Diving in Niue

We had a great couple of dives with Niue Divers. I don't have time to write much text, but here are the best of the pictures that Dave took on our 4 dives.

The Niue Divers Boat

Note: I am not as fat as this picture shows... the wide angle lens makes me look terrible, but it's a great shot otherwise.

Obviously... Sea Snakes are one of the main attractions in Niue.

The other main attraction are the whales, but it's not whale season yet. There have been some scattered whale sightings while we've been here, but not consistent enough so that we can go out and swim with them. June is early early whale season... July is better, but the whale season peaks in August and September.

The Humpback whales come to Niue and Tonga to have their babies in the mild winter weather. During peak whale season, Niue Divers does 'swim with the whales' adventures... wish we were going to be here then...
