The SV Rum Runner dive liveaboard boat is a dive boat available on the Great Barrier Reef for chartering.

The Rum Runner is a fantastic budget dive liveaboard way to dive the Great Barrier Reef. This small 20 metres (66 feet) liveaboard is set up for a maximum of 16 guests across 4 cabins.

Admittedly the cabins are quite small, nor are they particularly private. But it’s not about the sleeping quarters, but about the diving and the beautiful sights of the Stunning world heritage site the Great Barrier Reef.

If you’re happy with hostel style living accommodation where you’re happy to flop after a day’s diving, then it’s worth a look.

Felt as though we had a real diving experience without unnecessary comforts and distractions. “Improved diving skills, beautiful reefs, interesting conversations with people from around the world.” Recommended for Professional dives, good company, escape from the internet. Eric D rated it 4.5 stars out of 5 and 8.8 Fabulous – United States of America

Although this liveaboard dive boat was built back in 1984, it still has all the relevant boat navigation and safety on board. This includes Radar, GPS, Radio VHF/DSC/SSB, life vests, first aid kits, an E.P.I.R.B. Distress System, emergency rafts and oxygen.

Good dives and good times – “Really nice dives with some through “coral tunnel”, a night dive and a really good time just chilling on the boat. Great experience!Recommended for Nice dives, good atmosphere, friendly crew. Julie L rated it 5 stars out of 5 and 9.6 Exceptional – Switzerland.
