Native New Zealanders Mike and Mere Tekotia moved to the tiny island of Aitutaki in 2005 to realize their dream of living among the coconut trees and operating a charter company. They chose Aitutaki for some of the same reasons you might consider a visit – it is an off-the-beaten path gem of an island with laid-back locals, picture perfect scenery, and a wealth of fishing opportunities. Mike and Mere’s charter company is called Black Pearl Charters, and they offer a wide range of fishing and other adventures from Aitutaki.
Mike and Mere operate two boats, the “Black Pearl”, a 24’ NZ-made Aluminum Pontoon Tsunami, and the “White Pearl”, a 24’ NZ-made Aluminum Lazercraft. The Black Pearl is set up primarily for fishing and the White Pearl for snorkeling and spearfishing. Captain Mike loves taking people spearfishing, both for novices (mostly inside the lagoon) as well as experienced divers outside the reef and even at the FADs for wahoo and mahi.
