If you plan your arrival to Niue with that of the annual Humpback Whale migration you can experience something that very few people in the world can say they have done….swim with the whales. From July to October each year Humpback whales arrive in Niue’s waters to calve and nurse their young.
Niue is one of only three places in the world where you are able to swim with the whales. For those not so keen on the swim these gentle giants can be viewed from the land where their gymnastics provide a spectacular show often only 50 metres from shore.
Niue is a signatory to the South Pacific Whale Sanctuary and fully supports the conservation of whales so all interactions are conducted from a distance that respects their privacy and your safety.
It’s common for diners at the Matavai Resort to watch the whales performing from their table. At night, you can frequently hear the whales slapping their giant fins against the water and you may even be kept awake by their calls….unlike anywhere else in the world, they can come that close. .
Organised viewing or swimming tours can be arranged - self guided experiences are not endorsed. This is definitely an experience you will never forget. For further information about whale interactions contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
