We had the best time on our Black Pearl Charter snorkeling trip :) We decided to book at the last minute, we had one day left of our honeymoon and thought we might sneak in one last snorkeling trip before heading back home. We called and made the booking for the following day and luckily there was a vacancy. Fortunately... More

Thanks Mike for a great trip both fishing and snorkelling. Fishing is never predictable but Mike found us some and enjoyed the area and experience. May get one of those reels. Gave my wife a hand with her snorkelling skills and lack of confidence, provided great morning tea whilst fishing and lunch during the second day snorkelling. The snorkelling the... More

A superb morning out with Black Pearl. Leo looked after us very well and gave us excellent advice and assistance. This resulted in a large Mahi Mahi and a Barracuda. Mike filleted the former and our hotel chef cooked it for us on the BBQ .... fantastic. Mike and Leo are very nice guys and nothing was too much trouble... More

We went out with the famous Black Pearl on two fishing and snorkelling trips. FANTASTIC!! We caught fish, Mike filleted them on the spot and then we either ate them for lunch or took them back to our villa and had a wonderful sunset BBQ. Mire and Leo took us for our snorkelling after being dropped off by Mike in... More

Had a great time with Mike & Mere once again. Brought the family along this time for a half day fishing charter, then the following day a lagoon day on the White Pearl. Awesome operators who know how to make your trip go well. Flexible and adaptable, friendly and organised. Mike works hard to make the fishing trip interesting with... More

Leo and Meré are amazing. Their boat and service is second to none. This was part of a group experience and we had no input to who was chartered for our trip but these guys were the best. So much fun and such and awesome team. We were on a swimming trip and these two were often our support boat,... More

My Partner & I towards the end of our stay on Aitutaki (we stayed 7 nights at the Pacific Resort) decided to take a small charter on our second last day just to do the things we wanted as we took previous charters for the lagoon cruise & deep sea fishing. There are a lot of charters & we wanted... More

Before we set off I told Mike that I would catch a Mahi Mahi and see some whales and both of these objectives were met! Mike is really knowledgeable and a great guy to spend time with out on the ocean. Mike said that there weren't many fish around this year but that didn't stop us from trying everything to... More

‎Spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon on a private snorkelling tour. We saw three sites including one with giant clams and another where the captain Leo fed the fish so they came right up close to us. As an inexperienced and unconfident snorkeller this tour was perfect for me as Mere lead me round by hand so I could concentrate on... More

We spent 2 separate days with Mike and Mere in mid-August on our first trip to Aitutaki, and we will definitely be back. From the moment Mike picked us up from our accommodation, he was not only friendly and knowledgeable but was interested in what we wanted, and was adamant to give us the best experience possible. We did some... More
