So friendly and accommodating of our party who were of varying skill and experience levels. The highlight of our trip to Australia, eagle rays and turtles and loads of beautiful fish! I recommend Sundive wholeheartedly, excellent customer service and an all round fantastic service.

I had just passed my Open Water qualification and was looking for somewhere to make my first proper dive. We visited the centre in advance, and from the start I felt more confident. The welcome and reassurance offered on that first visit was genuine and made such a difference . We booked in for a dive the next day, and... More

A little nervous before i dived, due to my little experience. However the staff and other dive masters were always making sure i was fully informed and up to date with information/safety precautions. The dive was very pleasant from beginning to end and would highly recommend someone who is looking to dive (with or without experience) to check out Sundive.... More

We went out as two certified divers for a 2-dive trip. The whole experience was just easy; from phoning up the day before to kitting up and going diving. Customer service was great - it's not valet diving, you need to help with loading the boat, launching it and being responsible for your own kit, but that's fine and the... More

Dived with Sundive for the past couple of weekends. The dives were great, but what impressed me was the professionalism and helpful nature of the staff. Special mentions for Beau, Gai and Gabby who took care of us and our skipper Roger who got us out and back safely and found us a hundred plus dolphins! The Sundive team catered... More

The Sundive crew were so helpful, knowledgable and passionate about diving. They made the whole process from booking the dive until hitting the water so easy. Julian Rocks is a fantastic dive site and the dive guides were fantastic and could cater to all abilities within the group. Will definitely be coming back to dive with them again soon!

I learnt to dive with Sundive in 2010 and keep coming back. On this trip I did four dives, they were amazing. Saw turtles, rays, leopard sharks, one of which followed us for most of the dive and then the icing on the cake was a massive nurse shark. Fantastic.
