Comments Rum Point, for over a year through e-mails, confirmed you could dive the trips for the Whale Sharks as often as possible as well as plenty of reef dives on other days. WE found out upon arrival they had no boats going out to do any dives because of 7' seas where the sharks are. Also there were only 7 to 10 people scheduled at the resort over ten days. We were sent to Sea Horse, who also seemed put out that they had to take four of us diving. Even though Rum Point could have taken us to reefs inside the "big water" they chose not to because there was only four of us. When Rum Point finally went out to the Sharks, for the remainder of the ten day trip, there was no other diving available ( at any resort on Placencia). You either battled the 7' to 13' seas ( which all dive masters said was normal)in hopes to see the Whale Sharks or you remained at the resort.Expensive trip to have only gotten one dive in!!!!Rum Point food very americanized. Same items every night!!!!
