I had a great dive with Sundive. The group was small and the divemasters very professional. I was nervous after a bad experience in another country and the dive with Sundive really rebuilt my confidence! We also saw loads of amazing marine life! Thank you!

I dived with Sundive at Julian Rocks a week ago. The marine life was amazing with heaps of leopard sharks, rays, wobbegongs, nudies, eels, jellyfish etc. It was quite choppy that day and the visibility was quite poor with the strong currents. The staff was professional and helpful, and also fun to dive with. I got a bit seasick on... More

There had been a few storms in the area, so we called the day before to check if we should reschedule or if the visibility would be ok. We were told they expect good conditions but of course visibility changes daily and they cannot make any guarantees... fair enough but unfortunately we had bad visibility. Our second dive was maybe... More

The one thing you notice about Sundive is the buzz. A really friendly relaxed dive school where you're met with a smile. It's a big thing for me when people bother to learn your name especially when you're there for just one dive. The kit that I hired was in good condition, full briefings and an excellent dive guide meant... More

From my first counter enquiry at the shop, to being geared up & taken out on multiple dives to Julian Rocks, I got 100% friendly and professional service. I was given an honest appraisal of the conditions (a bit mucky when I was there), and what to expect. The gear was in good condition, and I was surprised when they... More

I went along with friends who were diving. Although I only snorkeled it was amazing. There is still many things to see below the surface at Julian Rocks. We swam Among Leopard sharks and stingrays. Can't wait to return and go scuba diving. Very friendly staff also...
