    Whale Tours

Humpback whales pass through Niue as they breed and raise their calves annually between July and September. Right on the edge of this cetacean highway, Niue is one of the few places in the world where you are allowed to be in the water to swim and observe these gentle giants.

Every interaction is different, but if the whales’ behaviour is suitable snorkellers have the opportunity to be just 20 metres away from these amazing creatures while they rest and play. Interactions from the boat can also be impressive, witnessing impressive full breaches, flukes, playful spy hops and fin slaps. We are also the only operator in Niue with a hydrophone speaker system that allows all guests onboard to listen to the hauntingly beautiful whale songs. It is also common to be able to listen to beautiful whale songs while snorkelling in the water.

The trips start with a presentation about the whales, learning about their behaviours and migratory patterns. We then head out on the ocean for a coastal tour, keeping an eye out for whales and maybe dolphins along the way. Niue Blue holds one of few whale watching licences on Niue offering a once in a lifetime experience while still adhering to all of the strict rules and regulations protecting these amazing animals.

  • Being new to any ‘Pacific Experience’, for me Niue was a a hidden treasure with the Niue Blue company as the incredible ‘icing on the cake’!! The level of professionalism up-held by the Niue Blue team was impressive. From the outset their HQ was a welcoming space, the equipment distributed to us was new, clean and great to wear & use, the transport & boats modern, clean, comfortable and fabulously manhandled, and health & safety was a number 1 priority demonstrated by the incredibly friendly, engaged and passionate staff. The Niue Blue Experience is a very obvious Must Do when visiting gorgeous Niue. THANK YOU Team!!
