fishing & spearfishing
Fishing in Niue is legendary with fishing media describing Niue as a “fisherman’s secret paradise.”
Very, very deep water is accessed almost immediately from launching so you’ll spend most of your time fishing, not travelling. You can even stay on land and target fish off the rocks. For those that are really keen you can even try fishing the traditional way from a vaka (canoe) or head out for a flying fish netting session.
Black, blue and striped Marlin; Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna; red Bass, Mahimahi, Sailfish, Wahoo and Giant Trevally, amongst many others, are commonly encountered.

Niue has several professional operators running established, safe and reliable charters. Whatever your preference or experience you can virtually be guaranteed a big fish, a big fight and an even bigger story to share at the end of the day!
