Pacific Resort Aitutaki’s Aquatic Eco Trail is a ‘must do’ activity when staying at Pacific Resort Aitutaki!

As passionate caretakers of our environment Pacific Resort Aitutaki partnered with Pacific Islands Conservation Initiative (PICI) to raise awareness of the fragile eco system and challenges facing our reefs.  Through the introduction of the Cook Island’s first Aquatic Eco Trail on the shores of the resort, we aim to increase awareness and understanding of these unique challenges, while highlighting the beauty of this area for all of our guests to enjoy.

The Aquatic Eco Trail is a self-guided snorkelling and educational tour of Pacific Resort’s lagoon environment which has become a well-received educational activity for our guests.  There are five different habitats to explore and each are identified separately and marked with a white buoy.  With many varieties of marine species found in each of these habitats there will surely be something new to discover from the green sea turtle, angelfish, butterfly fish, blue starfish to the giant clam.


See our map of the Aquatic Eco Trail with all five areas and descriptions of coral and marine life.
