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 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 need to wear togs and jandals- they supply the rest.

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 🐋💙🐋 we have had some absolutely incredible encounters so far and it doesn't look like it's slowing down! 🤙🔥☀️💛
Check out this little guy we 👀 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!! 🐳💛💙
We're lucky to have some seriously cool caves, caverns and swim-throughs here to explore on our dives 🔦 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!!! 🐳🐳💙💙 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! 🐳💙🐳💛🤙

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 💚
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 💙

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 🌴🌈
