There are two fishing trip options to choose from - Fishing Around Atiu or Fishing to Takutea - 21kms northwest of Atiu. Each trip offers their own unique experiences, with breath-taking views of the islands from the ocean and the opportunity to enjoy some deep sea fishing out on the Pacific Ocean.

Atiu Tumunu Tour is a two-century old tradition where the local men gather at their village clubs to enjoy several rounds of a fruit based alcoholic local brew and discuss their day. At the Tumunu everyone is seated in a circle surrounding the barman. The barman then serves the brew clockwise out of a small coconut shell - smaller than the volume of a wine glass.
The Tumunu Tour is a great way to meet the locals and sample the local beverage and local music. Learn about the history of this tradition.
