The team are organised, friendly, welcoming, efficient and give you the royal treatment in terms of preparing all of your gear for you. It is an easy fall back in to the ocean off the boat into a specially protected nature reserve filled with wonder! We saw plenty of Grey Nurse Sharks on this trip and I am hoping to... More

The last day of my week in Byron I figured I'd just give snorkelling a shot, I'd heard good things about the rocks and wound up at Sundive because they were the only ones with a spare slot. I'd like to think it was a happy chance of circumstance. The staff are friendly and warm, within moments I felt like... More

This was a long awaited activity that thanks to the Sundive crew surpassed my expectations. Everything went smoothly and there was great communication between staff and patrons. The marine life included tons of beautiful fish, sea turtles and a grey nurse shark. On the way out in the boat we were lucky to see dolphins as well. Good times and... More

We decided to go snorkeling with Sundive, and it was definitely worth it. Julian Rocks is an awesome snorkeling spot with lots of small reef fish, turtles, wobbegongs and if you're very lucky some other large guests (sharks, rays etc.).

I hadn't planned on diving when I first arrived in Byron but I learned about Sundive through the hostel I was staying and they raved about the experience. I am so glad they did! I am a certified diver but hadn't been in awhile nor without my partner so I was a bit anxious. The team did an awesome job... More

I was informed that the 'vis' was only a few metres by SMS ( a nice touch) but I still needed to get wet. From the sign in at the shop, to the gear organisation prior to leaving, to the briefing, the trip out to Julian Rocks I was most impressed by ALL of the team........ and then there was... More

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.
