I've been diving with Sundive since the early 2000's. I'm always very well looked after by their helpful, friendly and professional team. The Julian Rocks is also my favourite dive site within driving distance of Brisbane/Gold Coast. Love these guys and will be back again and again. Looking forward to my next visit.

I had never dived Byron Bay before and was recommended Sundive by lots of people from my dive group. Prices are good. The shop staff were very friendly and booking in was easy. They allowed me to leave my kit there to hang up and dry, before and after the dive day. There was tea and coffee to keep warm.... More

We were lucky to have a dive of a lifetime. Our guide was calm and great to follow around. He showed us many nurse sharks and we are ever so grateful. It's a fully organized dive shop and they're on top of all aspects.

a great professional dive shop to dive with. staff is friendly and easy going and the dive location is just amazing. Would recommend it to all divers that have the option of diving Byron Bay. Big plus is tea and a hot shower for after dives.

Surprised by the abundance of tropical fish, and the size of the wobbegongs! up close and personal with a lot of grey nurse sharks for the first time - exhilarating! Julian rocks was a real treat! Sundive were a slick outfit with a real personal touch. Impressed and would go again.

My partner and I went to byron bay for our first ocean dive and a friend recommended Sundive. It was the best choice we have ever made, the staff and knowledgeable and friendly. They made our first real diving experience unforgettable! We will be booking with Sundive again.

After a few Google searches I settled on booking with Sundive and I and 100% glad I chose them. The staff are easy going, knowledgeable and experienced and have all items covered, including hot showers and coffee and tea after dives. The issue with diving with any different shop is they don't know your experience level and you don't know... More

The Staff at Sundive are amazing, having been on three dives with them now I've almost been extremely happy with the exceptional staff and the enthusiasm they bring to the group. The centre is layed back in typical Byron bay style, the staff are easy going and the equipment is in good order and plentiful. The centre does two to... More
