Diving off Niue is in another league because of the water clarity and underwater landscape, let alone the sheer diversity of marine life.
Niues’ water’s are so clear they’re rated as amongst the very best visibility in the world - frequently in excess of 50, and even up to 70 metres.
It is because Niue is made of porous limestone that it has no lakes or streams, so all rainwater filters quickly through this rock into the sea & in doing so has carved out an exquisite & unique environment to explore - caverns, caves and cathedrals!
Diving is a spectacular encounter with a mind-boggling array of marine life, including turtles, dolphins, snakes, whales in season, hard corals and all manner of fish.
Niue seems to burst out of the deep Pacific Ocean and the island’s shelf sharply drops off within a hundred metres from dry land in places, so you don’t have to travel far to be in very, very deep water.
Niue is an island nation in the South Pacific Ocean. It is commonly known as the "Rock of Polynesia", and natives of the island call it "the Rock" for short. Niue is 2,400 kilometres northeast of New Zealand in a triangle between Tonga to the southwest, the Samoas to the northwest, and the Cook Islands to the southeast.
