• Diving And Snorkeling - About - Niue Blue Island Experiences

    About Us

We fell in love with the gorgeous Pacific island of Niue, a tropical paradise on one of the world’s largest raised coral atolls. Here, we take people diving in some of the clearest waters in the world, with visibility reaching 80 metres. We take people snorkelling in pristine coves and caves, exploring chasms and reefs bursting with vibrant marine life, or interacting with whales and dolphins in their natural environment – in waters that are warm year-round. We recently purchased Buccaneer Adventures Niue Dive in early 2020, and have renamed it Niue Blue.

In the middle of getting our heads around the planning for Niue Blue, COVID-19 hit our shores and slightly put our plans awry. To put it mildly, probably not the best time to buy a dive business overseas! But we have, and we are pretty excited about it.

We started looking during 2017 and totally fell in love with Niue, the island, the people, its blue water, and its laidback style. Evan and Jana and their family joined forces with Kate and Jeroen, making a pretty strong and passionate team.

The owners in Niue Blue have been in business together running Dive! Tutukaka, operating NZ’s largest dive and snorkel operator out to the Poor Knights Islands for over 20 years, so you can be sure this is not our first rodeo! Combine this with 30 years of an existing Niue dive business, and that is almost fifty years of marine adventure experience – and we are still keen to learn more.

We’re excited to be continuing the existing long-standing relationship with the people of Niue, and further building on the reputation for delivering safe and fun marine adventure experiences from New Zealand into the South Pacific.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
  • Swim with dolphins and snorkel Superb! Lovely people and remarkable snorkelling in such clear water with a pod of over 30 dolphins. Pure exhilaration! You only need to wear togs and jandals- they supply the rest.

  • Awesome afternoon out with the team. Went snorkeling in three locations, all with great features, Belly of the Whale was my favorite. Very knowledgeable about the history and culture!

The 2022 whale season here in Niue is one for the history books - the whales arrived at the end of June (they often arrive mid-late July) and many of the locals say they have never seen this many! The whole island is buzzing πŸ‹πŸ’™πŸ‹ we have had some absolutely incredible encounters so far and it doesn't look like it's slowing down! πŸ€™πŸ”₯β˜€οΈπŸ’›
Check out this little guy we πŸ‘€ on our night dive! So many amazing critters, like this boxfish, come out when the sun goes down and diving at night is a an entirely different experience!
Onboard our bright yellow boat watching whales so close in!! πŸ³πŸ’›πŸ’™
We're lucky to have some seriously cool caves, caverns and swim-throughs here to explore on our dives πŸ”¦ the combo of clear water, encrusting life and amazing topography (often in shallow water) is a treat for divers of all experience levels!
Favia corals like this one  are reef-builders, providing habitat and substrate for other species like fish, crustaceans and other corals - as well as being beautiful! This snap was taking down one of our local sea tracks where we love to snorkel.

WHAT A DIVE!!! @barclayevan and our friend Ioane from Fisheries had an unexpected dive buddy today at our hottest new dive site Limu Twin Caves - a humpback whale!!! πŸ³πŸ³πŸ’™πŸ’™ Having the reef drop-off so close to shore here in Niue means whales can be cruising by while we are diving. Crew Beckie and Jackson saw two whales coming, and managed to get this INSANE video from the boat showing just how big and graceful these animals are! πŸ³πŸ’™πŸ³πŸ’›πŸ€™

It's not just whales at the moment we have had plenty of turtle action too the last couple days 🐒 
Green turtles are listed as endangered so no encounter is ever taken for granted πŸ’š
The whales arrived just in time for school holidays - woo hoo! 🐳 Taking people to experience these amazing animals in their natural habitat and teaching them more about whales and the ocean is an honour πŸ’™

The whales are HERE!! We have had some amazing sightings over the past week, including right outside our dive shop 🐳🐳 our whales tours start this week and we are so excited to be out in the water with such beautiful animals

Look what we spotted...
A spotted eagle ray! 
We don't often spot them around here so it was pretty damn spotilicious!

Not all gems in Niue are found below the surface ~ there are so many hidden sea tracks and rock pools waiting to be discovered 🌴🌈
