Located just 2.5 kilometres from Byron Bay, one of Australia’s most popular travel destinations, Julian Rocks Marine Park is rated as one of the top five scuba diving locations in Australia. The mixing of tropical warm currents with cooler temperate waters makes the diving near Byron Bay unique.
Due to its amazing diversity and abundance of fish life with over 1000 recorded species of tropical, temperate and pelagic fish, Julian Rocks has earned a reputation as being one of the most prolific fish dives in the world. Whales, Dolphins, Manta Rays, Leopard Sharks, the endangered Grey Nurse Shark and three species of Turtle are all common visitors to Julian Rocks. All the action is just 10 minutes from Byron Bay’s main beach!
Byron Bay Dive Centre are Byron Bay’s leading dive and snorkel specialists. Their diving facility was established over twenty years ago and since then their goal has always been to ensure their customers enjoy a safe, rewarding and memorable diving experience.
They cater for all levels of experience and provide all equipment hire (if required), the boat ride (on which we frequently see dolphins) and a dive guide to show you around on a dive of up to 50 minutes. When you return to the dive shop there are hot showers and their dive crew will help you fill out your logbooks and identify some of the creatures you saw.
For beginners wanting to experience the amazing underwater world of Julian Rocks Marine Park, we recommend the Introductory Dive Tour. This is a half day tour which starts at 6.30am, 9.30am or 12.30pm daily and includes all equipment, a lesson in the training pool and then an onsite dive with your trainers.
