Just finished two dives with Sundive and l rate them as excellent! Very well run, hire gear was all in good condition and the diving at Julien Rocks is fantastic. Grey Nurse sharks, turtles, Wobbegongs, a huge bull ray and large schools of fish. If visiting Byron it's a must!

Excellent customer service by friendly staff. Able to wash our own gear in their tanks and were offered fresh water. Our guide Gaye was helpful and competent both under water and explaining the dive. Both dives we did had so much to take in. Huge variety of fish. Saw a massive Grey Nurse shark which was pretty special at this... More

What an amazing day spent with the Sundive crew out at Julian Rocks. Our instructor Liz took us through the in's and out's of scuba safety and basic scuba diving skills before we were taken out into the ocean with Gaye for just under an hour of scuba diving! The marine life was fantastic, as was Gaye at pointing them... More

Thank you Sundive! I've mostly only been diving in tropical waters so Julian Rocks was a really special experience where you really do see the mix of tropical and cold water marine life come together. Giac and the crew at Sundive are fantastic. It's a well run, professional operation that makes sure everyone is well-briefed and safe while having a... More

I dove with Sundive in september 2016. The Staff was friendly, gears was good. We saw grey nurse shark and small turtles and when we were on the boat, we saw whales and dolphins. It's pretty much more expensive than I use to paidwhen I dive in the Carabeans, but it's the price everywhere over there, in Australia Unfortunately for... More

We had an introductory dive at Julian Rocks with the lovely Maria. My husband had dived once before, but i never had. Maria was great, made us feel really at ease and made sure we had all the information we needed. The dive itself was incredible - we saw turtles, sting rays, sharks (grey nurse and wobbegong), and loads of... More

Me and my boyfriend did two dives with Sundive at Julian Rocks. First of all our instructor/dive leader, Josh, was more than great. He was calm and helpful both on land and during our dives. The equipment was great and even if the water was around 21 degrees non of us felt cold due to really fresh, new and warm... More
