    Snorkelling Tours

Snorkelling in Niue should be on everyone’s bucket list – it’s an easy way to experience some of the clearest waters in the South Pacific packed with corals and marine wildlife: the vibrantly coloured fish and corals will have you feeling like you’ve jumped into an aquarium!

Our snorkel trips launch from either Avatele or Alofi (depending on conditions), and start with learning about Niue and its hidden gems. We regularly come across the resident spinner dolphins along the way allowing for a possible in-water interaction. 

We then head to some of Niue’s best snorkel spots, abundant with a wide variety of reef fish and beautiful hard corals. Our experienced in-water guide will support you, take photos, and point out the amazing marine life below the surface.

When conditions are sometimes not suitable for getting out on the ocean, Niue Blue also offers land-based guided snorkel tours of the many caves, chasms, and rock pools accessed by the sea tracks.

This is an opportunity for those of all ages or the whole family to enjoy Niue’s unbelievable crystal-clear water.

There's something extra special about witnessing a humpback mother and calf 💙🐋

There are more than 22 species of anenomefish and here in Niue we have Clark's anenomefish! This species has a different pattern to the ones in Finding Nemo (which are called Clown anenomefish) with larger vertical white stripes 🧡🤍
You can't beat glassy days on the water

There's nothing quite like a night dive 🌅
We could watch this all day! 😍💙🐢

Niue is a raised coral atoll surrounded by incredibly deep, blue waters - this means the whales can come really close to the reef, making for amazing whales watching from the land and the sea! 💚🐋💛

Our of our instructors @travelling_roxy got a wave from this beautiful green turtle on a dive the other day! 👋😘 Green turtles can travel thousands of kilometres to lay their eggs on the same beaches they were born on, and the turtles here in Niue are just stopping by for a pitstop on their journey 🐢

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!
