The crew were nice enough people but unfortunately there were no Manta Rays. What really disappointed me was I read that they had not seen any or very few in the last several weeks. Then I heard the crew talking that they had been spotted south of where we were but they didn't want to go there because it was... More

We made our trip from Houston, Texas. Our family and friends with Texans Scuba came out to Kona Hawaii for some spectacular diving with Jack's Dive Locker. The staff was warm and welcoming and beyond friendly from the minute we showed up the first day. All of the staff and dive masters were extremely knowledgable about the sea life and... More

We were so lucky, we went out as snorkelers with Jack's diving locker for a night diving and snorkeling trip. And we saw manta's on both snorkeling moments! We had dinner (turkey sandwich, chips, cookie) in between the snorkeling. The night snorkeling over the so called fire pit was amazing! We saw many many manta rays feeding on plankton and... More

From the folks who run the shop to the boat crews this is the best dive operation in the Islands. What you see on their web site is what you get from an experience standpoint. Very professional operation.

From booking through the end of my trip Jack's was excellent to deal with. Staff were prompt, professional, funny, accommodating, caring and passionate. Rental gear was in excellent condition. Choice of dive sites was fantastic. Hot water shower on the dive boat was the greatest surprise EVER. And the night time mantra ray dive was literally the COOLEST!!! Where else... More

I just did my Advanced PADI Open Water Certification with Jack's Diving Locker and it was a great experience: from my initial phone call with Shannon (who answered all my questions with patience and expertise) to my instructors Kate and Zilla, who were knowledgeable, fun, and helpful. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was that I... More

Aloha Jackson, I'm glad to hear you had such a great time taking your PADI Advanced Diver class with us! And I also appreciate you bringing up the issue of having the same instructor throughout the course. We do try to do that most of the time, and I'm sorry that Kate got pulled away for other duties that night.... More

This diving experience was one of the best I have ever had. I have not dived many dives and only received certification a couple of years ago. I took the ReActivate and refresher class the day before my dive. Cassandra was an amazing teacher and I highly recommend her. On the day of the dive, I told the crew that... More

My family did the Manta Afternoon/Night 2-tank SCUBA dive. Our guides (Jeanie and Mongo for scuba), boat captain (Alexia), and even the snorkel guides (Juan Carlos and Shannon) we soooo friendly and helpful. We have done many dives (Jamaica, Turks & Caicos, Honduras, Florida Keys, Australia, Cayman Islands, etc.) and this is probably the most well-run outfit we have used.... More
