Comments Enjoyed diving with Jacks. They ran a well organized operation They set up your gear between dives and their personnel were very willing to provide assistance. I was on a cruise with my girlfriend aboard the Pride of America. We had a free day in Kona. They picked me up at the cruise boat dock and drove me to their boat and return. We could take tours of the island. I chose to Scuba Dive with Jack's locker. The two sites that i dove were "Not Black Castle" and "Old Airport." Coral formations were very nice. Saw starfish and a crest of thorns on the first dive. Sea life was a bit sparse. However, after the second dive we got in the water and swam with some pilot whales for a very short time. I saw one whale swim directly under me. I found the water rather cold for Hawaii, However this is the Hawaiian winter season. I was sorry I didn't bring my 7-mil wetsuit. Instead I dove with 3-4-5 wetsuit. Water temperature was about 70 degrees. I was in Hawaii 30 years ago in May and the water seemed much warmer.
