Safety first and everyone super friendly

This was a great team to dive with, and the launch off the beach and the trip out to the rocks added thrills to what is a fabulous dive spot.

I had purchased some new gear and he took the time to go through every aspect of it. His instructions were very clear and I felt extremely comfortable once I had completed the pool... More

My husband and I had a great time with the Sundive crew. Sue was a professional and knowledgeable dive master, and her enthusiasm was apparent throughout the dive.

I visited byron for a week and wanted to go diving. Was not a certified diver and had the best time with sun dive. I felt totally supported the whole time being a new diver and saw so many amazing things. Could not compliment the staff I dealt with any higher, they were friendly and accommodating and made sure I... More

Wow, what a fantastic dive. Great crew made us feel welcome, excellent dive briefing and knowledgable dive masters. We saw a huge range of sea life - manta ray, leopard sharks, turtles and tropical life. Easy diving, I have recommended to my friends.
