Just returned from our honeymoon to the Cook Islands, the highlight being our week in Aitutaki with the highlight of the week spending a day on the lagoon with Captain Fantastic- Andrew.
This was our second trip to Aitutaki, the first being five years ago where we first met Andrew on his Kia Orana cruise. As this held one of our most enduring memories of our time away then, it was always going to be on the agenda to take another of his cruises this time around. We weren't disappointed. As 5 years ago, he made us feel very comfortable and welcome on his boat that takes a maximum of just 9 passengers. Because of such low numbers, you are better able to interact/ ask questions about the lagoon and the island's culture and history. When landing on one of the smaller islands you also got a better sense of being the only ones there.
Lunch is lovingly cooked and prepared on Maina Island where Andrew's ancestors established rights to occupy the motu. You are also taken to what must be some of the best snorkelling on the lagoon.
Throughout the whole cruise you never felt rushed with a rigid timetable. Something that only a small cruise could offer. Thank you Captain Fantastic for a very memorable cruise (again).
