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

I did the 2 tank morning dive and had a great time. Sara was a great dive guide with a sharp eye--she found a black frogfish! Jack's Diving Locker seems to have many great diving options, and I would gladly join them again for their other dives. Of note, we saw whales surfacing only yards away from our boat before... More

Did a dive with them; they were very accommodating to our situation (fam with 10yo) and let us split a two tank dive. On the dives the dive master was great to point out marine life.

Had friends and family for the holidays; one had a birthday and one graduated college. Instead of individual gifts we decided to do group activities. Did the night manta snorkel and even with no mantas showing and some sea sickness it was a spectacular time. Jacks also compensates not seeing any mantas with the promise of a no charge future...

First off, Id like to say that all the dive masters were extremely funny and also very professional at the same time. They were very good at checking up on me (as the youngest in both of the dives we went on), and Katie especially on my second dive trip helped me when my buoyancy started to get a little... More

My (older) kids did their Certification Dives (2-tank/day over two days between Xmas & New Years) w Jack's & even though one of them couldn't do the first day, due to a sinus cold (couldn't equalize), Patti did an awesome job of trying to make it work, so that my son could get certified before we headed back to Waikiki!...

I visited Hawaii over the Christmas season and did a pool refresher and a two tank dive with Jack's Diving Locker. Being the peak holiday travel season, the shop was really busy. There were 8 people in my pool refresher session, including some non-certified intro divers (I am certified but hadn't dove in a few years). That being said, my... More
