I never snorkel before, but it wasn't hard at all because of awesome instructors. I was swiming next turtle(which was on my bucket list!), and got to see sooo many kinds of sealife. Thanks to sundive for great experience, and if someone's hestating about doing this, i'd say just stop thinking and GO!! :D

Dived again with Sundive today (my favourite dive company). Visibility was amazing, our guide found us Grey Nurse sharks, Turtles, Rays and a giant Qld Grouper. Staff as always were super efficient, professional and friendly and I want to go back already! If you want to learn how to dive or dive a great spot then don't go past Sundive.

Sundive are a friendly, professional well organised crew!! I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 dives with them recently. Dave (divemaster) took me on my first dive and he was exceptional. From the time he introduced himself to me when I arrived, I was absolutely amazed with him. His dive briefing was the most thorough, detailed and interesting ever. He was friendly... More

I've been diving with Sundive at Julian Rocks (Byron Bay) for twenty years and it just keeps getting better. (becoming a Marine Reserve made a difference). I agree with Marzy369, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They usually buddy you with someone of equal experience, and if no-one else similar is available the dive guide arranges the dive so you... More

I've been there on 4 separate occasions- it's that great. The diving is really cheap- $65 for tank and weights. The entire operation is fast and efficient, and as a bonus they... More

A great diving experience from the time I rang up and booked. Very friendly and laid back without loosing any safety consciousness. It was nice to have a dive guide and will definitely be back

My trips to Byron wouldn't be complete without a dive at Julian Rocks, and Sundive team has always delivered. The friendly, knowledgeable and competent staff make every dive special.

Thanks for the awesome dive today. We saw lots and lot and lots of fish, two turtles and also two Wobbegongs. I'm not that experienced in diving but felt safe all the time. It's fun to dive around Julian Rocks because you actually feel the waves and pretty much everything happens just all around you. Not only the dive was... More

We have known the Sundive crowd for 12 years and they have had a very consistent experience every time we dived with them. Exceptionally friendly, accommodating people, very efficient, always running on time. Cater for novice and experienced divers. Probably the best operators we have dived with in Australia. Cannot recommend them highly enough.
