A dive at Julian Rocks with Sundive is a MUST if you are visiting Byron! Have dived in mexico and borneo but does not even compare with the amazing sea life at the rocks...From the Leopard Sharks to sea turtles, every dive will be exciting and worth your time... Sundive's team are wonderful :)

These guys operate to Julian Rocks, which offers outstanding sea life. The dive is challenging though, as there is always a current and sometimes it can be a washing machine in and around the rock. As a big guy, I had issues with my wetsuit and weights, and about half way around I aborted the dive as I was getting... More

Our family dive with Sundive on a regular basis and have had excellent service. They always try to suit the dive to our ability and each trip out is an adventure. Julian Rocks always gives a good show of marine life. One of our favourite places to go.

Julian rocks is amazing and the stuff you see is incredible. Also visibility is constantly great. I did the resort dive, They start you in a pool and the training is good. Out in the water it was great, the only problem is they give you 200bar in the tanks, some little female European backpacker with small lungs gets a... More

The dive exceeded my expectations. We saw 30+ leopard sharks, 3 manta rays and 2 green turtles. The equipment was in good condition however my boyfriends first regulator was broken (easily replaced thanks to thorough gear checks). Alistair the dive master was lovely and let me take control of the dive as it was just the two of us. The... More

I expected my dive in Byron Bay to be mediocre at best, but Julian Rocks turned out to be a fantastic dive. We got lucky with dozens of leopard sharks and spotted rays, and it was just a lovely all around dive. I wish I'd had more time! Good equipment, easy transfers to/from the dive site, and a good price... More

I recently was able to dive @ Sundive and can absolutely say Sundive is a top notch dive shop! I have been lucky enough to dive in places such as Malaysia, Thailand, Costa Rica , Mexico and now Australia. Byron Bay Sundive ranks at the top of any dive shop I have dove with. The staff at Sundive were friendly,... More

Had a great experience with the Sundive team. Only a short boat trip to the site and we saw turtles, leopard shark, manta ray and a huge variety of fish. Visibility was 20m which helped, but the team advised where to see the best selection and the whole experience was very professional. Thanks for a great holiday memory!
