Scheduled a couple of beach dives with them. Josh is excellent Dive Master/Instructor. He represented the business well. Everyone I dealt with at Jack's had a great attitude. Heard different folks in the shop commenting on how happy they were with the dive operation. I'll b back...

I can’t state this strongly enough: Everything about Jack’s Diving Locker is first rate. Everything. My wife and I were on a cruise around the Hawaiian Islands, and we wanted to go diving at the ports we visited. At Kona, I knew it was going to be a little iffy – we would only be there for part of the... More

Just got back from the night Manta dive with Jacks. Great experience all the way around, starting with out with the great folks working the shop and ending with the professional staff operating the dive boat. Captain Alexia was simply wonderful, as was dive master Eric. Eric was very knowledgeable about fish identification. Very nice first dive over beautiful hard... More

I was referred by a longtime friend and Kona local for the night Manta Ray dive. I went to the website to confirm my date and then called to schedule. They were great on the phone and the scheduling was seamless. I was enthusiastically greeted at the shop and the paperwork was simple. They had all of my rental gear... More

I've dived all over the world, but I must say that the experience we had with Jack's Diving locker was the best. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and professional, we saw species of fish and other aquatic life that was very unusual (they knew exactly where to go for different critters and asked us what we wanted to see!)....

My husband sent my 2 sisters and mother on the dolphin snorkel trip. We had heard about it thru friends. My mother who is not a swimmer and very nervous around water even donned snorkel gear and with the undivided attention of our guide, Josh was able to get this 75 year old woman in the water and enjoy the...

We had a great experience with Jack's Diving Locker. It had been a few years since our last dive so my wife and I took their refresher course to get up to speed. We had two great boats dives off of the Kona coast in 30-60 feet of water. The divemasters led small groups and pointed out highlights and undersea... More

READ BEFORE BOOKING!!! Did the manta ray night snorkel. Tour was good however we paid $95 each. Boat takes you to the same place every tour goes. When we were in kailua kona most places offered the same tour for $65. We would've cancelled but they had our credit card details and it was less than a day when we... More

jacksdivinglocker, Manager at Jack's Diving Locker, responded to this review

While we appreciate the reference to the 'great tour', we think its important for other readers to be aware that there are significant differences to consider, and that the majority of operators are not charging $65 for these tours. Differences worth considering are: our well trained In-water supervision, our high quality rental equipment including wetsuits, corrective lenses, and sizes from... More
