Julian Rocks, the first dive destination on our Long Adventure. This dive is rated by many as one of the best dives in Australia, and it’s easy to see why. We have dived Julian Rocks many times and have never been disappointed. This time we were fortunate enough to see our first two Seahorses at Julian Rocks.
We went out with Sundive, Byron Bay. The staff always look after us and the guides are very experienced. We had 5-8 metres visibility with strong current, not a dive for beginners. However, we were rewarded with an abundance of fish life, schools of black fin mackerel, sweet lips, jew fish, huge stingrays, blue spotted rays and a dozen or more leopard sharks. Unfortunately this was not a photographic dive, the current was pushing us too fast to stop for photos. When we did stop, we had to hang to take the occasional shot.
