I was really surprised that we didn't have to travel for hours to get to beautiful dive sights, beautiful marine life were abundant and they put us right on top of them.

A very good team and a good training. They take care about everything, equipment, water, food... A really great experience in the Hawaiian's west coast. So much things to see (even if you only snorkel) : manta ray, eagle ray, turtles and so much aquatic life. Thanks for the experience and for the good time spend with you guys and... More

Last week I did my OW cerification ( by referral) with Jack's and then had 4 dives after my certification dives, including a night dive with the Manta Rays. Being a newbie and not so good a swimmer, I was nervous to say the least. So I asked for a pool review and also to have the same instructor for... More

I did the manta ray night dive with Jack's back in 2006. Even though we didn't get to see the mantas feeding then (the plankton didn't cooperate, keep in mind that nature still has the final say), and I've probably dove 50 times since then including Thailand and Egypt), it was still one of my best most memorable dives ever....

Diving with Mantra Rays was going to be my highlight of my 2 weeks in Hawaii, so I researched the different dive companies and Jacks Diving Locker always came up top, so I when ahead and booked a night dive for myself and a snorkel for my girlfriend. Obviously the experience was all about the mantra rays, but I was... More

I hadn't been diving for four years. Jack's suggested a pool refresher course the day before I was to dive. It was just the ticket. John was great in refreshing my skills. I was comfortable diving the next day. My favorite sights were the Eagle Ray and the Garden Eels. And the boat ride was a hoot. Keller kept us... More

On a referral from a friend, my son and I planned a combined day and night dive trips (4 in total), thus saving on gear hire. The departure time was a nice 9am. On our first trip we had Capt. Bob and Keller was our instructor. On our second dive we saw a large tiger shark, eagle rays and a... More

3 out of 4 of us had a great time. the 4th got very seasick (eventhough he took bonine before the trip). Be aware that the site they are going to right now south of the marina is about a 25-30 minute boat trip. if you get seasick, take precautions. The crew appreared to be chipper and helpful, but I...

I had great diving experience with Jack's Diving Locker at the beginning of May. The staff was top notch!! They went the 'extra mile' that made my two dive trips with them more enjoyable. The boat crew on the Kea Nui had their drill down to a science, from the organization in setting out the gear, the method of getting... More

We chose JACK's DIVING LOCKER for our manta ray night dive and 2 specialty courses, based on the reviews. Well, it's confirmed, these guys deserve their 1st place for the excellent service and professionalism. The night dive was just the most AMAZING experience ever!! We had the chance to have Keller Laros himself as our instructor (such knowledge and experience... More
