Great experience!

The last two past days Will definetely stay in our hearts forever. In the first place because the GBR is something out of this world (but luckily in this world 😀), we could snorkel for hours and appreciate every detail. And in second place because the staff was always kind to us, helpfull and joyfull. The food very good! 👌👌👌

Awesome dives

Hitting the reef was the goal, but RumRunners made it even that much better! We enjoyed the entire experience that was lead by the feisty skipper James. We had amazing meals that James cooked and very well lead dives. There was also a snorkling component for those that don’t dive as well which was really nice. Overall AWESOME!

Great trip/great eats/great staff

Rum runner and its crew were the best; JP was fun and informative esp. with the fish show. The crew were professional and insistent with procedure being followed yet friendly and fun!!

The WORST - AVOID like the plague

The owner/captain is an A; who shockingly rude and condescending from the moment you board. He clearly doesn't like people, just wants ur $$. I got terribly seasick for the first time in my life on this shabby lil boat (and the seas were crazy calm). I've ridden all types of boats all over the world for 2 decades and have never gotten seasick. The A-hole owner forces you to get drinking water from the grimy bathroom sink rather than the kitchen sink which is nearby. Most of the wetsuits have holes in them and were for skinny ppl only. I would NEVER be a repeat customer. I STRONGLY advise you to book another operator who respects customers and cares about offering a great experience.

Hi, Not sure what happen here. First of all i would like to apologize, if i came across as condescending. I have had a couple off horrible events in my life over the last months, with two very close friends passing away in the space off one week. I do apologize that there were no wet suits in your size. The water from the tap in the bathroom is the same as the kitchen, we drink from it all the time. It was real unfortunate that you were seasick, may I suggest motion sick tablets next boat trip. Once again i do apologize for any inconvenience the trip may have caused you. Jason owner/ captain
