We (my wife and I) have been fortunate to have dived all over the world, and have even owned my own Florida scuba store with a charter boat operation for 14 years. Having said that, I have never seen a more organized, friendly, and knowledgable staff, both in the main store and aboard their dive boat, including my own company! When they can look at their computer, days in advance, and tell you the crew you will have for the Manta Ray dive, that is organized!
The dive was, in a word, spectacular! Keller, the divemaster, was enthusiastic to the max along with Capt. Alexie (sp?). The boat has a hot shower, the snacks were the best we have ever had on a boat, and there is plenty of room on the 46 Newton. We set up for the manta dive and several mantas came close, but then Keller moved us about 100 feet and we were literally swarming with mantas. Many operators would have been happy just to let you see a couple and make life easy for themselves, but he made sure that we were getting the full amount of action available. And "swarming" mantas is what we had! Literally coming directly at you and from behind at the same time. A magical experience, and one that gives the manta dive at Yap a run for the money (We have done that dive as well). We saw more mantas here than all of Yap. Naturally there is always bad/good luck involved in being at the right place at the right time, but what can you say when surrounded by several dozen mantas! In sum, Jack's Diving Locker runs a safe and well organized operation and deserves 5 stars for this experience.
