The island of Aitutaki was settled by the legendary Polynesian explorer Ru and his entourage from Raiatea in French Polynesia. They arrived in the dark in their large ocean going twin hulled vaka at O’otu, the channel at the south end of Aitutaki Airport. Legend has it that next day they embarked on Aitutaki’s vast turquoise lagoon reveling in its clear calm waters, feasting on seafood, refreshing themselves with the abundant sweet coconuts available on the motu (small islets) that encircle the lagoon. Today, visitors to Aitutaki can experience the beauty and the bounty of the lagoon and surrounding waters on our Vaka Titi ai Tonga. The 21 metre Titi ai Tonga (meaning “wind from the south”) is a contemporary vaka styled on the vessels of ancient Polynesian voyagers, but with some modern comforts. There’s snorkeling, 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.
