Aloha, The ease of booking and the knowledge of the dive masters and staff were first rate. The shop was easy to find and the parking was good. The shop has a lot of merchandise if you want to increase your dive kit too. While seeing mantas is never guaranteed, my wife and I had a wonderful experience of seeing... More

Mantas!!!! Amazing. We did a night dive and a night snorkel to see the mantas on two separate occasions. The Dive was amazing. We loved every minute. We were lucky-tons of mantas were in the area as well as dolphins and whales. It was spectacular. The team at Jacks are professional and ensure a safe diving experience. I strongly recommend...

Kellar with Jack's Diving Locker does a great job leading dives or taking video and photos.The manta dive is amazing. They have identified over 50 different manta rays ( by their belly markings). The manta dive is easy. The dive in the park right outside the marina is even easier with a lot of big and small critters to see!... More

I'm a PADI Instructor and have been diving with Jack's for almost two weeks now. In addition, I did a snorkel trip with my family; including almost - six granddaughter. Outstanding staff and client service! Don't miss the manta dive/snorkel, and for a really unique black-water experience, the Pelagic Magic - easiest night dive you'll ever do! The dive sites...

I was on the Big Island last month. In my research on Kona dive shops, Jack's was the only shop that I contacted which actively offered a shuttle to the harbor from their Kona shop, saving my chauffeur wife the time. So that was a non-diving plus for Jack's, but the good news continued. Booking the dives ahead of time... More

We did two dives with this company on our trip to Kona. The first one we did was the Manta Ray night dive. This was a very cool dive, but I would not recommend it with this company. The guide we had was not very friendly. It seemed like he was just going through the motions. I got the impression... More

My Daughters and I spent a week in Kona and most of our time we were diving with the Crew from Jacks Dive Locker. The Morning Two-Tank Dive is beautiful. We went to eel Cove, Golden Arches, & Coral Garden. We loved seeing a couple of white tip sharks sleeping in a cave. Our guides Sharp, Jaun, and Josh made... More

Let me start by saying we did not do the Manta night dive. We dove 2 days for a total of 4 dives. My youngest son Kyle (10 yrs old) finished his Jr. open water dive certification on referral. Sven was an excellent instructor for him and he had great patience with a young diver. My other son (13yrs old)... More

Very professional scuba trainers in a perfect location (Big island). Highly recommended. We also went snorkeling at night to see Manta rays. Out-of-this-world experience.

We didn't want to commit to boat diving with a group, and we had a car, so we chose to rent diving gear and go beach diving on our own. Elaine at Jack's spent a full hour with us fitting us out and making sure we had the right sizes and briefings. We rented full gear for 2 people, plus... More
