Amazing and breathtaking!

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!
