Comments 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.
