A a professional center for underwater recreation, Rum Runner Dive Shop offers quality scuba training, as well as a tremendous amount of opportunities for community involvement!

In addition to the many training opportunities and involvement initiatives, they also host an extensive variety of quality equipment and professional gear service.
