    What to Expect
    Please arrive at the Byron Bay Dive Centre at your selected departure time (either 6:30am, 9:30am or 12:30pm) and ensure you bring a swimsuit and a towel.

    Before reaching Julian Rocks, one of Australia’s most spectacular dive sites you will complete a medical questionnaire, ensuring you are fit to dive, watch a video about your first scuba diving experience and complete one pool session with one of the friendly instructors. The pool session will teach you all the skills you need to be ready and comfortable to go to the ocean. Your instructor will instruct you where to leave your bags, valuable items and personal belongings and set up all your equipment for you. 

    We will provide transport to The Pass, where the boats are launched to take you on a very short (5-10 minute) boat ride out to our scuba diving destination. Keep a eye out for dolphins and whales (June to November) on the boat ride!

    Once you reach Julian Rocks, the skipper will brief your instructor on the area you will be diving! Your instructor will assist you into your equipment and perform a buddy check on you before you enter the water. You can then enjoy up to 50 minutes in the water scuba diving with three different species of sea turtle, an assortment of rays including mantas, hard and soft corals, friendly wobbegong sharks and over four hundred different species of fish. 

    For all introductory dive tours you will be supervised by a qualified scuba diving instructor who will ensure you get the most from your trip to Julian Rocks Marine Reserve.

    When you return to the dive shop there are hot showers and your instructor will present you with a certificate of completion and give you information on how to take the next step in diving and complete your open water course!
