Operational Update
Live-aboard trips starting October 2020

Great news as we are now in QLD stage 4 of lifting restrictions, we are operating our all our tours within the new COVID limitations.

We have been working with the dive team at WorkSafe QLD to ensure we are ready to operate trips to the Great Barrier Reef and have our COVID safe plans and signs now on board.Departures are scheduled on sleected dates, and we will need a minimum number of passengers to make it viable. So, we ask to please accept some flexibility and a lot of understanding as we start our tours back.

New COVID restrictions means reduced guest numbers of 10 persons, everyone gets their own equipment for the entire trip: no sharing. All day help yourself snacks, and all meals prepared individually on board. We are also ready to operate our Full DAY 2 dive Outer reef trips (6am to 6pm ) in the summer months, and we return to the Shark Diving / Coral Sea / Holmes Reef between October through to March.

Call to book to guarantee the best rate and ask the Captain about the best sailing conditions and departure dates. Look out for select scheduled departures on our booking page, and COVID SPECIALS direct bookings secure free dive gear hire and reef tax included!

At this stage we are still bound by many restrictions such as ‘social distancing’ so to make that possible we like to schedule departures on ‘fair weather and sunny dates’. By selecting days where we can assure the best cruising conditions possible, we can manage numbers accordingly ensuring social distancing measure onboard the S.V. Rum Runner.

If you would like to be added to our ‘potential guest register’ with further updates, please e-mail us with your interest at info@rumrunnercairns.com.au. Any bookings made direct with Rum Runner Cairns, which we are unable to honor or which you need to cancel, or are unable to reschedule, will receive 100% full refunds.

Rum Runner Cairns have been providing Cairns Reef Trips since 2005 and in that time we have gained valuable experience of the area we tour and where the best spots to go are. We take regular groups of up to 16 people for Cairns snorkeling expeditions where guests get to see some of the most beautiful parts of the Great Barrier Reef. Our services are value added with Cairns scuba diving expeditions to some very unique parts of the Great Barrier Reef marine park and we ensure all of our services are operated in the most professional way. If you have never been scuba diving before don't worry! We have trained and certified Cairns PADI course instructors who can help you get the skills necessary before you come out with us for a reef diving trip. And if you ever wanted to go shark diving Cairns this is our specialty with trips to the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea expeditions to take divers to places where spotting all types of sharks is possible.
