    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.

  • 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.

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.
