I sent my two kids there for a discovery dive lesson. The instructor was great, and they had a good pool session. In the afternoon, the instructor was taking them to the public beach at the Pier to do a shore dive session, and I asked to go along to snorkel and take pictures of the kids, the owner (named...

The Jack's Diving Locker team was great and accommodating for two families with children 6 and 9. The crew made sure that the little ones were able to participate in the activity and were generally helpful. Made it a great trip even though we saw the Hawaiian Spinner dolphins only from the surface and could not swim with them (the... More

My husband and I booked a night manta ray snorkling tour through Jack's diving locker. Our crew - Chris & Russell, and Allison (the captain of the boat) were very laidback, knowledgeable, and helpful. They offered to either drive us to the dock or give us directions for meeting them there, and hooked us up with all of the equipment... More

One of the best dive shops ever. Top notch crew. John, Eric and Sharp were awesome. Great boat with 2 fresh HOT water showers! The manta dive was so awesome we did it again while we were there. We saw 20-27 mantas on each dive. On one of our day dives almost everyone was back on the boat but I... More

The staff at Jack's worked with me through several difficult changes and screw ups in scheduling--always in a very friendly, happy-to-work-with-me manner. Every encounter I had with Jack's encouraged me to pursue the sport further. It is friendly, highly professional, and patient. I will be diving with Jack's again at the soonest possible opportunity.

great shop, helpful staff, even when busy. I liked the on line sign up and no paper work for the obligatory waivers. Directions from the shop to the marina were clear, but could have been better on finding the dive shop at the marina for outfitting prior to boarding. The boat crew and my dive leader (Pete) were professional, very... More

After inquring about the Night Manta Dive, we were assured it would be a great experience. The night of the dive they took us to a spot in the other direction then where we were told the Mantas were typically seen, because of a swell that came up. After making two beautiful dives, one at night, we didn't see any... More

We contacted Jack’s based on a referral by our local dive shop in AZ. From our very first phone call, the folks at Jack’s Diving Locker were very helpful. Making reservations was easy and they had a very fair 24-hour cancellation policy. The website descriptions of their tours & excursions made it easier to plan our trip. When we got... More
