Jack's Div­ing Locker

Add some ad­ven­ture to your life — ex­pe­ri­ence the Pelagic Magic™ night dive off the Kona coast

Sport Diver - - Contents -

Have you ever dreamed of float­ing in an inky black abyss, drift­ing peace­fully along a cur­rent line some­where in the Pa­cific Ocean? Or watch­ing tiny or­gan­isms seem­ingly made of light and rain­bows make their way around you?

Jack’s Div­ing Locker’s most ex­treme dive, the Pelagic Magic char­ter, is a one­tank dive. This ex­pe­ri­ence be­gins just af­ter dusk, with the boat teth­ered off­shore in the deep dark sea.

Jack’s Div­ing Locker — a Kona-based op­er­a­tor on Hawaii Is­land — takes small groups of six divers max to see what drifts by in the night, usu­ally not de­scend­ing any farther than 50 feet. And what does drift by is amaz­ing. The mes­mer­iz­ing jel­ly­fish put on a color­ful dis­play that can only be de­scribed as breath­tak­ing. Some zoo­plank­ton, that only rise to the sur­face to feed when the lights go out, are now vis­i­ble. Every­one’s dive lights are but small twin­kles in the vast black­ness of the sea, mak­ing for an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence.

Pelagic Magic is one of many ad­vanced dives of­fered by Jack’s Div­ing Locker, in­clud­ing deep dives off steep drop-offs, drift dives over un­spoiled ter­rain, lava tube and cav­ern ex­plo­ration, and de­scend­ing upon a small wreck .

But that’s not all that divers can en­joy off Kona. Jack’s Div­ing Locker of­fers two-tank trips to the best sites the is­land has to of­fer, with op­tions for ev­ery level of diver.
