Everyone who visits Aitutaki either stays at one of the resorts or flies in for the lago on tour. We were not doing either, we needed a ride to “town” so we could rent a scooter and see the island on our own. An island representative, who was so incredibly friendly arranged a ride for us, $10 to town, not a bad deal considering the only other was would be to walk.

Today we did a lagoon trip on Aitutaki Adventure Cruises. The boat was a catamaran barge with front and back on and off load. Our captain was Puna and he owned the tourist dive boat.
