• Diving And Snorkeling - About - Niue Blue Island Experiences

    Policies

Cancellation Policy

Seasickness, inability to equalise, weather conditions, and personal health conditions are not premises for refund.

Niue Blue will offer alternate dates/product if conditions do not allow for safe travel.

There are times that the weather conditions force us to cancel a trip. Swell and wind conditions and directions may make the trip and the diving dangerous on some days.

Safety for passengers and crew are always foremost on our minds, however, we also know that divers are keen to get a dive. It is our experience on this coast that our weather is actually quite different on different parts of the Island. With this in mind, we very seldom cancel a trip until the morning of departure. Basically, we go diving unless conditions are not safe.

For those that are up early in the morning we are happy for you to ring us the night before (till 9 pm) or early in the morning (6.30 am onwards) if conditions look very doubtful for diving.

We will be able to give you an update and outlook on local conditions. If we have your cell phone number we will endeavour to call you if we are forced to cancel the trips, but best to keep an eye on our Facebook page and let us know your accommodation whilst on-island, so we can call in and let you know. We also can offer alternative dives if one or the other trips are cancelled due to weather conditions.

Medical Information

All marine-related activities, including diving, are potentially dangerous and may require elements of skill by those undertaking the activity. You should not undertake a water-based activity for which you are untrained or unprepared. These water-based activities, including diving, also require a level of physical fitness and that you are in good health.

If you do have a medical history of heart or lung disorders, asthma, or epilepsy, or are an insulin-dependent diabetic, you should declare it to our staff. We are not medically trained, but we are trained to identify and minimise potential risk. You may need a medical from a doctor that requires you to be declared “fit to dive” before we can take you diving.

We reserve the right to withdraw any person who, in our opinion, is likely to endanger themselves or others and we reserve the right to cancel any trip, diving, or other activity if we become concerned for any reason for your safety or that of any other person. If any activity is cancelled in those circumstances we are not obliged to make any refund.

We will be able to give you an update and outlook on local conditions.

We also can offer alternative dives if one or the other trips are cancelled due to weather conditions.

  • 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 needs to wear togs and jandals- they supply the rest. You will be in an inflatable and need to be able to climb in and out of the boat while it's in the water.

One of the lasting senses that stays with you after you have experienced Niue, is the intensity of the blue, and the many many shades.

There is a reason why we decided on the name Niue Blue....
nothing else quite like it...

It's not a fluke .. but it is a fluke...
@hunter.malcon honing his photography skills with our awesome migratory humpback whales. 
Niue has some awesome interactions, and is one flight and no traffic lights away.

The orange-fin anemonefish can not only survive in poisonous coral, but also has made its way to a national postage stamp of Niue - more than once!
Cute and colourful, and fully named as Amphiprion chrysopterus.

Humpback mother and calf.
💙🐋💙
A calf stays with its mother for about a year, drink 100's of litres of milk a day, and doubles in size. They are incredibly affectionate, staying close, and often touching with flippers and research says they whisper to each other in low decibels that the males can't hear. 
💙😍🐋💙
Cute! We love them!!!

Sometimes it is really hard to comprehend just how good the visibility is here in Niue. It is no exaggeration to say 40-50 metres is an average day. Clear, blue, warm and mind blowing.

Snorkel, SUP,  whale and Dolphin swim,  dive in, float on or freedive under the water - Niue is a safe playground.

It's whale season - from the months of July to October in Niue, humpback whales migrate from the cold south to the tropical Pacific to have their babies, to mate, and to feed.
15-20 metres in length and weighing up to 36 metric tons,  the males can sing songs that ca last up to half an hour.💙💙
We swim with them. 🐋💙🐋😍

The water is warm at it's coolest 26 degrees, and clear at is lowest 30 metre visibility - meaning any time snorkelling is a mind blowing experience. It's a dream.

Crabs that eat coconuts, and native rats that only eat vegetables - just like a rabbit. Peka is their native bat - a flying fox, and lupe is a forest dwelling pigeon....this land is a treasure.
The honey is the purest in the world, and the only other native mammals are whales and dolphins in the surrounding sea.

Niue has a marine reserve - it's pretty big.... Moana Mahu Marine protected area  is a 127,000 square kilometre zone and constitutes 40 percent of Niue's exclusive economic zone.

You may see this guy in there...

Rhinomuraena quaesita Blue ribbon eel or leafnose moray.

National Geographic paid us a visit... 
The unique island terrain of Niue—a raised coral atoll located in the South Pacific between Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga—offers bountiful opportunities to observe both marine and terrestrial biodiversity. A wide variety of geological features dots the island’s craggy coastline, including steep limestone cliffs, caves, and sharp, exposed coral formations.

Not many people around...
With a land area of 260sq. kms there is space for you here. When out exploring you often feel like you are the first one to discover the many secluded coves, caves and pools.....maybe you are...
