I was there at the end of filming. They had a section of Aitutaki and the lagoon
sealed off. The area that they were in was on both sides of the only road on the south part of the island. The road is sand/dirt but easy travelling. The area is very beautiful, thick with growth in some locations, coconut trees, papaya, and good fishing
. The reef makes the water
very shallow and at the very south end it extends out about a mile with coral
heads everywhere. The trash left behind was incredible but efforts were being made to clean it up. Mostly plastic water
the show brought into Aitutaki was VERY important to the islanders. Local boats were rented, produce purchased, every accomodation was taken and locals hired to help. The people of Aitutaki were very pleased and grateful.
