Comments This was the 4th or 5th time we have dived with Jack's and their service keeps us coming back. Large, well maintained boats. Very friendly shop and dive staff. Also, many of their staff members have been with them for years, which is always nice to see in a dive op.
We did 2 days of 2 tank dives plus the Manta night dive. Corals were in pretty good shape in the spots we dove, with plenty of fish. On our last dive at Manta Ray Bay, we saw a 12 foot tiger shark, a large school of dolphins, and a manta! We saw mantas every day, and of course the manta night dive is a blast.
Hawaii is expensive: $125 for a 2 tank dive, but we were never pressured about our bottom times, and had several dives over 1 hour. My only nitpick would be that I wished they left at 8AM instead of 9AM. By the time we got back to the dock, it was after 2PM, which made it too late to eat lunch and too early to eat dinner by the time we got cleaned up after diving. But Jack's is a first class operation.
