I've dived with Sundive on and off for over a decade. The instructors and dive guides may come and go, but the quality of service, friendly atmosphere and professionalism are always the same. My visit this time was to attend an underwater photography course. Excellent tuition followed by two dives at the Rocks. Conditions were flat calm, although recent heavy... More

My wife and I have joined the day dive tour with Sundive in Jun 2014, seems that Sundive is a family run dive shop. Most of the people working here are very nice and helpful. As my wife is pretty small and not very easy to climb up to the boat after dive, the owner (I thought) asked her to... More

Having not dived close on 2 years, the team at Sundive were patient, helpful and understanding. I enjoyed the dive at Julian Rock immensely. Will return.

First trip diving with Sundive on 4/21 (as a solo certified diver) and Sundive was incredibly professional and thorough, but also very fun and personal. Sundive teamed me up immediately with a similar solo diver of similar dive history. We dove 10:45 at Julian Rocks and our guide (Louise) was amazing, despite the strong currents around the rocks!! Although I... More

Second trip with Sundive and both trips were excellent. The rocks are an awesome dive and Sundive in my experience are a well organized outfit who plan the dives well according to the conditions. We did two dives and coming back to town for the surface interval is a welcome break. Staff are easy going and professional and as a... More

I am pleased I chose Sundive for my first try. I was well prepared, coached, supported and encouraged. The time in water was so amazing as there were so many different fish, leapoard shark and a number of turtles. What a wonderful mysterious world beneath the waves. Thank you to Sundive for a memorable experience.

Have dived all over the world, but never in my own backyard till recently and gotta say, Julian Rocks rates as one of the best places. Sure the visibility wasn't the best on the day but still the numbers of fish and the variety of species puts in right up there in my estimation. The Sundive crew were all very... More

Best run dive shop I've ever been to. Very well organised and efficiently run, but never felt rushed or chaotic. Friendly staff, excellent and helpful guides, with no attitude. Great diving and crew. Love the hot shower option and the fact that great coffee is next door!

My girlfriend and I tried Sundive on the back of a recommendation we had the day before whilst diving Cook Island near Tweed Heads (we went with Tweed Sea Sports, absolutely 5*), and we're very glad we did! Sundive were very friendly and helpful, fitted us in for a dive at very short notice. We were very professionally briefed beforehand... More
