BLACK PEARL CHARTERS
Black Pearl Charters is owned by Mike and Mere a friendly husband and wife team and has been operating since the year 2005. Working alongside them is Leo – a local fisherman who has over 20 years experience in showcasing to visitors Aitutaki’s spectacular lagoon and marine life.
Black Pearl Charters operate a total of two fishing boats both of which were built in New Zealand. They specialise in all things fishing and snorkelling and can cater for all types of skill levels. They have available a number of tours to suit your needs such as half or full day shared deep-sea fishing or spearfishing charters, whale watching tours and a fantastic private guided lagoon tour which offers plenty of snorkelling opportunities.
The Black Pearl (first image) is an Aluminium Pontoon Tsunami, which is your mode of transport for any and all fishing trips. The pontoons make this one of the most stable fishing platforms around and being a hard top, it provides much protection from the sun and all other elements. The White Pearl (last image) is an Aluminium Lazercraft. The Lazercrafts are well recognised and respected all over the world and provide a soft ride for clients with easy access in and out of the water, which is why it is used for lagoon tours and snorkelling trips. The extended fiberglass hard top provides plenty of shade for clients on board.
Visit 3 different locations on the Private Lagoon Tours or do as much or as little fishing that you wish on the shared fishing charters. The main method of fishing is trolling or towing hard and your target species mainly include Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo and Mahimahi.
For the ultimate fishing or lagoon experience in Aitutaki, look no further than Black Pearl Charters.
