I've dived with Sundive for quite a while now. I find them very attentive and professional. Never had an issue with any of the staff. The diving conditions vary, which is the same for any site, but their knowledge of the area promises you'll get the best dive for the conditions on any particular. Highly recommended.

I did one dive in the morning, which went from the Nursery to the Cod Hole (not to be confused with the legendary Cod Hole in the north east, accessible only by a liveaboard). In June, the water was a cool 22 C, and we were comfortable enough in 5 mm wetsuits with vest and hood. Among other things, we... More

Went for a dive with a couple of friends, one of whom dives with these guys all the time. We have nothing but good stuff to say about them, and we're both instructors ourselves so should know what we're talking about! All in all, fantastic day out (helped by the excellent conditions & the leopard sharks, mantas, eagle ray and... More

Excellent experience with the Sundive team, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, informative and awesome diving at Julian Rocks. We were lucky enough to see Leopard Sharks, Wobbegongs, Turtles, Mantas, and Nudibranchs. Would definitely recommend. Only wished we'd had time to do more.

was up in Bayron for a week, and heard of them from friends. I haven't been scuba in a couple of years, and Sue made sure I got in the pool and felt comfortable, thanks for that, and safety first. We went out on a gum boat, and the skipper was a true captain, making sure all are aware of... More

The staff at Sundive are professional, patient, and have a sense of humour and empathy.The last time I dove 2 years ago I had a terrible experience with a different dive centre which left me petrified of diving. Thanks to the staff at Sundive, despite turbulent water conditions and the abject terror I felt beforehand, I fell in love with... More

We stopped in at the dive shop at about 4pm and were able to book in for an Introductory Dive for my friend first thing the next morning. Scheduled for an 8am dive we arrived at 7:15am so that she could do some skills in the pool (right next door) while I organised our gear for the dive. Diving at... More

Friendly and professional staff, very good guiding. We did two dives at Julian Rocks, the first one at Cod Hole, which has a "crowded" underwater cave to dive through, nothing hard though. The second one was at Needles where we saw several manta rays and had a face to face encounter with two sea turtles.

Having just passed my Open Water, I was quite nervous on my first recreational dives. Did not need to because the crew at Sundive was so professional, friendly and helpful. I will not hesitate to go back and to recommend them to anyone keen on a great experience!
