Niue is one single island situated in the South Pacific - a three hour flight from Auckland. It is the largest coral land mass in the world.

The lack of reef encircling Niue, results in a drop off to very deep water within 50 metres off the rocks. With great natural beauty inland, a unique rugged coastline and a small reef it provides superb fishing, diving and snorkelling. There are no sandy beaches that you may expect from a Pacific island however the water is spectacularly clear and the diving is amazing with visibility up to 50+m being the norm.

Mahimahi, yellowfin tuna and wahoo are commonly encountered by anglers visiting the island and sailfish and marlin turn up with the runs of skipjack tuna.

Visits to various seamounts around the area has produced some large dogtooth tuna.
