I had a great time with all those from Sundive, loved their operation. I have dived with many companies in Australia but these guys are up the top with the best. I was looked after really well, thanks Gabbie, and saw some great stuff. Comfortable number of people on the boat - none of this "cattle truck" stuff like others.... More

Had a great afternoon snorkelling. With a minimum of fuss we booked and left from the same office. The staff were efficient and very welcoming. The trip itself was a great thrill with many interesting fish and a turtle. A terrific afternoon.

If you are in Byron Bay and feel like a trip out scuba diving or snorkelling, to have a look at loads of fish, turtles, rays, sharks and other life in the sea, then head for these guys, they are friendly, professional, not too pricey and lots of fun. All equipment supplied if you need it. Just do it!

I went on a dive trip to Julian Rocks with Josh. Since this is only my first trip after getting certified, Josh helped me and guided me along when we went to the deep. We saw many sharks, large groupers and snappers! Very lovely and highly recommended!

The Sun Dive team were the most friendly and professional team I've dived with. They were also nice and relaxed and laid back too which were a great combination. The dive itself was awesome and we saw Dolphins, Whales, heard whales singing, turtles, Grey Nurse Sharks, and plenty more. Such a diverse dive, and the viability was about 8m which... More
