My husband and I were in Kona last week on a dive liveaboard but made a point of coming in a day early to try the Pelagic Magic black water dive with Jack's Diving Locker. They were very well organized, called us to confirm, gave us a detailed and educational briefing before the dive, and were very safe and accommodating... More

Hi, I just wanted to thank the staff at Jack's Diving Locker for adding to a wonderful summer vacation. I found their staff to be very informative and helpful in assisting me in both their manta night dive and planning shore dives in and around Kona. I must complement you on the friendly and professional manner in which your staff... More

Eric is an awesome guide! He took good care of us and we were blessed to see lots of Manta's on our dive night. At one point, we counted 6 and they were just swarming at us trying to gobble all the plankton! This is an experience worth having! I would do it again...hopefully next time I can get my... More

I was lucky enough to have been boating, snorkeling, and soaking up ocean awesomeness with JACK's DIVING LOCKER for 5 days at the end of July and beginning of August. There were 15 of us, and we all had the same AMAZING experiences. Jeff is fantastic and professional, Alexis was a Great and Kind boat captain, and Jeremy's and Peter's... More

Jack's Diving Locker is by far the best outfit in and around Kona. The following review is mostly concentrated on our experience with our dive guide/instructor, Josh. Josh was absolutely amazing and has a gift for teaching and connecting to divers on all levels. Both my wife and I are college professors, and we both know how difficult it is... More

We went on a two tank boat trip with Jacks Diving Locker. The organization was perfect and efficient. The boat was nice, the dive briefing really good. The rental equipment was in very good shape. They even allowed to bring our daughter onto the boat for snorkeling. She could snorkel during the time we were diving and was supervised by... More

Great dives. Nothing else quite like the Manta Night Dive. 25+ mantas for 45 min. Surreal!! Glad we chose this operation, we were one of the first boats on site and did an afternoon dive as the sun was setting to see the area, and check out some cool reef, garden eels and a few mantas free swimming. Came back... More
