Cook Islands


Visiting Aitutaki

Lagoon, Cook

Islands for your vacation is one of the best vacation

destination decisions you may ever make. The Aitutaki lagoon is as

idyllic a place as you will ever find; many poets and writers have spun

thousands of lines describing its wonders and beauty. Matriki Beach

Huts was built on the foundation that all people should be able to

enjoy this splendor without the high costs associated with such remote

travel. Aitutaki lagoon offers snorkeling, 


diving, fishing,


watching, picnicking

on beautiful

beaches, sailing, kayaking,

and much more. While snorkeling, you can view a myriad of colorful

fish and see first-hand the

giant clams of Aitutaki and the South Pacific; these clams

are now protected in four separate reserves in the Aitutaki lagoon. Bone

fishing is a thrill all its own – although we don’t eat the

fish they are truly a rush to stalk and catch. Fishing

for pelagic species outside of the Aitutaki lagoon offers up Yellow

Fin Tuna (Ahi), Dorado

(dolphin fish), Wahoo,

and array of jacks and snapper. Bring some of your catch back for the

BBQ. At Matriki we practice fishing conservation – never kill what you

can’t eat in a few days, and never kill billfish.

The local Aitutaki scuba

diving operator

will safely show you some of the Cook Islands best diving; they are

safe, reliable, and very knowledgeable. Matriki has Hobie cats for

hire, sail the Aitutaki lagoon and discover what all the fuss is about

for yourself. Your hosts are always there to answer questions, take you

on tours, sailing adventures, fishing trips, and more.
