Niue is also one of the few countries where you can swim within 200 metres of these unmissable giants of the deep, with licensed operators offering whale watching and in-water interactions.
Niue is a signatory to the Whale Sanctuary for Endangered Oceania Humpbacks and is committed to promoting understanding of the whales and the sanctuary’s cultural and environmental significance. Therefore self-guided experiences are not allowed and whale watching is only permitted with licensed operators, so all interactions are conducted from a distance that respects the whales privacy and visitors safety.
