Starting in 2015 we will be spotlighting a new diver each month!
We want to give our divers a chance to share their lifestyle, what they love about diving and inspire others to get in the water with their scuba stories! Rum Runner Dive Shop "Diver of the Month" will be selected based on their passion and involvement in the diving community. Basic diver or dive professional; any diver qualifies. The “Diver of the Month” will be announced via social media, our website and through our shop emails. Plus, they will be given a gift certificate when they are noticed at our monthly Dive Club Meetings.  
We love our divers and want to motivate all of our scuba family to blow bubbles often! To nominate a diver email diving@rumrunnerdiveshop.com.
