INTO THE EYE OF THE HUMPBACK WHALE
With Sue Halliwell, a New Zealand writer and conservationist & Sober Sister
Into the Eye of a Humpback Whale is a unique journey to Niue designed for sober women
looking for a profound physical, emotional and spiritual experience.
WHY NIUE? Sue has led trips to both Tonga and Niue to see and swim with the humpback whales that
migrate to both Pacific island groups every year from their Antarctic feeding grounds. However, it is on the
small island of Niue that she has experienced the most spectacular whale watching, much of it happening
just offshore. Here, the sea bed drops dramatically only 50 metres from the island, meaning mother
whales come in close to shelter their young, and where the girls go the boys will follow.
WHO IS THE TRIP FOR: It is exclusively for sober women, particularly those in a recovery program such as Alcoholics Anonymous. My aim is to give these women a rich travel experience in a safe, non-alcohol drinking environment – something they may struggle to achieve through other travelling mediums.
DON'T FORGET: Just the usual shorts, tee shirts and dresses for day time, swimsuit, your own snorkel gear if you don’t want to hire, warmer gear for the evening, camera, a dress of a decent length with covered shoulders (or a shawl) for church, extra snacks for nibbles if desired (very expensive and limited on Niue), extra cash for extra activities. Currency is NZD
