Great experience! From the dive shops and retail staff to the boats, captain and crew. I work for a dive shop on another island and found their operation to be worthy of a 5 star PADI dive operation. The crew were very attentive to the divers needs and safety. Thorough boat & dive briefings, and top notch dive equipment.
We did the Manta dive and were in awe of the setup and the experience. All I can say is that we WILL be back and WILL recommend JDL to anyone wanting to dive the big island.

I live here and I buy all my dive gear from Jacks. They have good rental equipment if you need while visiting. They have dive excursions for all levels so the experienced don't have to dive with the beginners (unless you want). They know all the dive sites and have several boats. The only thing I can fault them is sometimes they have really full boats so check them out. Very professional.

Before we went to this company we had booked several dive and snorkeling excursions with another dive operator. Their performance was more about themselves, getting interaction with dolphins etc rather than ensuring that the people who paid for the experience. They were late, slapdash, and practically ignored three people on board, (a mother and her two teen daughters).
After two disappointing trips with them, we then went to Jacks Dive Locker. What a difference! The crew were informative, punctual, fun, and fabulous. They looked after everybody on board, took us to some lovely dive sites, were professional and friendly. Even if we were unable to find the fish/ turtles/ whatever we were looking for (its always the luck of the draw, as they are all free and wild!) they showed us all the local fish, flora and fauna that were available. I would recommend them heartily. Great conpany!

We had a wonderful experience diving with Jack's crew. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The crew does a great job of keeping everyone safe and having fun. We did reef dives, manta dive with a night tour, and advanced dives. Kudos to Sara, Jason, Keller, Mongo, and Juan for the great diving experience. Thanks to all the captains and other staff that helped to make our diving pleasurable.

Did the PADI Mants specialty and had an informative class and then the two tank evening/night trip was fantastic. My wife doesn't scuba but she did the snorkel with a very patient guide she loved. I like the company enough to come back two days later for a morning two tank dive. Great boat with great crew.
