Niue is located in the South Pacific Ocean. It is commonly known as the "Rock of Polynesia."
A coral reef surrounds the island, with the only major break in the reef being in the central western coast, close to the capital, Alofi.
Visibility is rated amongst the best in the world - frequently in excess of 50 and sometimes up to 70 metres. As Niue is made of porous limestone, it has no lakes or streams, so all rainwater filters quickly through this rock into the sea & in doing so has carved out an amazing & unique environment to explore - caverns, caves and cathedrals!
Diving is a spectacular with a mind-boggling array of marine life, including turtles, dolphins, snakes, whales in season, hard corals and all manner of fish.
Snake Gully– Niue’s signature dive site – a cavern crammed with painted crayfish, sea snakes by the dozens (and sometimes hundreds), schools of barracuda make regular appearances and all in a depth of less than 20 metres.
Tamakautoga Reef – a beautiful stretch of hard coral reef with a number of dive sites.
Ana Mahaga (Limu Twin Caves) – two large caverns with a tunnel connecting them. Great marine life.
