Comments This was our third stay on the Big Island and diving with Jack's Diving Locker. Service and staff at Jacks' was great as usual. We dove 2 days of 2 Tank Boat Dives. First day we went to Lone Tree Arch & Eel cove. We saw 3 octopus, spanish dancer, nudibranch, tritons trumpet, dragon wrasse, white mouth eel, dragon eel. DM Alicia was great at pointing things out and kept a good pace. Second day we went to Kaloko & Turtle Pinnicle. Lots of canyons & we had a strong current. Hard to stay together as a group. DM Elaine was going too slow for the group and was catering to a fish counter for REEF. Pat was not weighted properly and kept floating up. When we got back to the boat we found out Capt. Doug had given her 4 less pounds than asked for. We still had a fun day and saw lots of good stuff. Flat Fish Flounder, peacock groupers and a group of dolphins. The stay at the Wyndham was very nice. It was made to look like a 1930's Hawaiian Plantation. I would go with Jack's again. It is a well run dive operation.
