I have dived many spots over the world and our dive at Julian Rocks with Sundive Byron Bay was the best - we saw so many Wobbegong Sharks, 3 turtles, Leopard Sharks; up to about 8 all at once at one point, plenty of fish of all sizes, and then a Manta Ray even swum past for a look at... More

It wasn't perfect, but overall I'm glad we went! We got to snorkel with 3 sea turtles which was pretty darn special. The conditions weren't ideal but I appreciated that the staff had warned us ahead of time that it was getting windy out there and we were welcome to postpone or cancel our booking. The captain was great fun,... More

All the people working here were professional, friendly & fun. Safety was clearly a priority. My sister & I took our kids (9 & 12) snorkelling and were fore-warned that it may be a bit choppy on the water, but that if we were willing to give it a go & it was too rough for the kids we could...

The crew at Sundive were very friendly and helpful during our dives at Julian Rocks. Our first dive was with Louise as our guide. The water was beautifully warm with vis at 6-8mtrs. The current was noticeable but Louise guided the dive around rocks and into channels to minimise any issues. Of course the dive shop doesn't control the weather... More

There's some fantastic diving in Byron Bay and you won't find a more professional and nicer outfit than Sundive. Jack the owner is very knowledgable, they have good Dive Masters like the lovely Sandra and Dell, who take you on a great tour of Julian Rocks dive site. The skipper of the boat is also very safe-conscious and a nice... More

Great friendly professional service as usual even though the weather wasn't on our side and we didn't get to dive. Glad to see that safety is No1 priority.

This was my first dive in the ocean and I couldn't have asked for a better staff or experience. The plethora of wildlife around Julian Rocks was almost overwhelming. Leopard Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks, Manta Rays, Moray Eels, Cuttlefish, turtles, the list goes on! I only signed on for two dives, but after my experience I changed my plans and came... More
