Would go again!

We had an amazing time on the Rum Runner. Just got a little a lot bumpy on the way to the reef and back but the trip itself was great! Highly recommended!

Mixed feelings

Well... Me and my friend got eaten by bed bugs, so we couldn't sleep and we found more of them in our luggage after we left. My bath towel mysteriously disappeared, from our cabin. On the upside the staff was nice and the food surprisingly good. The diving/snorkeling sessions had a good length and it was interesting to visit 4 different areas. My advice, check if the bed bugs are still there, if not, go for it. :D

Thanks for the review Frida, JP the skipper does do a good trip and food. He did mention this issue after your trip on the 30th May. Sorry about that! Since then we have had our pest people in to give us the all clear. We not sure why but it just seem too be just that one cabin you were both in! They sealed it for a week and all good. Thanks again for the review and to recommend others to "go for it" Jason
