lies in the zone of the South-East Trades. Temperature
averages 80F (27C) in December to March and 75F (24C)
from April through November. Weather is generally pleasant
all year round. Niue is located about 1500 miles north-east
of New Zealand, in the center of a triangle of Polynesian
Islands made up of Tonga, Samoa and Rarotonga (Cook
Niue sits atop an undersea mountain and boasts crystal
clear water that drops to hundreds of feet just off
the shoreline There are no rivers or streams to affect
visibility, and rainwater filters through the coral
structure of the Island, entering the ocean crystal
clear and devoid of any silt run-off.
Dives are into the open Pacific Ocean as Niue has no
fringing reef or lagoon. These two factors mean that
we seldom experience dives with underwater visibility
less than 100 ft.. Water temperature is around 84F (29C)
in January and 77F (25C) in August.
Within just a few hundred yards from shore you can dive
over canyons, through caves or visit drop-offs.
