As a former employee, which you can take however you do, I can say that I still care deeply for my co-workers, before they are left high and dry, thousands of miles away from home. Kona offers diving, much colder than you would expect, and you won't see nearly as many endemic species as you think. Quarters will be extremely... More

I've gone diving many times with Jack's, even did both my Open Water and Advanced Open Water certifications here. So it was a bit disappointing to see some of the changes when I dove with them again in January. Starting with the dive shop, a couple of the women working the desk and registers were way short on "aloha," maybe... More

Well organized crew, well maintained gear and equipment. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Was my first dive after hand surgery 5 weeks ago. Crew was very mindful and supported me putting my gear together. The dive with manta rays is an unforgettable experience. You should only be aware, that there is mild to strong currents, that forces you out... More

The instructors at this dive shop are excellent with lots of experience and good advice (offered post-dive). However, as a relatively inexperienced, certified diver, i felt uncomfortable with a group of 12 divers with more experience and not a lot of personal attention or assistance. If you are comfortable with group diving, it is a good shop but for the... More

I had a great time diving with Jack's Diving Locker - they're a super friendly dive shop, well organized and knowledgeable not only about the local marine life but also about any tech diving equipment you may be curious about.

We took my newlywed niece and her husband on the night manta snorkel with Jack's. Flipper, Josh and the Captain were awesome crew and made us all feel comfortable.

This was an incredible experience!! Up close and personal with these huge graceful creatures. We felt very safe as the crew had it all down to a science. We felt very lucky to have seen 8 Mantas and had 4 of them circling around us at one point. The seas were too rough earlier in the week to go. I... More

We did two 2-tank dives with Jack's and were very impressed. These were the most organized dive trips I have ever been on. The staff was welcoming, professional, efficient, and fun.
