I'd read a lot about Jack's and their 5 star staff and crew as well as hearing rave reviews from friends and colleagues so naturally booking a dive was at the top of my Big Island firsts to share with my bride to be. We never wanted our time with them to end! :-) The Leicher's have truly created a... More

Two words for this excursion! WOW and AMAZING! We went out on January 19 for the Manta ray snorkel and there was a bit of a swell happening but thanks to Jeremy we had the best snorkel of our lives! There were 6 mantas but it seemed like more. They danced and dove all around us and about three times... More

This is our 4th time diving with Jack's, a first class operation on the big island. We've been diving in Kona since '83 and for years went with a small boutique operation who we loved, but unfortunately didn't survive the economic downturn. Somebody recommended Jack's, probably the largest operation in Kona, and as such we we're very skeptical of getting... More

We went on 2, 2 tank dives with Jack's. The first day we went to two different sites and had great dives. The weather and visibility was great. Our guide was very good and we saw a wide variety of fish and other sea life. We saw one turtle and several sharks and eels. The second day was an afternoon... More

Swimming with the Manta Rays was an absolute highlight to my trip to Kona. From the checking in at Jacks Locker to being briefed on the boat by the Skipper to the great guides. They were very knowledgeable and i felt entirely safe through the entire experience It was an amazing experience and i could not fault Jacks Diving Locker.... More

My daughter booked a dolphin snorkel trip with Jack's Diving Locker for our family in Kailua- Kona. I had never been snorkeling and was very afraid. Jeremy was so great and calming. He talked me into getting into the water and stayed right with me taking me so I could see the Dolphins like everyone else. It was a beautiful... More

Jack's Dive Locker is great. Very professional and they take care of everything for you. We went on 2x two-tank dives. The staff were great and the have the dive experience down. One thing to keep in mind, diving in Hawaii is just not THAT good. Compared to many other places in the world, Hawaii comes up short. The only... More

We had our first trial dives with the owners of Jack's Diving Locker (Teri & Jeff) back in 1989. They inspired us to get certified and we have been diving regularly since 1991. We are probably not going to dive anymore, so we wanted to have our last dives with them as well. Jeff came along as our dive instructor/guide... More

My boyfriend and I spent several days with Jack's. We have very different needs, he is the diving pro and I am the beginner. The entire operation is professional, safe and organized for divers at all levels. First, Jack's can be busy, so call ahead and Patti and Rebekka will schedule your dives. Before we arrived, they knew that I... More
