If I were to go back to dive at Julian Rocks again, I would definitely go with Blue Bay divers! My friends from overseas and I organised a last minute trip to Byron as we really wanted to dive at Julian Rocks. I called to see there were any availabilities for the the next few days but we got told... More

The team at Blue Bay Diving was very professional, caring, friendly, knowledgable,great sense of humour, all round great group to dive or snorkel with. They are the only diving in the area that offers 2 dives/snorkelling without having to return to base. It is easy to get to and park, Highly recommend this group if you wish to dive Julian... More

We did a a double dive with Blue Bay divers last Sunday. It was our first trip to Julian Rocks and it wont be our last! Very professional set up, but relaxed and fun at the same time. Expert crew of Mark and Rod got us safely out in the swell and Christina was our expert dive guide for the... More

The crew at Blue Bay Divers really looked after us and made sure everybody was comfortable with the sea conditions before committing to a particular site. Their policy of using larger tanks for the first dive to give customers a longer experience is great for the divers, but it means the crew has to work harder during the surface interval.... More

Myself and friends have been regulars with Blue Bay Divers for over 3 years now. In fact a can't believe I haven't done this review sooner, but I'm fairly new to trip advisor, so that's my excuse. Christina and Rod (owners) present a very relaxed, safety focused, well organised dive charter. Tanks and weights are supplied, and full kit good... More

I have always wanted to dive Julian Rocks and had a great experience. We saw mantas, turtles and fish. We had our own divemaster as we had never dived there. The crew were fantastic and could't do enough for you.

I had 4 snorkel trips and managed to get under the water for some shallow freediving. You do need to wear a wetsuit and be confident in the water. The crew were great - safety conscious and attentive to the divers and snorkellers. The boat is very steady and the ramp in and out of the water is the best... More

Crew were enthusiastic and friendly despite it being boxing day. Equipment new and well maintained. Boat is large and easy to get around. Divemaster is friendly and chill, made diving fun. Also waited for the whole group, so it was good. We had small groups, of about 4 people to a DM. Very well done.

Rod and Christina are exceptionally professional with excellent communication. We dived with them 4 times over a 2 week period. Each time was a double dive. It would have been more but the weather cancelled one of our days. When the dive was cancelled, we were phoned early. We used our own gear but their tanks and weights. But, others... More

A small intimate charter company running out of Brunswick Heads. Lots of local knowledge and skill and they always find whales for you to watch. Nothing is as good as getting up close and personal to these magnificent creatures. Worth every penny for this once in a lifetime experience.
