"Rum Runner kicked off the new year with our annual Florida Springs trip, only this year was an extra special one! With over 50 people in attendance, we had a house chock full of our staff, students, divers, snorkelers, and their loved ones. While the air was a bit chillier than last year, the water was (as always) a beautiful 72-74 degrees Fahrenheit! Our dive and snorkel destinations included Troy Springs, Blue Grotto, Paradise Spring, Ginnie Springs, Rainbow River, and Crystal River. We said hello to Virgil the Turtle at Blue Grotto and got up close and personal with the manatees at Crystal River. After a long day of diving or snorkeling we headed back to the house for one of Carolyn's marvelous meals, good conversation, and even better company!

After everything was said and done, Rum Runner came home with 2 new master divers, 7 newly certified advanced open water divers, and 5 basic open water divers that just completed the first of many underwater adventures to come! On top of all the new additions to our Rum Runner scuba family, we also got to witness some of our already-certified divers overcome personal fears and grow more comfortable with their abilities in and around the water. Congratulations to all of you! We cannot truly express how proud we are of our divers and the community you all help foster, as well as for each and every person's role in helping the trip run as smooth as possible. We can't wait to see you all again next year!"

What a Great Trip! Check out the video!

Dive the Dry Tortugas and the Vandenburg

70 miles west of Key West, Florida, lie some of the most spectacular reefs in the Florida Keys. Most dive sites range from 50 feet to 80 feet to the sand and are home to over 250 species of fish, thousands of invertebrates, sharks, rays and turtles. The USNS Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg is our last stop on the way home, a mere 40 minutes from the dock.
