Jack's Diving Locker is a 5 star PADI IDC resort. We have an award winning kids program, 5 boats, 2 shops, and LOVE to teach and help people explore the adventure of Hawaii.
Jack’s Diving Locker began in August 1, 1981 in Kona, Hawaii. “Jack” was Jack Clothier, one of the original owners of BoJack’s Dive Center on Oahu. He was instrumental in bringing sport diving to the state of Hawaii in the 1970’s. He and wife Tina moved from Oahu to Kona and started Jack’s Diving Locker.
In 1982, scuba instructors Jeff and Teri Leicher moved to Kona from Oahu and joined Jack’s Diving Locker. The couple enjoyed the unspoiled marine environment along the Kona coast and thought it would be the perfect place to raise their son, Kawika. They ended up taking over the diving classes and charters with Jack’s Diving Locker while Tina Clothier continued the retail shop after Jack passed away in 1982.
Fast forward to today - From the start, Jeff and Teri Leicher of Jack’s Diving Locker had a vision to share Hawaii’s underwater world with a focus on friendship and a spirit of adventure. The couple loved meeting new folks and taking them to dive sites on the Kona Coast such as Suck’em Up Lava Tube, Golden Arches, or Kaiwi Point. With crystal clear water, beautiful coral reefs, lava rock arches and caverns, Jeff and Teri knew they were in the perfect place for their profession. Divers enjoyed the colorful reef fish, curious sea turtles, playful dolphins, and much more. To this day, Jeff, Teri, and the staff at Jack’s Diving Locker have an amazing time showing their divers the wonders of Hawaii’s marine environment.
