WHAT TO EXPECT
This dive and snorkel tour caters for all levels of experience. Join this guided dive trip and let the crew show you one of Australia’s most spectacular dive sites. Whether you are an experienced diver, recently certified, or haven’t dived for some time, this tour will ensure you enjoy a safe and rewarding experience at Julian Rocks, one dive site you don’t want to miss!
Julian Rocks Marine Reserve is one of Australia’s top ten dive sites. The diversity of marine life ranges from leopard sharks and manta rays in the summer months to grey nurse sharks during the winter. The reserve is also home to three different species of sea turtle, an assortment of rays, hard and soft corals, friendly wobbegong sharks as well as over 500 different species of fish. From May to September, humpback whales are commonly spotted on the boat trip between the rocks and the mainland. Popular dive spots in this area include The Nursery, The Needles, Hugo's Trench, The Cod Hole, and The Cray Cave. All of this is only a five-minute boat ride from Byron Bay!
The tour will provide all equipment hire (if required), the boat ride (on which the tour frequently sees dolphins), and a dive guide to show you around on a dive of up to 50 minutes. On your return to the dive shop, you can have a hot shower before the dive crew helps you identify the creatures you saw and fill out your logbooks.
If you have not dived in 12-18 months you will be required to complete a quick refresher before your dive, this can be added to your certified dive booking. If it has been between 18 months – 5 years since your last dive you will need to book a refresher course and dive instead.
