Everyone there was really considerate and professional. The guy (I think he is French) who helped us with our lesson prior was very nice. Even out at Julian Rocks, he showed us where the turtles were, helped us when we got carried away and took our photos which I'm sure is a pain. Thanks heaps! Julian Rocks was amazing. Worth it!!

Swimming with leopard sharks/ wobbegongs/ sting rays/ multiple types of sea turtle and countless fish. Our guide was excellent, he had a great eye for the sea life and you could tell he really loved his job which was great. The guy on the boat was also funny and friendly. All round a very professional and enjoyable experience. Thursday 11th 10.30 session.

Did the tour with a friend and we both had wonderful time. Everything was well organised, trip on the boat was fun and safe and once we arrived there was so much to see: turtles, sharks, colourful little fishes and rays. Worth doing it and most important I did not feel we disturbed them in any way. The highlight was one of the turtles coming to the surface for a breath and then just swimming around us for a while. Highly recommend.

Seeing multiple turtles, stingrays, sharks and beautiful fishes. The instructor Elly was absolutely amazing she explained different types of coral and animals and explained a little bit of information about them. It was truly an amazing experience. Worth going there.

I thought this trip was fantastic! The guides were very helpful and supportive yet chilled. The snorkel itself was brilliant. There was so much marine life at Julian rocks; I saw leopard sharks, turtles, a ray and lots of brightly coloured fish. Fantastic experience!

I loved my first experience in snorkeling ! Around one hour in the water, the preparation with equipment is a little bit long. After you take a van to go on the beach and hop on the boat. 15 minutes after you’re in the water. I saw turtles, little nice sharks and a lot of different beautiful fishes. Just a bit disappointed, I hired a camera to take pictures under the water for $50 but I had a problem with and I couldn’t take photos for about 20 minutes. I was annoying but the team was very nice and very professional. They tried to fix it so I could take photos again and they refund me the total amount and gave me a card with my all pictures. Very nice, I really appreciated ! Thanks again at the all team.

Hi there, the experience to snorkel at julians Rock (byron bay diving center) was just great! We discovered turtles, sharks and stingrays within the first 15 Minutes. The guide and the whole team have been helpful and very friendly. We were snorkeling with only a group of 10 people and it has been one of the best snorkeling experiences of my life! Thank you guys!

First time snorkeling; loved it!

In Australia for the first time and wanted to try snorkeling. The dive centre in Byron Bay was awesome! A brief lesson beforehand provided the basics and from there it was a great time. The water was so clear and I can't even remember all the fish and sea life I saw. Turtles, starfish, large blue fish of some sort, black, yellow, etc. So incredible. Also a pod of dolphins on the way to the rocks. Really nicely done.

何の事前報告もなく いざ、現地に言ったらツアー会社の都合上、今日はやらないと言われました! 英語が下手だった事もあり 諦めて帰りました! オススメはしません! 他に申し込んだVELTRAは価格が高いですがサポート面がしっかりしてるのでVELTRAをオススメします!
