Referral Scuba Dives

Referral Scuba Dives - Kona, Hawaii

Join one of our Jack’s Diving Locker professional instructors to complete your open water training dives in Kona, Hawaii where the water is warm, clear, and full of marine life.  Start your scuba course at your local dive center – referrals accepted from PADI, NAUI, SSI, and other agencies.  With documentation from your original instructor, you can join us for two days of diving with a total of four open water dives (at least one day on the boat, typically both).

After open water training is complete, most divers spend a few more days diving on our Two Tank Boat Trip and go on the world famous Kona Manta Ray Night Dive.  Divers are thrilled by observing large majestic manta rays somersaulting, gliding, and pivoting only a few feet away.  Come to Jack’s Diving Locker in Hawaii for fun and adventure while learning to dive!
