar service.

Visit several motu (small islets) and beach comb at One Foot Island before returning past the old TEAL flying boat base. Impromptu entertainment by the crew will have you tying pareu, weaving coconut leaf plates or humming island tunes.
A visit to The Vaka Cruise represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Aitutaki holiday builder to plot your vacation.
