I really enjoyed the snorkeling and felt it was well worth the money. The captain of the boat was full of local knowledge, offered places to visit during our stay and was lovely to talk with.

Had the best diving weekend.....Gae was a great guide- reassuring for our novice diver and extremely helpful and fun for everyone.

Diving was great - varied, abundant fish... More

I'm a beginner at snorkelling but the people at Sundive really made me at ease. The equipment was all very good. They didn't automatically provide anti-fog spray or optical goggles to suit my husband but generally a great time/experience was had with an outstanding variety of sea life.

Great friendly staff. Wetsuits, masks and all equipment in great condition. Amazing dive, so much marine life. Heaps of leopard sharks and wobbegongs, couple of eagle rays. A couple of turtles. Many large fish and huge schools. One of the best dives i've done. Highly recommend doing it through these crew :)

I came from NZ to Sundive Byron Bay as I had a friend that visited a year prior to me and raved about the diving and the shop. The shop was really well run, from reception to the guides (Gaye and Hannah) and the boat captain (Roger, Kiwi undercover). All the gear was in great condition from what I saw,... More
