Sundive, Byron Bay’s only PADI 5 star Dive Centre

About Us

Established in 1988, Sundive is Byron Bay’s only PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, a rating that represents our commitment to quality, safety and service. Our boats are some of the fastest in the Bay, perfect for the 10 minute ride out to our sites, and our team consists of highly qualified and experienced staff ensuring a truly enjoyable and memorable experience.


Did you know Julian Rocks Marine Reserve, where our dive sites are located, has been likened to a ‘mini Galapagos’ (Lonely Planet 2014) and one of the best dive locations in
Australia (The Australian 2011)? The Australian Geographic also rated Julian Rocks as one of the Top Ten snorkelling spots in the country!

We run SCUBA and Snorkelling Tours Daily!

Julian Rocks is world famous for its marine life. Warm and cold water currents meet here resulting in a spectacular mix of tropical and cold water fish creating one of the most abundant fish dives in the world. On most of our dives, we see big sharks and rays, large schools of pelagics, turtles as well as nudibranchs and a lot of smaller marine life. Dive once, dive twice, or dive three times in one day – it’s up to you – we’re not restricted by lengthy travel times, although local laws do restrict the number of launches per day, so book early. We are only a quick boat ride from shore so we bring you back to the shop between dives. This gives our divers more flexibility in their busy schedules, so whether you want to sneak away from the office for a cheeky lunch-time dive, or ditch all your plans and soak up as much salt water as possible, we’ve got you covered. We have ventured out to Julian Rocks thousands of times and are trained to look after all levels of divers from fresh out of your Open Water Course to a Master Instructor, we’ll be sure to pair you with like-minded divers. We send 6 divers or less with each guide to make sure you see more marine life and less bubbles.



Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you.
