Since the Hanabada Days
Bio: Joe moved to Kona with his family when he was just 12 years old. He soon befriended a strange kid named Miles who introduced him to the world of diving, and he never looked back. After Graduating from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa with a B.S. in Global Environmental Science he returned to Kona to work at Jack’s as a repair technician, captain, and divemaster.
Joe is factory trained to service most brands of diving equipment including Aqualung, Apeks, Suunto, Scubapro, SubGear, Oceanic, Aeris, Hollis, Atomic, Mares, Sherwood, Tusa, Zeagle, and more.
When night falls you will often see Joe pack up his tools and go on the Pelagic Magic dive. There is nothing he enjoys more than photographing the equally beautiful and bizarre creatures of the deep.

It was my idea, but I don’t think much of it. – Moe Howard
