The team at Sundive are friendly, cheerful and incredibly willing to help. We have dived with Sundive several times, and have always been very happy with their service. We made an interstate trip at the beginning of the year, and the team at Sundive went out of their way to help us arrange parking for our vehicle and trailer, as... More

If you are not sure to dive with Byron Bay Dive Centre or Sundive I'd recommend Sundive for the following reasons: I dove with Sundive back in April 2016. The staff was so professional and friendly. our dive master gave us a very detailed and to the point brief. He was also very patient and professional in the water. I... More

As the sun rises over the most eastern point of Australia, my fellow divers and I ride on the edge of Sundive's Zodiac, racing as it were over the waves toward Julian Rocks one of the countries premium dive sites. To our right a pod of dolphins frolic and race our boat as the excitement builds for soon we are... More

I rolled into town and went straight from the bus stop to Sun Dive and got suited up. The whole set up is really easy and the crew makes you feel very well taken care of. The wildlife is out of this world... there are already 200 reviews about the Nurse sharks -- for good reason! We also had a... More

Sundive is a great dive/snorkel operation out of Byron Day, taking visitors to beautiful Julian Rocks. I booked in for two dives on one day and had such a great time, I booked in for another dive the next day. The operation is very professional and the crew are all very friendly, helpful and expert at what they do. I'm... More

This is a very well run show. Minimum fuss between gearing up and getting in the water. The gear is good condition too, which is important when you're getting into 19 degree water (well for me anyway as I'm used to diving in the tropics). No rips or tears in the wetsuit, booties, BCD or mask. It WAS cold. I'm... More

Easy booking system and experienced divers not treated like idiots! I like this place. After launching on the beach, it's a 5 minute run to Julian Rocks. Phil our dive master has a phenomenal knowledge of fish identification. Great vis and a huge variety of fish including 7 types of cod. Highly recommended!!!
