Humpback Whales - an amazing reason to visit Niue

Have you ever dreamed of swimming in the ocean with some gentle giants?

Niue is known as one of the best places for humpback whale watching and is one of the only places in the world where you are actually allowed to swim with these amazing creatures.

Humpback whales in the southern hemisphere spend the summer feeding down in the waters around Antarctica and then spend the winter migrating north past New Zealand to the tropical South Pacific for breeding - most commonly around Niue & Tonga.

If you are dining at Scenic Matavai Resort Niue you are very likely to see these local delights from the deck area at the right time of year.

There are three whale watching operators based in Niue so be sure to book your spot on a trip early to avoid disappointment.

Find out more about whale watching on the Niue Island website.
