Humpback whales come to Niue's waters each year from about July to September to calve and nurse their young, often very close to shore.
An adult female whale can measure up to 16m long, and weigh up to 40 tonnes !!
Can you imagine what it would feel like seeing these magnificent creatures from a very short distance? Can you imagine how special it would feel to be in the water with them?! Surely it would be an experience that you will never forget.
Magical Niue Sea Adventures offers Whale Watching trips (with our 6.4m boat seen above), where the main objective is getting into the water and snorkel with the whales, when conditions allow.
These trips are educational in nature, with interesting knowledge shared, not just about the whales, but also about the island, its reef and other marine creatures.
All snorkeling gear is provided.
Tour duration: Approx 4hrs on the water.
We are now taking bookings for 2019 Whale Watching season.
Rates: We have taken out the risk for you. Pay only for what you experience !
$170 - for whale encounter - watching or swimming with whales.
Our whale watching trip is up to 4 hrs long, and although we focus on finding and swimming with the whales, the trip also includes swimming with the dolphins, if encountered, site seeing, and snorkeling at some sites only we go to, including chasm and cave snorkeling. All snorkeling gear and educational information is provided.
We appreciate that it can be very disappointing to go out and not swimming or even seeing the whales. For that reason we charge you only for what you do experience and see. So we have 2 different rates, as follows:
NZ$170 pp for watching or swimming with whales.
NZ$140 if no whales were encountered at all. This
rate is for the rest of the trip, site seeing and snorkeling, as well as
dolphin swim, if dolphins were encountered.
We give you whatever the ocean gives us during the tour. You do not have to pay for what you don't see or experience.
