This was the second time I have dived Julian Rocks with Sundive. We had a fantastic dive, so much to see, 24-25C water, vis not bad and a very professional outfit!! We had our own gear but the hire stuff looked fine and there weren't any complaints from the other divers. Chris our dive master was incredibly relaxed and kept... More

We did the 8am dive with Sundive to Julian Rocks on a calm sunny morning. It was superb. Sundive run a very good, friendly, efficient operation with small groups, excellent rental equipment and customer focused. My 12 year old son and I had a great dive, lots to see in the Marine Park at Julian Rocks including a huge, old... More

After a couple of false starts with another company, we were told to ring and book in Friday with Sundive as conditions looked ok. I rang them Friday morning and we got the ok to go! We arrived 3/4 hour early and the staff greeted us with heaps of smiles and enthusiasm. These guys obviously love their job. We were... More

Julian rocks was an amazing dive, I am dreaming of returning. The vis was about 10-12metres and the swell was pretty choppy but that couldn't dampen our spirits. The dive was awesome manta rays, leopards, turtles, wobbys. The team at Sundive were fantastic!! Every single member took their time to make sure everyone knew what they were doing, what their...

Awesome experience all around. Dive masters gave all the groups a run down of how the dive was going to run beforehand. Gaye was our dive master and paired us all off with our buddies while she showed us around Julian Rocks. Within 5-10mins of our trip we witnessed two good sized manta rays pass directly over us which was... More

This was a dive I had really wanted to do as I had read how good it was. The dive did not disappoint and the team at Sundive were excellent from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this company for all levels.

I took my sister out for a dive for her birthday and booked with sun dive. I was a bit hesitant as I'm fairly inexperienced and wasn't sure what to expect. The staff were lovely and didn't baby you, but made sure everyone was safe. The dive was great- beautiful corals, plenty of fish, sea stars and leopard sharks. Couldn't... More

No proper introduction, massive dive operation. Equipment was average. They just want to get you in the water quickly, and out quickly. Divemaster was friendly enough, but other staff were pretty bad. Skipper was extremely grumpy, despite everyone listening to him, and nothing out of the ordinary happening. The rest were just grumpy and busy. Poor.

Hi Johnathan, Sorry to hear that you did not have a great experience when diving with us. Apologies that you felt rushed. Not an excuse but Byron Bay and Sundive in general on the 24th Dec is at its peak of the high season and perhaps a contributing factor. As you can see from our other reviews we really pride... More
