Went out to Julian Rocks for two dives and had a blast. Dennis was the boat captain and Stefan (sp?) was our dive master. Saw a bunch of animals (rays, sharks, etc.) and generally had a good time. Will come back for sure!

We had our first ever dive today. Our guide/trainer vanessa was great! The water was a little bit murky but once we got to the bottom we could see heaps of marine life. Highly recommend!!!!

You must do this. Beautiful Julian Rocks is the destination for this snorkelling experience (or scuba if you have your credentials). All equipment and tips are provided. Safe for all ages. We saw Wrasse, Blue Groper, Wobbegongs, Giant wrasse, Snapper, sea turtle and even a baby seal amongst too many more that I can't even name. The staff are great... More

Friendly fun and jovial crew and an easy going yet professional approach. Only 4 stars as some gloves, boot socks could have been offered, and the fins could have been of newer/better quality but not a huge issue. A fun day well Worth the dive seeing all three type of turtles, black stingray, octopus eating s Crayfish, growers and thousands... More

A spur of the moment decision saw me completing a bucklist adventure by going with the wonderful crew from Byron Bay Dive out to Julian Rocks where we spent over an hr snorkling around the rocks. With the visability at least to 10 meters there was plenty of fish, a couple of turtles and big wobbys to see . Thanks... More

They promised whales and we saw whales! Our guide Rob was fantastic. Excellent customer service too! We stopped in to the dive centre the day before our tour and the staff gave us a heads up that our tour would likely be cancelled due to the waves. We were able to reschedule for a time before we had to leave... More
