As a new scuba diver, having gotten my open water certification 2 months ago, I wanted to dive while on a vacation to the Big Island, but was somewhat intimidated by the thought of my dive buddy and I going off on our own in Hawaii. Fortunately, members of our local dive shop recommended Jack's Diving Locker. We decided to... More

2 dive Manta dive. Would have rated 5 of 5 if the shop staff had done a better job. The boat, dive masters, and the dives were fantastic. Saw multiple Manta at dusk on first dive. Half sandwich that was really good and a short break later and we jumped in for the night dive. Had to time our stride... More

We did 3 different dives with Jack's. A morning 2 tank dive, the advanced 2 tank dive, and the manta night dive. All of the dives were top notch. Friendly, knowledgeable and skilled crews, beautiful dive sites, good prices. Can't wait to come back to the big island and dive with Jack's again.

This is a great outfit with service and fun being a synonymous set of ideals for them while taking on a very serious responsibility... the sport of scuba diving. We felt very relaxed the entire time with our small dive group not exceeding 6 people. The dive master continued to pursue the enjoyable sea life and artifacts as they presented... More

Went out on the Manta Ray snorkel with my boyfriend while we were in Kona on vacation. We saw 24+ mantas, a fishnado and a sea turtle! I was very impressed with the professionalism and good humour of our guide and our boat captain. They made a wonderful night unforgettable. Worth every penny

We visited the Big Island in October of 2014. The shop is easy to find and they have tons of parking. Shop is well equipped and if you bring you gear they have a dive pool so you can test your gear before the dive. They also offer camera rentals if you don't feel like bring your rig along. Staff...

Took our family and NY guests on the manta snorkel. Staff at shop was excellent with our guests and 9 year old. The night was absolutely amazing, probably over 40 mantas, many barrel rolling so close it was hard not to get touched. Crew and captain were very professional yet made you feel like you were on a friends on... More

I went diving with Jack's Diving locker and had an amazing time. They were very professional when arranging everything beforehand. When my dad and I arrived off of the cruise ship, they promptly picked us up, took us to the office for paperwork, and then we headed out to the office at the dock for gear fitting. The boat was...

My wife and I were looking for something to do last minute while in Kona for the ironman. We were able to book the nighttime Manta Ray snorkeling adventure. Many thanks to Sharp, Juan Carlos and Captain Matt. It was an awesome time!

We had time for only a half-day dive during this trip to the Big Island. We had good memories from Jack's from our last visit eight years ago, and were happy to find their business thriving. We did the afternoon and night manta dive and were very fortunate to have several manta sightings on the first dive as well as... More
