The new shop at Jack's Dive Locker is world class. The friendliness of the
people that work there may be the best you ever encounter. The only
negative is that to do three dives a day takes the entire day to get the
boat from the shop to the dock and to the sites and back lugging the gear
around. The shore diving is excellent for beginners. The primary reason to
come to Kona is to see the whales, mantas and dolphins. If they are not
here you may be disappointed. The night manta dive may be the most
memeorable of your life if the mantas show up--be sure to give it a try or
you will regret it.
