Comments Dove three days with Jack's. The main retail shop is in the Coconut Grove shopping center. You can enter from Alii Dr, but it's easier from Kuakini Hwy. Ride their van from the shop or meet at their little shop at Honokohau Harbor. If you dive multiple days, they'll store your personal or rental gear at the harbor. Shop has a pool for training and a large gear selection. We were there July30 to Aug1. Water temps right at 80, 80 to 90' vis and air temps upper 70s. All the Captain's and DMs were friendly, professional and seemed like they enjoyed being out.
2 tank day dive at Hoover and Eel Cove. Diver II boat, Capt Jeff and DMs Sarah and John. Sarah is really up on her sealife and especially the small stuff. At Hoover saw all the usual, plus a single Manta flyby, Conger eel, Thorn of Crowns, Pipefish and Morays ... Subscribe to get the full story.
