We were very blessed with our underwater interaction with the humpback whale. We were able to observe it resting on the seabed for quite some time, while it too observed us before making its way gracefully to the surface right in front of us :-) An experience that will remain with me forever & our guide [marine biologist] was passionate,...

We were lucky enough to swim with a humpback mother and calf. It was incredible. The guides are super knowledgeable and experienced and make everyone feel like their friend. It was an awesome experience I won't forget.

My partner and I just returned from a week in Niue. Our main reason to go was to swim with humpbacks and we weren't disappointed. The crew at Buccaneer were very professional and made sure we all fully understood the regulations around encounters with these beautiful creatures, giving us some history around the whales and a really informative overview of...

Having had 2 previous attempts to swim with the whales a couple of years ago I was thrilled to be able to do so on two separate occasions. The staff are very thorough in their attempts to find the whales before the trip even leaves but of course nothing can be guaranteed. Once in contact with whales which were suitably... More

We had 7 dives and a whale trip all of them were memorable. Bubble cave was my favourite dive and we saw kraits every dive. At our first dive site we were welcomed by 3 humpbacks whilst we were kitting up they swam off as we entered the water but what an awesome start to the holiday. The staff were... More

Buccaneer Dive in Niue, offer people the chance to get up very close to Humpback Whales. With good results. We swam with 3 seperate whales. Two were down deep, but we had one come very close to us. It was awesome, and a bit scarey. She was beautiful. The trip started with a comprehensive lesson about the whales. Then we... More

As an older, solo female diver I loved the warm welcome that I received and the thoroughness and efficiency of the paperwork and sorting all my gear with minimum fuss. I had booked six dives plus a whale watching trip and although I was the only diver booked for two of these dives, they still went ahead with the dive,... More

I had only one dive but was very happy with the whole experience, from a very friendly greeting when I came to book my dive, to preparation and the actual dive. Divemaster really took time to explain everything in detail since we had inexperienced divers in the group and was overall super friendly. I strongly recommend this dive shop.
