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.
