Things to do at the Aitutaki Sports & Fly Fishing Lodge Besides Fishing!
Just because we are a fishing lodge does not mean we only do fishing! We offer other activities like snorkelling and diving days, kayaking and guided days on the lagoon to enjoy the sights and sounds of a tropical paradise. The location is a unique blend of being able to target fish in waters that have had very little fishing pressure and also stay in very comfortable accommodations. In fact, it is the perfect place not just for fisherman but for the whole family to come as the island offers so much for the non-fishing visitors that they will also have the trip of a lifetime. Basically you tell us what you want to do and we can build a package to suit.
Aitutaki Sports & Fly Fishing Lodge provides an all-inclusive package (excluding air fares and alcoholic drinks) and gives the angler and their family total flexibility over what they would like the trip to include. Accommodations are at the beautiful air-conditioned rooms at the Popoara Ocean Breeze Villas right on the edge of the lagoon with quality fishing only a short walk away, and meals are taken at the fully functional restaurant at the Boat Shed Bar and Grill that has been owned and operated by Allen and Maria Mills for many years. Breakfast and lunch are provided for both non-fishing days and all guided days.
All airport transfers and drop offs to the guide boats are provided as part of every package, as is an Island Cultural night that gives a unique insight into the amazing island that is Aitutaki, with island dancers, drumming and a vast selection of favourite island foods. The lodge staff are always accessible for the duration of the stay and are on hand to assist with any questions that may come up. The true benefit of the packages is that any combination of fishing experiences can be catered for and the clients have any number of options to chose from when planning and booking trips.
At the Aitutaki Sports & Fly Fishing Lodge we very much encourage anglers to bring partners and family with them to enjoy the fishing and the location. The island is safe and has many activities for them to do while the fisherman are out doing their thing. The non-fishing partners can enjoy a few drinks in one of the cocktail bars or receive a massage on the beach, maybe a spot of kite surfing or a kayaking tour of the lagoon. The choices are endless and really it is up to the individual how they spend their time in paradise.
Aitutaki Sports & Fly Fishing Lodge also has the use of a 16-foot skiff that can be arranged to take non-fishing partners out for a day of sight seeing, snorkeling or just cruising about and is ideal for family days to get the kids out and having a fish. The boat is for hire as an extra and comes with a boat boy so navigation in the lagoon is not an issue. This is a very popular way to see the lagoon in a more laid-back and relaxed fashion and a great extra to the standard lagoon tours that can be booked with tourist providers.
